Sometimes we give ourselves so much pressure as a consequence of wanting to achieve a state of perfection even when we know too well that there could not be existent any such utopian expectations as Flawless Perfection. We are sometimes caught in the rigidity, distress, unhappiness of wanting to be perfect that we forget the small sweet and ordinary things that make life worthwhile. The fact that you want to achieve great things does not mean expecting no faltering, no mistakes along the way, no hurdles…it means that you will fall and must be able to pull yourself up, you’ll be faced with hurdles that you must overcome and must take them as mere challenges.

Don’t be too hard on yourself; flexibility adaptability and simplicity are virtues to effective execution of plans in this uncertain environment.

No wonder Abraham Maslow advises that: “There are no perfect human beings! Persons can be found who are good, very good indeed, in fact, great. There do in fact exist creators, seers, sages, saints, shakers, and movers…even if they are uncommon and do not come by the dozen. And yet these very same people can at times be boring, irritating, petulant, selfish, angry, or depressed. To avoid disillusionment with human nature, we must first give up our illusions about it.”

Keep on keeping on. God bless the work of your hands.
