Don’t Look For Perfection

In Anything That You Seek

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends๐Ÿค—

This morning while walking my dog I saw the most beautiful butterfly sitting on a flower….

It sat there for what seemed like forever (of course I didn’t have my phone with me to take a pic ๐Ÿ˜ซ) and while I was staring at it I noticed that it’s wings weren’t truly identical ๐Ÿ˜ฎ.. the markings were slightly different ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ…

All my life I thought butterflies were perfect… I thought that their wings were identical in markings and had never really had the chance to stare at one long enough to notice that they actually aren’t ๐Ÿ˜ฎ… That there are flaws, that as beautiful as they are…

They aren’t perfect!!! ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿค”

Why is it that strive for perfection??

In all reality we know that nothing in life is perfect…

Perfection is a fallicy cause everything has flaws yet we strive for something that can’t really be obtained cause there’s no such thing ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿค”

So today I made a pact with myself to stop looking for or expecting things to turn out perfect cause as long as I’m doing my very best…

My best is perfect for me… ๐Ÿค—

I truly believe that once we stop looking for perfection and we learn to except and embrace not only what we do but WHO we are and we accept all of our flaws .. Our lives become perfectly perfect for us…๐Ÿค—

It doesn’t matter what others think about you…

What matters is what YOU think about yourself!!! ๐Ÿค”

So don’t look for perfection in anything that you seek

Love ALL you are & ALL your flaws cause you’re beautiful & unique๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—

Have a beautiful uniquely you day ๐Ÿ’—

Hello World, My name is Ricci pronounced like Ricky, yet it's been mispronounced all my life and at my age I answer to just about anything ๐Ÿ˜Š I am a writer, a writer of motivational light. A writer about everyday life. My story is one of hope, inspiration & motivation... One that begins over a half a century ago, when life was much different than it is today. We all have our own story, for each of us is unique. Some have had it easy, some have had it hard. Yet I believe that each one of our stories can bring a bit of light to others and I hope mine will bring light to some of you. My goal is to tell my story with hope that others can see that no matter what happens throughout your life... You CAN prevail, even when it feels like you can't. For I know it's possible, even after the loss of a child, which to me is the most devastating life event ever... I know for I have and am prevailing each and every day. It isn't easy and there are days where I feel I cannot go on yet always know that You are NOT alone... Everything is possible when you believe. Everything is possible when you believe in YOU โคโคโคโคโคโคโคโคโคโคโคโคโคโค

  1. Years ago, an artist who taught a class I attended said that when you look at a drawing or painting and it looks real alive, if you examine it closely you will see that it is not completely accurate. For years I checked out artwork in great detail and he was right! Drawings and paintings that seem alive have little errors and imperfections in them, sometimes very small and sometimes so large I wonder how I missed seeing them at first glance. The drawings and paintings which are painstakingly accurate are admirable and some are beautiful, but they don’t look alive: they look frozen or copied. It takes an amazing artist to make a drawing or a painting look as though the living things in the art are truly alive, that the trees are going to sway in the wind, the water has fish swimming just out of sight, the animals are going about their animal business, and the people are about to turn and speak to you: it’s the kind of art that makes you feel as though you could step over the frame and become part of the painting, as though you could tell the model a joke and she would laugh with you.
    Real life has that quality: we are not symmetrically built, although at a glance we might seem that way. Tree trunks are not geometrically round, they are kind of round. Animals often have one leg that’s a tiny bit longer than the others, or eyes that are not set exactly the same on both sides of the face. Our brains are divided and have arguments, one side with the other, instinct against reason, animal desires against human social mores, what we see being different from what we perceive.
    That’s what makes us alive: we are real, and we are perfect just as we are. What we call our flaws are actually not flaws at all: they are simply differences that make each of us unique, as you said. Without those flaws, we’d have no reason to exist. We’d be frozen copies of one another.
