Perfection is something that we all strive for, but likely feel like we never achieve. Merriam-Webster defines perfect as “having all the required or desirable elements, qualities, or characteristics; as good as it is possible to be.” But is this really what we should be aiming for?
This month we’re all about the idea of “Relax and Simplify.” We often put so much pressure on ourselves and others to reach lofty, sometimes unreasonable goals. We complicate our lives with busy schedules, big ideas, and unrealistic expectations. Starting now, we’re creating an environment where imperfections and happy mistakes are tolerated and even welcomed.
The Path to Imperfection
Start by clearing out any unnecessary clutter in your life - literally. Your living space directly reflects the life you are living.
Are your shelves filled with books you’ll never read again, outdated decor that no longer brings you joy or documents you’ve been meaning to go through since last year’s “spring cleaning” effort?
Take on a minimalistic mindset and only keep objects that bring you joy when you see them. Simple is better so having products and decor around you that you truly enjoy will create a fresh outlook on life. What a perfect reminder to take a step back and relax.
Replace the clutter in your house with some glowing ball candles to represent this newfound light and airy attitude you’ve taken on.
Be mindful of the colors you choose. White is associated with light, goodness, and purity. Blue represents tranquility, wisdom, and confidence. Green encourages growth, harmony, and freshness. Place them in high-traffic areas of your home so you can be reminded often of what they represent.
At Creative Candles, we incorporate our relax and simplify mentality to all of the products that we create. Because our products are handcrafted by artisans rather than mass-produced from an assembly line of machines, each candle is thoughtfully and deliberately made. Each candle has its own unique character and personality.
Our team of artisans enjoys creating these candles. We hope their positive energy is carried into your home when you burn our candles.
Not everything has to be “perfect”. In fact, maybe perfect is not what we should aim for at all.
