If we judge ourselves against perfection, suffering and sadness will be our companions.
.
.
If we refuse to judge ourselves, happiness is a possibility.
.
.
Acceptance, total acceptance, right here, right now, is the opposite of perfection.
.
.
Let go of that judgment, that need for approval, that need to win, accomplish, overcome.
.
.
Humility could be coveted over perfection.
.
.
Gratitude is more desirous for a happy life.
.
.
Perfection comes loaded with worry and insecurity.
.
.
Free yourself, let go, accept, be present, live fully.
