Happy Monday, friends! I’m starting off a fun series called “Betsy the Lotus Cow Says” where Betsy quips in about life from a moo-tivational and sassy manner.
Betsy’s quote for the day:
It’s okay to fail! That’s how we learn. There’s no such thing as a perfect life.
Oh boy. I tried so hard in not wanting to fail, but it happens. The Moon in Virgo part of me feels the need to make everything perfect and top-notch. Doing half-assed work makes me feel super guilty. However, the Sun in Taurus part of me realizes that I need to chill out. And perhaps for a good reason, too.
What I’ve learned over the past couple of years is that failing is part of our growth process. As much as we don’t want to admit it, failing helps us provide a newer perspective that we never discovered before until now. Whether if it’s career, life, relationships, etc…there’s plenty of opportunities for growth.
I think for many of us, we’re too focused (including myself) that having a perfect plan will set us up for a perfect future. It’s not a linear path all of us take. If you were to imagine your life in a graphical perspective, the line would be filled with ups and downs on the chart. Some points you’ll hit rock bottom. And that’s ok.
Today, I ask you to step aside the perfectionism and embrace those flaws. At the end of the day, we’re all human. Learn from your mistakes and understand that this is part of the larger experience at hand.
Rooting for you on this manic Monday!
