As I was going through my meditation routine, clearing out my mind, so to speak, I ran across a statement that really caught my attention.

“So much effort goes into trying to be perfect. But how much more attractive are vulnerability and imperfection?”

This made me realize that we strive to be something that we were never meant to be. Our vulnerabilities and imperfections are what make us who we are. They make us unique and special.

If we all were perfect or achieved perfection, life would be meaningless, and our individuality would vanish. That doesn’t sound like a world I want to live in. Our capacity to help others makes us human. It also makes us unique and special.

  1. LOL — in any case both “terrible” and “awful” seem better than “mediocre”! 😉
