Ever Wish You Had Permission to Just Be Human?

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

It’s true. Some master craftspeople include intentional slip-ups in their best work. 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 very mistakes you wish you hadn’t made could be openings for Spirit in your life?

It’s a subversive question, especially for a personal development blog. The stereotypical personal development site is all about the elusive quest for an ideal life.

But let’s get real here. We’re human beings, not paragons of perfection. We all wrestle with fear, self-recrimination, and shame.

I spent years terrified of making mistakes. Here’s my rap sheet: honors student, team leader, high-achiever, and recovering perfectionist.

Fortunately, I’ve realized that the real question isn’t Will I screw up? Rather, it’s How will I allow Spirit to move through the fabric of my life?

A Wish Come Clear is a personal development blog for real people who make mistakes, fall down, and dare to rise again.

    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
