In the pursuit of perfection, I tend to overlook the finer things. |
It took me a very long time and a couple of painful lessons to understand that... that perfection is not about having the perfect shave, or the perfect work, or even a perfect family. It is about accepting the imperfection; to peer beyond the shell of the individual and realize the pearl that lies deep within, to embrace imperfection as a part of us, to accept the scars as marks of lessons and not stains to bleach off; THAT is what makes us complete. That is what makes us truly perfect.
I still tidy up my table when I leave office. I still scout for the best gadgets. I still clean the microscopic stain off my Sony 17inch Trinitron monitor, but something has changed now. I have learned to accept the beauty of imperfection... and I learned to accept myself.
