It takes courage to be imperfect. When we are willing to be wrong and let others know we are wrong the doors of opportunity swing wide. Opportunities to see ourselves and others from the other side of right.
The older I get the more stuffy right people seem and we all know how nauseating they can be. Sometimes I think we forget we are human which by sheer definition is not perfection. To be human we do not have to be right or perfect. Being human means we can be wonderfully imperfect in so many ways. The most important criteria for our humanity is that we connect with others, contribute to the greater good and exercise compassion because everyone has the right to be happy and be helped to overcome suffering.
Humans make mistakes and we have faults and we don’t have to be better than anyone else because as imperfect as we are … we are good enough.
This month I am participating in the A-Z Challenge as well as following and commenting on the blogs of others. Our posts relate to each letter of the alphabet – one letter a day for six days throughout April. My theme during this challenge is that of values – both lived and elements that add value to life. You can find out more about the challenge here.
