The perfect life is a dangerous myth. Perfection is not a natural state. It means that there is no need for improvement. On the other hand, we could choose to find everything perfect just as it is. This redefining of the word would eliminate the stress that many people put on themselves.
Granny did not have to be sexy
A century ago, most girls were trained to become good house-wives and mothers. The perfect wife was economical, humble, clean, a good cook, and was expected to serve her husband without complaining. The perfect woman in our time has to be slim, sexy, clever, friendly, happy, always nice and clean, and an allrounder who gets everything done with ease and grace. Certainly you will find a lot of examples in the media and on social networks of what a perfect life looks like, and what you need to do to fit in.
Influences of society
But what if you don´t fit in, and don’t want to fit in? Do we fail when our life is not like the life of most people in the society in which we live; or when we have a different opinion of life and its purpose? Do we really all have to be good daughters who are successful at school, and then study, work, marry and have kids, pets, a house, a car, and fancy holidays?
The easy path
Isn’t that boring? What else is possible? If one is in line with society, it is easy to go with the external expectations. If not, one might choose a different path. Women have all the possibilities these days. They can be astronauts, physicists, hairdressers, rock stars, soldiers, authors, single, housewives, mothers, gay, doctors, IT-specialists, and anything else. Listen to your inner voice, and trust yourself. Life is there to live and grow! The universe will support you. Learn to manifest.
A woman can also be and do different things during different stages of her life. In the end, nobody can sing your song, and dance your dance. Your life should fill you with joy and excitement. The needs of women have not been taken seriously for a very long time. It makes me sad to learn that even children find something to criticize about themselves. But where does criticism lead us? A flower will not blossom if it is constantly stamped on. Take good care of yourself, and make your wellbeing a priority.
Self acceptance and self love …
… are the key to leading a unique life and expressing yourself fully. Don’t compare yourself to others. Don´t make yourself wrong. There is no orchestra with just first violins in it. Use your instrument to give your special sound to the composition of life, and enjoy playing together with all the other souls.
