It is strange but true that we are perfectly imperfect...
Gold cannot be pure, and people cannot be perfect.
I cling to my imperfection, as the very essence of my being.
Have no fear of perfection - you'll never reach it.
Does everything you do have to be perfect? How much does it bother you when things go well but did not happen in the ideal fashion that you envisioned? If you hate mistakes and never seem to be satisfied with "good" or even "great," you are probably struggling with perfectionism. While having high standards is wonderful and being motivated to improve is admirable, longing for perfection can lead to an unhealthy self-esteem and can damage relationships. You can turn a perfectionist attitude into positive energy if you set your mind to being perfectly imperfect.
Life is not meant to be perfect, but it is meant to be good. The definition of excellence is "extremely good" or "outstanding." When you wrestle with perfectionism, even excellence falls short of your standards. The first step in being perfectly imperfect is learning to appreciate and celebrate what is excellent or simply good. Enjoy having done well without dwelling on what could have been better.
Everyone has their ideals. It is good to have a clear image of exactly what you want and to strive after that image. It is important, however, to consider reality. This is not to say that you should lower your standards or stop trying to achieve as much as you can, but what this means is that you need to set goals that are realistic. It might be painful to take a hard look at your weaknesses and flaws, but they are a part of reality. Rather than stubbornly determine to go after an impossible goal, get to know, and accept, yourself and start small.
Work hard and do your best. You may actually find that you will be happier and more successful if you can appreciate the "work in progress" status of your life.
Hi my name is Keith Sarah. I am perfectly imperfect, and I have learned to accept it.
I reblog a lot of random things.
