You Are Not Perfect

Good morning beautiful W3,

I went looking for this because I needed it this morning. I had a chant running through my head for the past day or two …

“I am NOT a robot. I am not a robot!”

What does that mean?

There are going to be days that start out later than others. That are slower than others. That are less “productive” than others.

There are going to be days I don’t want to talk. Don’t even want to listen actually.

There are going to be “mistakes.” There are going to be things that go “wrong”, despite our best efforts.  There are going to be days our hearts just hurt, and we need space to rest our soul for minute.

I am NOT a robot. That means I am not perfect. I am not 100% predictable, consistent, or ‘right’.

Nope. I’m wild and wise, and that means something else entirely.  I needed to re-read this today, and I thought maybe … you needed it too. I added a few lines here and there … 😉

Wild and Wise Women

are not perfect.

Nor do we wish to be.


We have made “mistakes.”

We will make more.


We have taken risks that, from the

outside, appear to have not paid off.

But we know, there’s much more

then what things ‘appear’ to be.


We have chosen the road less

travelled, and at times ‘seem’ to be lost.

We are not lost.

We are wandering and exploring

and as a result will find that which we seek.


We have veered left when the whole

world went right, and would rather

walk alone than follow

…  just to follow.

We have misbehaved. 

We will again.

We have dared. 

It’s in our blood.

We have made others uncomfortable

and we have stood our ground.

We have been “wrong”.

We have been “right”.

We have changed our minds and

we have started over.

More than once.

And likely, we will again.


We have gone back to the

drawing board.

We have loved badly and brilliantly.

And know now that this is our

true purpose here.


We have worn our hearts on our

sleeves and we have had

our heart broken.

We survived.


We have misunderstood and

BEEN misunderstood.

We have been mad and

we have fought back.

We have “thrown the first punch”.

Wild and Wise Women have felt

all the feelings of the rainbow and

refuse to apologize for it.

We have said “I’m sorry” with our

whole hearts and we have forgiven.

We have even forgotten – because it

allows US to move on.

Wild and Wise Women can be

judged harshly


We get back

up and hold our heads high.


THIS is a call to our Wild and Wise sisterhood.

An anthem that I hope you hear again

and again that reminds you

that together

we are stronger.

This is a Wild and Wise tribute

that honors the



the imperfections,

the heartbreak and

battle scars, for without them –

we could not possibly become

that which we are.


Wild and Wise.

This is a plea to encircle our sisters,

in all of our best and worst moments.

An invitation to celebrate this


moment for the blessing,

the teaching,

the learning, the experience

that it is.

THIS is a battle cry.

A surrender.

A lullaby.

A chant. 

Wild and Wise Women EVERYWHERE

YOU are loved.

You ARE loved.

Say it with me now W3 ~ You Are LOVED.

PS. Beautiful W3. May these words bring you everything you need today.
