Freedom in Imperfection (GWTW753)

I don’t know about you, but I’m telling stories in my brain about myself again. Ten days into the new year, I feel like all my faults and imperfections are fully displayed. My mind is flooded with questions. What am I doing wrong? What changes do I need to make so that things will be different? Why couldn’t I learn the lesson the first or even the fifteenth time? But in the middle of my pity party, I remembered a book recommended by Elizabeth Blake-Thomas in an earlier interview on Getting Work To Work: Wabi Sabi: The Wisdom in Imperfection. Page after page, the message seeps in ever slowly: I can discover freedom in the acceptance of my imperfections.

5 Ways to Find Freedom in Imperfection:

  1. It’s hard to renew your mind and find peace if you’re constantly going, working, striving, and stressing.
  2. Be gentle with your imperfections.
  3. Surround yourself with beauty.
  4. Embrace kintsugi in your life.
  5. Zoom out and look at the longer timeline of your life.
