Get Past Perfect and Rise Up Real.

Did you know that certain Native American artisans weave small, purposeful mistakes into their blankets?

These master craftspeople include intentional slip-ups in their best work. But why?

Because they believe that the “mistake” is the very space that allows Spirit to move in and out of the fabric.

Take a moment and let that sink in. Then ask yourself …

What if the mistakes you wish you hadn’t made could be openings for Spirit in your life?

If that question freaks you out a little, I understand.

I’m Caroline Garnet McGraw, and I’m a recovering perfectionist. (And workaholic and codependent and people-pleaser. You know, just the usual.)

I’ve spent most of my life in abject terror of making mistakes. But in 2011, I started this blog as an account of the journey to get past perfect and rise up real.

A Wish Come Clear is about the lifelong odyssey that we take to come home to ourselves and each other.

    I tried to ck your perfectionism article as my favorite and i got this opportunity instead. Anyway. i don’t consider myself a perfectionist totally but i don’t particularly like to make myself vulnerable all the time cuz i don’t want anyone to know my rough imperfect edges. I have become better in sharing with those with whom i feel safe. luvya

    • Thank you for sharing, Dorothy – and I totally hear ya about not wanting to reveal the rough, imperfect edges. Brave to you for taking the risk of sharing with safe people. xo
