Years ago, I remember a family member saying some version of "don't get your hopes up" when I was excited about a potential job opportunity. And I can bet that I had also said similar messages, both to myself and others at some point in my life.
But when I heard that message that particular time, something really clicked in me. I remember thinking, “what’s the worst that can happen? I can get excited, get my hopes up, and I don’t get the job. But at least I would have gotten to experience positive emotions in the meantime.”
Since having that realization years ago, I made a commitment to allow myself to get excited and be hopeful, even if there is a chance that whatever it is that I am excited about may not happen.
By "perfect", I don’t mean that in a “positive/all good” kind of way. Instead, when I think of perfect, to me it means that whatever I am experiencing is in perfect alignment with what I am meant to experience in a particular snapshot in time.
Even if it is not something I have consciously chosen. Even if it is difficult. It is a deep realization that we often cannot see the big picture to really know what is "good" or "bad" in any given situation.
In this way, you can experience life with a deeper level of clarify, purpose, and enjoyment. You can get excited about the potential of things unfolding without worrying that you’re setting yourself up for disappointment.
