Today, I read a quote about ‘perfectionism’, and I got thinking how hard I am on myself—from looking at my ‘flaws’ and wishing they were gone or ‘better’—to ‘imperfections’ in my art and wishing they were more ‘precise’ or ‘better’.
When I look at nature—be it a tulip, a succulent, or stone, I don’t see imperfections, I only see beauty and perfection—each thing has its varying characteristics that make it unique and beautiful. If I can describe nature as perfection, then why not myself, or you? We all have our varying, beautiful, unique characteristics that make us who we are, so by saying, “I Am Perfection,” we embody IT—rather than describing ourselves as ‘perfect’ in the adjective form.
In my forthcoming coloring book of “Affirmations” designs, you’ll notice they are all stated in the noun form (VS the adjective), E.g. “I Am Beauty” (VS “I Am Beautiful”). So, however you see yourself, affirm “I Am Perfection”—whether you look at yourself in the mirror or with eyes closed—and really mean it. Say that a few times and see how you feel.
