Are you chasing perfection?

Bob Marley was once asked if there was a perfect woman. And he replied…who cares about perfection.

-Even the moon is not perfect, it is full of craters.

What about the sea? Very beautiful, but very salty and dark in the depths.

And what about heaven? Always so infinite, that is, the most beautiful things are not perfect, they are special and every woman, every man and every human being chooses who is special in his life.

Stop trying to be “perfect.” Better try to be free and live doing what you like, without trying to please others.

Those were his words and these words alone describe a journey of “becoming.” It is words like these that we have to live through, each on our own, each with our own experiences, trials, errors and hopefully successes. It’s unlearning the standards of society and what we’ve been taught all of our lives. When it comes to beauty and perfection there is a certain label that fits the bill. A label every human being has seen, a label that has caused anxiety and problems with self acceptance. But his words rings true and if we can unlearn those standards, accept ourselves and love ourselves unconditionally, we indeed shall be free.


We are the co-creators of our life and the time is now. More than ever are we needed to support Mother Earth and each other. Together we discover and explore our unique gifts in times of strengths, in times we lean on each other, and in times when we learn from each other. This blog started as an outlet and what I ultimately called my “Warriors Journey.” It was a way to document the ups and downs of my life, sharing my hardships as well as my successes. It showcased the struggles, but more important the ways of how to overcome them. Although we are warriors each and every day, I realized that having to be a warrior, comes from a place of pain. I decided to rename this blog, and “Phoenix Rising” now stands for the story of overcoming such a painful place. My motivation for this blog hasn’t changed and I hope to share inspiration and hope, to create a sense of belonging, a space of being heard, and connecting with like minded beings who instill a sense of oneness. We are never alone, and we are unstoppable in the pursuit of what sets our soul on fire. Who I am in a nutshell... 
I am an energy healer and Reiki Master. I am surviving a chronic disease that I’ve sent into remission three times since my initial bout, 15 years ago. I continuously challenge the status quo and by doing so I change my stars. I am a believer that anything is possible. I am a hopeless romantic and I believe that true love exists on various levels. I am an optimist that will always see the glass as half full. I am a dreamer, believing in endless possibilities. Not even the sky is the limit. I have jumped off of the hamster wheel, and I am writing a new chapter. I am chasing my Nirvana to support my most authentic self. This is my story, I am that Phoenix and I am rising from the ashes. Namaste 🙏🏼💙🦋

  1. A beautiful post indeed Rhapsody. This world buries us in so many expectations. We just have to stop judging ourselves within that, and we will ‘let go’ those many expectations that we hold. A long journey but a beautiful one when we finally see that truth within us…it is just through our fears, that expectation choking our hearts. But once understood we will breathe ‘love’ again 😀❤️🙏🏽
