I think perfection is one of the worst things ever. For one, it is not realistic. Being hung up on achieving it has cost countless people countless hours and countless heartache in the struggle.
It looks as though it is a theme in my writing. I did a search on “perfect” here on the blog and this is what I came up with:
- Ep 4 – Perfection is just scared to fail
- 15 Seconds of Real – calling out all you perfectionists. #nofear
Those are just in the past few months.
Don’t get me wrong… I think that anything worth doing is worth doing well. I am just of the belief that perfection is a cruel temptress that can never be reached. We are human – we don’t do perfect.
This has to be one of my favorite sayings. We are here to learn. We are here to grow. We are here to improve. We are not here to be perfect.
The only perfection you should attempt is to be the perfect you. And you know what? You already have that one conquered.
What is your view of perfection?
