What’s Perfection Any Old Way?

Perfect. The word stands alone for meaning something that seems so unattainable in the broader sense of things. Of course as individuals it’s often easy to have our own version of perfection in life. To make our own guidelines to what makes something so ‘perfect’ in our eyes. Unfortunately, sometimes we strive so hard for that level of perfection that we refuse to allow the natural course of trial and error to enter willingly in our lives. That refusal can only cause more error in the long haul as inevitably, it’s completely unavoidable. We all make mistakes and we all must either choose whether or not we learn from them as we go along. It’s not always easy to swallow these potential mistakes, but it’s something all humans have in common – whether one wants to admit that or not. I personally have sat down so many times within the last week wanting to write up the “perfect” first entry for this new website of mine. I wanted to broadcast this awe inspiring clear message of revelations, reflections and readiness. A how I got to this point in my life and why writing is so important to me type of tale. Unfortunately, I have come to the conclusion it is best to swallow down my prideful moment and accept that any readers I may attain on this journey of mine may not always get “perfection” from me. I am human after all – and though I have been writing for many years now, I still make plenty of mistakes.
