Perception vs Reality
I have been victim to the game of comparison; comparing myself to others who appear to have 'it' together. Whatever 'it' actually is I have no idea. But we all do it, especially women. We look at another and envy what we think they have or what life we think they live. But in reality we are all messy. I had the priviledge of being at a retreat this past weekend where we repeated the phrase, "Seeing beyond the imperfections". As we listenened to each others stories we were brought to a place of vulnerability and able to see each other for what we really were; beautifully messy! It was a very comforting and scary place to be but in the end vulnerability brings freedom.
