Is Perfection the Root of all Evil?

How often have we put ourselves under Pressure so we appear to have the 💯 Perfect Life?


🔸I ALWAYS have the best hair.

🔸I ALWAYS have the best clothes.

🔸I ALWAYS have the best car.

🔸I ALWAYS have the best holidays.

🔸I ALWAYS do the best job.

🔸I ALWAYS say the the right things.

🔸I ALWAYS have the best results.

🔸I ALWAYS look my best online.

We could go on and on…


What are you missing out on in your never ending Pursuit of Perfection and the Perfect Lifestyle?

If anything slips from being “Perfect” then our world may come crashing down like a house of cards.

Is this Pursuit of Perfection the cause of so much Anxiety in the world?

Stephen has been practicing Mindfulness since completing a MBSR course in 2013. Following a personal tragedy in 2014, Stephen gained an appreciation of just how short life can be.
What started as a way of sharing mindful quotes and articles that inspired Stephen, grew into the Our Mindful Moments Facebook page that exists today. It is his belief that gratitude for the little moments in life, as well as a realisation of how short life is, is what helps Stephen “Ride the waves of grief” as he puts it.
