For the Perfectionist (Motivation) Morning Meditation

Today’s morning meditation is designed to help you let go of perfectionism and just take action.

Good morning, beautiful.

This week, our theme is motivation.

Each of these meditations will consist of a quote that I hope will motivate you to live your life to the fullest today.

“If I waited for perfection, I would never write a word.” Margaret Atwood

Lately, I’ve been taking the time to teach my daughter the value of mistakes. The value of failure. The value of starting ugly, messing up and getting better with practice. From an early age, she showed signs of perfectionism just like her mommy, easily crumbling in frustration when she couldn’t do something perfectly the first time.

It has stopped her – and stopped me – from doing anything at all. So the lessons began, and I watched with wonder the magic that she allows in and the experiences that are given opportunities to breathe when she lets go of perfection and just does.

So this meditation is for the perfectionists like me. So you can practice letting go of the need to be perfect, and just allow yourself to be and do, so that you can be fully expressed.

So Let’s Begin…


So come inside,

And feel your shoulders relax,

Your face soften,

And your body melt.


Find your breath.

And let it slow you down,

As you breath in a little deeper,

And exhale a little longer.



If I waited for perfection, I would never write a word.


In what areas of your life have you been waiting for perfection?

What have you been hesitating on while you wait for things to line up perfectly?

What have you said no to because things weren’t perfect?

Let yourself sit with these questions and just observe what comes up.


Waiting for perfection extinguishes the magic within experiences,

Shrinks our evolution,

And holds us back from living a vibrant, imperfect life.

So live imperfectly today, my dear,

And write your words.

Namaste, Beautiful
