Life is the Opposite of Perfection

Life is not about perfection. It’s about having experiences. It’s about finding out what we like and what we don’t like. It’s not about being the best in everything. None of us are meant to be perfect. Sure, they will always be someone that is the best at something. But, that’s just the nature of things. One person is the best at a particular thing and one person is the worst at that thing. The rest of us fall in between.

Wouldn’t it be boring if everyone was perfect? The world would be bland. Our lives would lack contrast and excitement.

I think it’s important to figure out how, by whatever means possible, to relax about things; not take the world and our lives so seriously. All the time we spend fretting about being perfect regarding something, we could be enjoying almost anything else.

I play the guitar and I take photographs. Will I ever be the best at either of them? Probably not. Do I care? Absolutely not. I do them because I love to play music and I love to take photographs. That’s the only reason. Does it feel great when I hit a near perfect note on the guitar or take a fabulous photograph? Most definitely. But even when I don’t sound quite right on the guitar or don’t take great photos on a shoot, I still love doing them.

That’s the only reason we should do anything because we enjoy doing it. All other reasons are a bunch of noise and should not get in the way of having fun and enjoying the things you like.

Chill out!! Enjoy your passions and your desires. Stop worrying about being the best. Go have some fun instead. That’s a order. :-)
