pərˈfekSH(ə)n/

noun

  1. the condition, state, or quality of being free or as free as possible from all flaws or defects.

  2. a person or thing perceived as the embodiment of perfection.

  3. the action or process of improving something until it is faultless or as faultless as possible.

How many times have you looked at someone else and said…they are perfect. they have the perfect life or the perfect hair, the perfect body, the perfect smile…..

stop. stop right there in your tracks.

Perfection is such a myth. Its actually just a pure load of crap. Not one of us is perfect. We are all insecure about something. We yearn to get a compliment from someone we love or even a complete stranger. We exhaust ourselves day in and day out trying to be this version of perfect that doesn’t even exist. We see magazines and social media that only portrays the highlight reel of peoples lives. No one wants to post they are broke and have cellulite covering their butt. But lets just be real for a moment. We are all just doing the very best that we can do. We are all a hot mess, some just hide it better than others. Am I right?

I struggle with body image and my weight. I can look at a cupcake and gain 5 pounds with that one glance. And every time I see a picture of myself, you know what I notice? I notice my crooked nose and my flaws.

Here is the reality….God doesn’t see our flaws, you know what He sees? He sees our heart. How different would our world be if that is what we saw in others?

Lets strive to stop holding ourselves to unattainable standards. Give yourself grace and love. And strive to see peoples hearts first before anything else.
