Why I am Perfectly Happy with My (Imperfect) Journey

For the longest time, I was striving for perfection in all areas of my life and failing miserably.

I thought that happiness was only achievable after reaching perfection.

It took me decades to fully realize, believe and accept that happiness is not at the end of a completion of some goal.

Happiness does not come with a goal weight being achieved.

Happiness does not come with a marriage proposal.

Happiness does not come with a pregnancy.

Happiness does not come with a promotion.

Happiness does not come with a degree.

Those are all events, people, experiences and goals which I wrongly associated with the entrance tokens into a world of blissful happiness.

Happiness comes from building and living a life that you do not seek escape from.

Happiness comes from being content and at peace with your current state.

Happiness comes from trusting the process and knowing you have the power to achieve the goals you desire.

Happiness comes from realizing that withholding happiness until you are a better version of yourself is the most punishing thing you can do.

The Perfectly Happy app helps ground me each and every day.

It allows me the time to sit with myself and focus on what is most important.

It provides me with the support to think positively, and to know that I am in control of my choices, life and future, and it does so in a fun, easy-to-use format.

Since being introduced to this app, my journey with self-love, self-acceptance and understanding the power of my limitless has only improved exponentially.

I have always believed in the power of vision boards, but this app is so perfect because of how you can take your vision board with you wherever you go.
