When I saw this quote, it struck a special place in my heart.
As humans, so many times, we struggle for perfection. We aim to be perfect, but have we ever sat down to think that the more we desire perfection, the farther it becomes?
This is because Perfection Is Not Meant For Us!
We can all try to be perfect, but we will never achieve ultimate perfection. And that’s okay. All we need to do is TRY.
We are all bound to make mistakes As long as you are alive, sometimes we will succeed and other times, we will fail.
So why overwork yourself?
Don’t hide behind your mistakes; don’t try to cover them and pretend. Instead just laugh and keep moving as long as you’ve learnt the hard lesson from them.
If you stumble, make it part of the dance. Don’t stay on the floor; don’t remain immobile. Utilize the fall to your own advantage and make it count. We are all a work in progress and everybody stumbles from time to time; it’s how you respond to it that matters eventually.
Moreover, don’t let the fear of being imperfect stop you from doing the things you want to do; rather decide to do them imperfectly. In time, you will appreciate the first step you took.
Life changes every day, so make the most of the moment because you will never have it again. If you wait until the perfect moment, until everything is perfect before you move, you may wake up one day and your life would have passed you by.
What dance have you been longing to start?
Will you finally take the first step?
And for those of you who are already dancing, have you stumbled?
