Exquisitely Imperfect

I’ve realized a few things in my life and the biggest realization (to date) is that life is exquisitely imperfect.

My imperfections makes me uniquely me. I’m not the same as anyone else, I’m not perfect. I love the mistakes I’ve made in my life they’ve brought to the place that I’m in right now, here in this moment.

Imperfections allow me to be in the moment and focus on each moment in order to fully experience and embrace each moment.

Allowing myself to fully embrace my imperfections allows me to learn and grow from each experience that I have.

Allowing myself to love my imperfections, gives me the necessary breathing room to jump into the flow of life.

Jumping into the flow of life allows me to breathe easier and think more freely. Being exquisitely imperfect is just being.

Embrace your imperfections, embrace yourself and dive into the flow of life.

Have a great Thursday. 🙂

Flowing Into Monday

Waking up today and being informed that we have no electricity was a bit unusual, well very unusual actually. My first thought was my apartment, my building, the entire complex, or further out than that? I wondered how far reaching was this outage.

Then I started to think of the things that I couldn’t do without electricity, for about 3 seconds anyway and no I didn’t time it. 🙂

My mind switched gears rather quickly and went to -I hope it wasn’t and auto accident, a cold cereal breakfast is fine, it’s not freezing outside, I have no where to go early this morning, I’ll shower later, and I can always post to this blog from my phone.

This is a significant switch for melancholy me (my holiday personality), and l found it quite interesting that it occurred.

Guess the meditating and getting back to just being in the moment as it happens is working for me after all.

I didn’t realize the impact of those simple things on my everyday life. Also didn’t know that it would spiral out beyond my writing.

Being in the flow of life is good and feels great. It’s something you have to consciously work at 24/7. It’s simply a state of being.

Being who you are, expressing your truths (at least to yourself if not to the outside world), being in the moment, just feeling alive on every level of your person.

And yes negative thoughts come up, but here is the key (for me), I merely let them be too. I don’t give them extra attention and they simply cease their chatter and be still.

 

 

What have you done to create a place of quiet? Do you any techniques for relaxation or meditation that you’d like to share? Comment and let me know.

Have a great Monday.

Righting the Writing

Rewriting this week has been – great. I figured out what was wrong with my whole manuscript and now I can concentrate on filling in the gaps. The two main characters now (finally) have their own voices, the protagonist has become more than merely a shadow, and the creatures are creepier.

Chapter one is now chapter two, a couple of the supporting characters are not so flat (they’ve been fattened lol), and the ending is righting itself – it felt skewed in a bad way before. I was also surprised with the new direction that the book decided to go in.

It’s flowing. I’m enjoying the flow. Feeling the flow. Going with the flow.

Now I’m off to visit the new blogs I’ve discovered as a result of the writing campaign I’m doing. Thanks to Rachel Harrie for starting the campaign.

Have a great weekend.
