Life isn’t perfect —which is a relief. It means we can stop pretending it is, we can stop wasting too much time forcing it to be; perfect hair, perfect house, perfect partner, perfect finances, perfect job, perfect cup of coffee. In fact, to embrace imperfections is to go with the flow, to be in accord with life. It allows us to accept that we spilled ketchup on our shirt at lunch, haven’t found a solution to our toe nail fungus problem, didn’t say the perfect thing to the grieving person, lied to the beggar about spare change, failed my diet with the indulgence of donuts, bacon, potato chips, and cola. It’s ok.
