Perfection the word that breeds dread into every heart that hears, it gives the thought to some unattainable unflawed state of being. Is it possible to be perfect and is it necessary ? I have been thinking allot about the definition of perfection in the modern society in which we live, the push to be the ne plus ultra. Every where I look I see people striving to be perfect in there human way, and everything is pushing people to be perfect, it makes me sad to see people trying to push them selfs into a mold made by someone els all for the sake of trying to be liked more. Isn't that the reason for perfection ? or am I wrong. now that doesn't mean I don't strive for perfection, but I find my self getting obsessed with that and lose the exhilaration of that first step into some creative endeavor, or get giant feelings of inferiority when I compare with someone els, I wish this world in which we live didn't push so hard for perfection, but more for the best, when I say this I mean the best that you as an individual can do. I find that when I focus more in doing my best even if it doesn't fall into the category of perfection I enjoy what I am doing at that moment and I enjoy where I at in this time in my life. I know its very important to try our hardest to give all we have and to make an effort, but its very foolish to not want to try just for fear of not being perfect and falling short of either our expectations or someone else's, I find this is my trouble sometimes, and I must ask my self isn't it worse to fail by not doing something just because I was afraid to fail in the first place ? I hope I'm making sense, I guess what I'm trying to say short and plain is don't try to be perfect just be the best you can be in every area of your life, don't let the fear of imperfection inhibit you from your dreams and goals, because imperfection is beauty when we remember we have a Father in heaven who Loves us even with all our imperfections. Now if I could only remember this one all the time.
I would love to know your thoughts on the subject of perfection.
