-Saint Frances de Sales”
it's fascinating to me how often i hear people casually say "nobody's perfect".
i recently challenged a friend/client who referred to herself in this manor by asking "how do you know you're not perfect?". she replied "i certainly don't feel perfect".
we all experience discomfort so we're obviously supposed to.
it is the experience of discomfort that creates the impetus for self care and improvement.
physical damage is the stimulus for enhanced cellular repair of the body (it's why we grow stronger from hard work). our intellect and emotions respond in similar ways, that which does not kill us makes us stronger; body, mind and spirit. we are indeed perfect as we all function so interdependently with the physical universe we reside in.
discomfort is a call to action, not an indicator of imperfection, quite the opposite.
if we are experiencing discomfort, our self-preservation and personal enhancement systems are functioning within the parameters of perfection in which they were designed.
