Happy Muzic Monday loves! Today, I would like to share with you, the life of a perfectionist.
I have a demon inside of me, her name is perfection. Many of us have had our dealings with her, some more than others. She looks at other people and compares them to me. She wants to change my flaws to perfections. She thinks I’m never good enough, pretty enough, or thin enough. She puts me down for being different. She laughs at my personality, she bullies my self-expression, she terrorizes my self-esteem…The Muzic Monday Song of the Week is Running by Dj Quads. Listen below and watch the Muzic Monday Video all about perfection!
I hope you enjoyed this video I put together for you! It was fun compiling all my hula hoop bloopers into one hilariously freeing video. I used to hate it when i dropped my hoop but I’ve come to learn, it’s only a part of the process. This life of a perfectionist isn’t an easy one. She holds an impossible standard over my head that I will never be able to achieve. Nothing I do will ever be good enough, nothing I say will ever be good enough, I will never be good enough. It’s like World War III takes place in my mind. Perfection, you take away from happy moments, you make me feel inferior, you tell me I can’t when I can, you put fear in me that something won’t turn out perfect. Nothing is ever perfect and that is how you keep me stuck. Always striving for perfection, never being good enough, always needing things to be just right. I can’t do it anymore perfection, we’re through! I’m giving up on this life of a perfectionist.
The definition of Music to my ears is something that is pleasant or gratifying to hear or discover. I named this blog Muzic to My Ears because of my love of music and because I saw the phrase as a metaphor for life. I threw in the “z” because my name is Zoe. So this blog will now and forever be me sharing things that are pleasant and gratifying to hear or discover, like a life lesson, or a trip to an exciting place, or an amazing song by an indie artist. Real, unbiased words by a perfectly imperfect girl. If you can take anything away from this post, please let go of perfection, if you’ve lived the life of a perfectionist than you know what I’m talking about; it’ll tell you that you’re not good enough and to tey harder to be perfect. The real truth behind perfection is that you’ll never be good enough. So let go of the perfection demon, let her go terrorize something else, and just know that you are in fact, good enough!
Live a life that’s muzic to your ears!
An imperfect girl named
