I am Imperfectly Me


Our minds are beautiful gifts…when they work well. I have just started a six-week e-course with Brene Brown on the Gifts of Imperfection. Our thoughts control us. We can look back, as in this photograph, and recreate an image that happened long ago. I can smell the ocean, hear the waves crash, feel the mist in the air, and joy rises anew in my heart.

On the darker side though, we can reminisce and despair that we are not enough, we did not grab the opportunity, we were ungrateful–so many other negative messages bombard us. I am looking forward to these six weeks of journaling, drawing, creating, and digging deep into myself to free and heal myself from the voices in my head that perpetuate the childhood messages of not being enough.

What voices rumble around in your head, destroying joy and shattering sanity? Believe in yourself. You are enough. You are perfectly imperfect and that is all you need to be.



About sstyves

A Canadian prairie girl rooted in Ignatian spirituality, I seek God in all things. Whether I catch a glimpse of the Divine and delight in its presence in nature or in the beauty of an encounter with someone, I am ever so grateful that I can recognize the Creator. I greet each new day with hope and happiness, expecting blessings and miracles because I am created to praise, love and serve God. This blog is one way of realizing that through my writings, prayers, and photography. To God be the Glory!
