The Quest for Perfection

Response to the Positive Self-Talk Challenge has been nothing short of amazing.  We’ve loved seeing women step outside of their comfort zones and challenge their inner talk track…the same talk tracks we’d NEVER give life to in the real world.  We’d never speak to friends (or even our enemies) the way we sometimes talk to ourselves so we’ve challenged ourselves to STOP LISTENING to the negative we sometimes tell ourselves.

And for those reasons, we’ve decided to give the Positive Self-Talk Challenge a permanent home here at Slimpressions.  Knowing our mission is to help women feel good about themselves (whether our confidencewear is involved or not), we are thrilled to continue to fuel this movement.

We’re always inspired and energized when we hear this song “Perfect” by Pink and we thought it fitting (pun intended) to share the lyrics as part of the Positive Self-Talk Challenge. So many of us tend to beat ourselves up on our unachievable quest for perfection.   Here’s to a healthy quest for self-improvement.  (But please don’t think perfection is achievable, or even necessary.)  Pretty, pretty please….don’t you ever, ever think…you are less than perfect to anyone in THIS Slim Sisterhood.  We adore you for who you are underneath it all…

PERFECT (okay, this is the clean version 🙂 ) – by Pink

Made a wrong turn
Once or twice
Dug my way out
Blood and fire
Bad decisions
That’s alright
Welcome to my silly life
Mistreated, misplaced, missunderstood
Miss, no way it’s all good
It didn’t slow me down
Mistaken
Always second guessing
Underestimated
Look, I’m still around…

Pretty, pretty please
Don’t you ever, ever feel
Like you’re less than
less than perfect
Pretty, pretty please
If you ever, ever feel
Like you’re nothing
You are perfect to me

You’re so mean
When you talk
About yourself
You are wrong
Change the voices
In your head
Make them like you
Instead
So complicated
Look how big you’ll make it
Filled with so much hatred
Such a tired game
It’s enough
I’ve done all i can think of
Chased down all my demons
see you do the same

Pretty, pretty please
Don’t you ever, ever feel
Like you’re less than
less than perfect
Pretty, pretty please
If you ever, ever feel
Like you’re nothing
You are perfect to me

The whole world stares while I swallow the fear
The only thing i should be drinking is an ice cold beer
So cool in lying and we tried tried tried
But we try too hard, it’s a waste of my time
Done looking for the critics, cuz they’re everywhere
They don’t like my genes, they don’t get my hair
Strange ourselves and we do it all the time
Why do we do that?
Why do I do that?
Why do I do that?

Ooh, pretty pretty pretty,
Pretty pretty please don’t you ever ever feel
Like you’re less than
less than perfect
Pretty pretty please if you ever ever feel
Like you’re nothing
you are perfect to me
You’re perfect
You’re perfect to me
Pretty, pretty please if you ever ever feel
like you’re less than, less than perfect
Pretty, pretty please if you ever ever feel
like you’re nothing
you are perfect to me
