The concept of perfection is a myth. Yet, it is something that many people keep striving to be and trying to obtain. Trying to be perfect is an unrealistic and unobtainable goal. What does it mean to be perfect? Can you really do everything exactly right, every time, all the time, without any mistakes or errors? Webster’s dictionary defines perfect as: having no mistakes or flaws, being completely correct or accurate, satisfying all requirements, and being entirely without flaws. I don’t know about you but, I have flaws, I make mistakes, and I am not correct 100% of the time. Everyone makes mistakes. We are not supposed to be perfect. We are supposed to strive to do our very best. To be our very best. The only person that was perfect and walked this earth was Jesus Christ. In my daily life, I strive to be more like Christ. Knowing that I am not perfect, that I am a person with flaws, and that there are areas I strive to change and other areas I am ok with.
I don’t know about you but, I love my flaws and imperfections. It is the cracks in a mural that tells a story. The crooked lines in a painting that gives it depth. The lines on a face around the mouth, that shows a person who knew how to smile and enjoyed life. The lines on a mother’s stomach, that shows she gave birth and life to another human being. The grays in the hair that demonstrates age, wisdom, and knowledge. Life would be so boring and dull if we were all perfect and did everything exactly the same. I don’t want to live in a world without flaws and imperfections. These things add character and tells a story. Just try to appreciate who you are while working towards bettering yourself. No one is perfect. So…stop trying to be perfect.
I Love Myself Flaws & All
