Perfection is a word that I hate but love at the same time.
The part that I hate is when it's used as a measure of success. Mainly because PERFECTION doesn't exist and you are settling yourself up for failure by trying to attain it. Take a look at the definition: the condition, state, or quality of being free or as free as possible from all flaws or defects. Now if start thinking of the areas that you are striving for it...I want you to also think of if you succeeded. Normally the usual reaction was...."Damn, I was so close". This is when it leads you down a never ending hole with no answers.
The part that I love about the word is when it's used from a different perspective. It's like when you receive a new article of clothing and it's fitting just right. It could be because you lost weight or maybe you've learned to appreciate those extra curves and it no longer bothers you. Another common feeling is when you've just had a breakthrough about your life and you realize that you are you and no longer trying to be someone you're not. It's a breath of fresh air and just the feeling of being free with no chains or baggage holding you back. When you are in a position of your life where you focus on yourself and what you want opposed to trying to find solutions for everyone else's problem.
Life is all what you make it. A lot of time, you just have to change the lens you are viewing it from!
Until next time...Thank you for reading!
