When we feel broken it’s because our ego is out of the way. This is actually what we strive for.
~Nancy Szakacsy, LMFT
Another gem from California neighbor, Nancy.
Discussing our mutual experiences in the past year, regarding pain and heartache, deaths and tough break-ups, a wonderful quote came about. It was definitely an”aha” moment for me. So when we give up being perfect, and admit that, hey, I’m human, and I can hurt…it’s actually what we strive for?
2 thumbs up.
As a legendary type-A perfectionist, coming into my mid-twenties as well as moving to Hawaii, has me re-thinking the need to be “on” all the time.
To finish all the work, get the straight A’s, to look a certain way, to get everything done.
Do what you can.
Drop the ego need to be perfect.
Then, jump into the ocean.
Or a laugh, maybe even a cry, with a friend, or by yourself… just be.
And you know what?
With the “getting real” has come true, genuine connection to my Oahu ohana (family in Hawaiian 🙂 and global ohana (Hi Mom and Dad, chingus (friends) in Korea, and California sisters).
So much love.
