The pursuit of perfection is a waste of time. Nothing will ever be perfect.
The faster that we realize this, the easier life becomes. I'm guilty of letting imperfect circumstances ruin my outlook on life.
I focused so much on what is wrong, that I missed opportunties for growth.
I decided to change that recently. Instead of saying...I don't like this situation. I now ask "what can I gain from this"? "How can I use this imperfect circumstance to my advantage"? All it took was a change of perspective and mental practice in thinking this way.
Instead of fighting the waves of imperfection, I now let it wash over me. I drench myself in it, and accept that this is my life.
And in accepting my imperfect life, I began to see that broken down into tiny segments there are perfect moments, ready to be cherished and stored away in my memory. And those perfect moments will be there for later consumption, when I find myself aimlessly searching for perfection again.
