The Fight to Reach Contentment


“Life is not about perfection –
or a quest for perfection.
Life is about enjoying what we have –
for as long as we have it.”
– Jonathan Lockwood Huie

If you’re striving and struggling to obtain perfection at anything in life you will always be let down.

Trying to work for the perfect body, perfect relationship, perfect faith, perfect friendships will only lead to letdowns, heartache and discouragement. Eventually reaching a state of complacency and in extreme cases giving up all together and further fueling the fire of disparity of your dreams.

“Find your balance and stand with it.
Find your song and sing it out.
Find your cadence and let it appear like a dance.
Find the questions that only you know how to ask and
The answers that you are content to not know.”
– Mary Anne Radmacher

Understanding that as humans we will never reach perfection in anything and doing your best at whatever it is that you are doing is enough.

One tip is to never quite reach “good enough” but get close enough to feel empowered to continue.

I started truly working on my overall health about 3-4 weeks ago and the difference I am seeing is more than enough to fuel my motivation to hit the gym harder and longer.

Everything in life works the same way, find what works and what doesn’t, what feels natural and what doesn’t because that is where your heat and mind will meet and provide the energy to continue.

If you have to force it, maybe the priorities are wrong. I have heard a saying “fake it until you make it” and I do believe there is some truth to that within reason. Short term, and not settling will help to move from that to where you want to be.

Most importantly, knowing what is in your power to change and what should be given to God is imperative. Be the best you, you can be and let the rest go.

Life is too short to worry about what everone else is doing and trying to fit into what they have going on. Do what you need to do and life will place exactly what and who you need in your path.

That’s what faith is, living your life with love,intention and believing that God has the rest.

Shit happens regardless of what you do or don’t do… live life, don’t miss out waiting to become your dreams.
