The Perfect Protest

I simply adore Brene Brown and of her work on authenticity, vulnerability, and courage. In light of her newest book being released, The Gifts of Imperfection, Brene launched a Perfect Protest. As someone working on detangling herself from the web of perfectionism, I couldn’t resist joining in. I hope you will, too!

    Love the concept and love the photo. You look resolute. I thought of Katherine Hepburn immediately upon seeing you….so solid in herself with an elegant dignity yet frank; able to show all of this through her eyes..

    Love this. Love Brene’s book (on my bedside table). Love the concept. Love your photos. LOVE THAT YOU ARE A FELLOW REDHEAD.

    Scary. I have grown too attached to my perfectionism, but I know it is unhealthy. Should I read it? You are a strong person and I trust that if you think it is good, then it is.

    Great photo, Meghan. The whole concept of perfection is one I’ve been struggling with myself lately. I realized how much time and energy I waste striving for a perfection that can’t be achieved, and then beating myself up when I don’t achieve it. It means that no matter how well I do on any given task, I’m left feeling deflated and joyless. I don’t pat myself on the back or celebrate the little victories. I miss the beauty in situations because I’m focused on what’s “wrong.” So lately I’ve been trying to consciously embrace imperfection. To be ok with less than 110%. To be able to say “I did enough”. Jeez it’s hard but your picture and post will continue to be a source of inspiration for me. I also LOVED your blog on commenting… so I’m double commenting on this one! You articulated how wonderfully validating and community-building comments are. I am so thrilled when I receive one and like you, enjoy making them more and more each day.

    Great picture! You don’t have to be perfect to be beautiful! I blog hopped over from the ordinary courage.

    So crazy to see those words here: “Growing Into Myself”. They have been in my mind and spilling into my journals for a few months now! Growing into myself and becoming unapologetic about being 100% me! More open, more authentic. Will check this book out for sure 🙂 LOVELY photo!
