This blog is made based on passion. A passion to discover how one can achieve what the mind believe is ‘perfect’. In our everyday we are constantly defined based on what we own, what we represent, what we think, what we believe in and what we do. What perfect means to you for sure is different from what it means to me. However, both of us strive to become perfect and even more that others believe we are so.
I have for as long as I can remember tried to accomplish the perfect way of being me but whom defines what that is? I remember I as a 5 year old would look myself in the mirror trying to paint freckles on my cheeks. I believed “If I just had freckles I would be so much prettier and everyone would notice me”. I have brown eyes – being from the countryside in Denmark everyone had blue and I was so upset that mine differed to ‘everyone else’. This for many is small concerns which I completely agree with. However, my point with this is that we will always look for differences amongst our others and find the ‘mistakes’ we have or someone else have. The fact that 5 year old thinks like this is a clear evidence of this being so embedded in our culture that everyone does it – look at eachother to figure out what perfect is and look at how oneself is percieved as so.
I am interested in figuring out the different perceptions of being perfect – being successful in different societies, between different age groups and even between neighbours. Despite we all view it differently we all try to become it – but how do I become perfect or how do I start looking at myself and feeling I am good enough and in in the eyes of whom? I peronally believe that if society learned that every individual is perfect in their way we would all feel a lot better – however the fact is that this has been a part of the human species throughout all history. However can we not change this togehter?
This surely will be a journey and I would like to invite you to come along, get inspired and share ideas of where to look next for a different view of a perception of perfect.
Because together we will look to find what perfect is and figure out if what Salvador Dali said is true ,
