But you're probably never going to see the "this is me doing the dishes" selfie.
As generational consumers of high volume advertising, we have been mentally chewing on perfection for years. We are programmed to function on insecurity, it's how advertisers get us to buy things that we don't really need. But with this consumer insecurity, comes insecurity in general. We ride on the track on "not good enough" & end up feeling a vast lack in our lives in a deeper way.
With this underlying feeling of life insecurity, we participate in and perpetuate the illusion of having it all & having it all together.
But, guys, let's get real. Sometimes, life is shit.
Sometimes, we are going to feel bad, even when we are doing everything not to.
Sometimes, we will feel fear.
Sometimes, we will feel jealousy.
Sometimes, our judgements will take the front seat.
And this is ok.
This is real.
This is human.
This is where we can each, collectively, take a sigh of relief & drop the idea that life can only be good when it's good. That we somehow have to hide from the moments that don't get memes made after them. That in order to feel at peace, safe, connected, loved, our lives must look a certain way on the outside.
You can still be enlightened & at peace with your life & say this is some bullshit.
That is a bullshit government.
That is a bullshit ego.
This is bullshit communication.
That is a bullshit situation.
These are some bullshit dishes (which is what I said last night when I didn't do them).
We all have messy things in our lives, literally and metaphorically.
There's no need to hide from them. There's no need to affirm them away or mantra them out of our energy field. Just let it go. Just don't hold on to them.
Just see the messiness & drop it.
It's not who you are.
It's important to keep coming back to ourselves, slowing down, getting more intimate with the small details of our lives that make them rich & vibrant.
Hint: It's not a clean house, yoga body, new shoes or a perfect relationship.
