The Illusion of Perfection:

<

h3>Has anyone in your life ever really truly expected perfection? What exactly is perfection? Does it even exist? How do we measure it? We can measure Excellence. We can measure performance & effort. We can we even measure or judge something as perfect? We are human after all.

h3>Good morning everybody, I hope y’all are having a great day, I’m a little late to work but hey-no one’s perfect right? Well just the same, todays Daily Kickstand is about just that so let’s get into it then. Here we go, and I hope you all do something amazing and inspiring today, but if you opt to just stay in bed and sleep the day away I guess that works too.

Perfection in most cases is subjective, or arbitrary. True, we may have a perfect record in wins/losses or perfect score or perfect attendance but is that really perfection? Or is that just doing what we set out to do? I don’t think perfection in a human measurement exists. In theory the moment we begin to judge something, it loses its luster. The moment we classify a thing, or person, or place we cheapen its essence by judging it. It is only perfect at that moment when it enters our vision but before our brain begins to analyze it. Once it has been broken apart & classified by our mind, it no longer can remain pure & perfect as we inevitably look for it’s imperfections. It’s not our fault, Because as we observe the flower we begin to notice things about it that aren’t to our liking. Perhaps it’s not symmetrical on either side. Or maybe the edges are starting to wither and turn color. The longer we stand there and look the less perfect something becomes because our minds continuously now, look for other flaws. The act of our observing the flower has taken it from perfect despite its natural flaws, to a dying rose of yesterday. 

When we, as people, are in relationships there is evidence of the same sad depreciation. Think of the honeymoon phase, you know the beginning when everything is “perfect”. Well, what happens after a few months typically? Did this amazing man/woman suddenly grow a laundry list of faults? Or did we finally begin to observe them more closely and began noticing the small imperfections that make us each unique. As we notice those imperfections, we become more cthings that bug us begin to become more than minor annoyances. So what do we do then? We become even more critical of them. Which returns to the beginning of the downward spiral.

People we are all much the same as that rose. We are all innately perfect the way the Universe intended us to be, despite flaws. So then, why is it were so quick to judge each other for every flaw? We know damn well that we’re not ourselves subjectively perfect, then who are we to criticize someone else’s shortfalls. We are perfectly enough for the right heart, and as long as we love openly and honestly, there’s a market for each of us.

We all make mistakes, we all have issues, we all have things we want to change about ourselves, and so we need to be tolerant of each other’s flaws and know that we are all perfect in the eyes of the Universe.  We are all made of the same components of the Universe. The same stardust that formed me is in you. So we’re not that different. We are all deserving of love, and we all have the right to be free to express our differences. The trick then, is finding the right heart to love us back. Don’t give up on someone just for petty imperfections. Accept everyone as perfectly flawed and come from love. Live with love. Believe in love. Be you. Be beautiful. Be blissfully blessed. And please….Be kind to each other’s hearts- we’re all fragile!

  1. Hey Kevin!!
    A good post !! Perfection is something undefined. Perfection is more about Perception. I believe everybody is unique in this world. Yes, sometimes it’s possible to get a bunch of our desired qualities in a person but at the same time certainly that person must be possessing some of our undesired qualities also. So perfection has no set definition!!
    Have a great time!! Keep enlightening us with your posts!!
