You are not perfect …and that’s okay!

You are not perfect

I looked at myself in the mirror one morning and told myself these simple words” I am not perfect… and that’s okay. It didn’t end there though, I decided to be a “better me”. I was not out to be better than my friends or anyone around me but simply be the best I could possibly be. That was about 18 years ago, even though I am not perfect, I am a much better person today because of that simple decision.  Here are some of the tips I find very valuable:

1. Love yourself: the first step in the journey to a better you is coming to terms with the fact that you are not perfect and if you think carefully about it no one is. Accept and love “you”.  For me at that point, I was grateful for my strength and looked to God to help me overcome my weaknesses.

2. Take practical steps: consciously exposing yourself to materials (books, CDs, DVDs) specific to the what you are working on is priceless.

3. Stay teachable: there is always something to learn and staying open to learn from others is equally important. I hope you find these tips helpful, look out for more tips on my next post on becoming a better you.

Thank you for reading!

  1. Reblogged this on Living Life Day by Day and commented:
    I loved this post – not because I think a mirror can be a dangerous thing, but because it’s so ‘me’. I look into my mirror and see age spots, dull eyes, tired complexion – for starters. Further staring leads to arms, stomach, hips and thighs which can all do with some serious toning. My hair is bored to tears from being held hostage daily in a tight bun and my entire persona is screaming: will somebody please please help me!!!
    It would be great to have a sexy hairstyle, smooth skin and a runway model body … maybe … realistically – not at my age! But I’m going to love myself, take practical steps and stay teachable; I’m definitely not perfect …and yes, that’s ok because in the meantime I can still try to be a better person. Do you agree?

  2. This is what I keep saying to myself, that I am not perfect but I am who I am. :-) I found your blog through Blogging 201 and will follow you now. Feel warmly invited to visit my blog too, and maybe follow it back if you find it interesting enough. :-)
