When I was a little girl, I wanted to learn everything. Well, no doubts I still do, but back then, I wanted to learn everything straight away.
I wanted to draw a perfect portrait at my first drawing class, I wanted to learn how to play drums at my first music class, I wanted to cook great food at my first attempt. I’ve always wanted to do it right the first time. Always.
I guess that’s why they say –
A child’s innocence is because they are still pure
A child’s innocence is because they have been unchallenged for sure
It’s nice how on one side I wanted to do everything with perfection and on the other, I was only interested in the outcomes.
The struggles and the efforts of the process were not appreciated by me and made me quit things and jump on to other things.
But later in life, I realized one thing which we all eventually do. Even if we try to ignore, it will not be unknown for prolonging that “Imperfection is everywhere.”
We are not perfect in any way. Our thoughts, our deeds, our house, our relationships. Nothing. Even life itself isn’t perfect, then how can we.
Life itself by being imperfect teaches us to find freedom, contentment within our imperfections, and live happily.
This means we can skip chasing the perfect things, the perfect people, and the perfect physique in our lives and improve the things we already own and embrace our imperfections. And when we do so, we’ll save ourselves from an unhappy life, a life free from a plethora of expectations, a life where we can learn to grow to accept the efforts and the struggles of the process, grow hope and faith, and teach ourselves to look for the good in everything and everyone.
“Imperfection is in some sort essential to all that we know in life.”
~ John Ruskin
