Jalpa’s Musings: Nobody Is Perfect

imperfections

I have so many thoughts (ALL THE TIME), I thought it would be good for me to start writing them down. I figured I’d blog about my crazy thoughts as well. Why not? It may be therapeutic for me. It’s also a great way to share my “musings” to the world, and I figured maybe somebody out there would read it and totally get what I’m trying to say.

This one will be focused on perfection. I actually hate that word. What does that even mean? According to Merriam-Webster, the simple definition is “having no mistakes or flaws.” Huh?

I’m sitting here scratching my head like, “Who the hell never makes mistakes or has zero flaws?” My entire life, I have never met a person like this. Have you?

Personally, I kinda like the fact that we’re all imperfect in our own unique way. Trust, me we all are…including you! I know I’ve got a long way to go if I’m trying to reach “perfection.” (By the way, I’m not…I’m just trying to be the best human being I can be in the short time I have on earth).

What are my imperfections? Well, I’m completely unorganized; I can be a bit untidy (to put it mildly); I sometimes (ok, many times) let my emotions control me; I can be a bit obsessive; I would probably diagnose myself to be borderline bipolar. These are just few I’m mentioning.

So my point is, if we all have our “flaws,” why don’t we accept each other for our special “imperfections?” I just found out that Paralympics has been going on all week in Rio. There’s been hardly any coverage on it! Do you know these guys train just as hard? I don’t understand. I know I’d be glued to my TV in awe at some of the competitions.

It’s all very simple really. Just accept one another for who we are…love and support each other for our “imperfections.” Personally, I like to think of us all as unique. How many of you actually go out of your way to get to know somebody who may be “different” than you? Actually, how many of you would ask them on a date? Embrace our individuality and our diversities. Make that extra effort to get to know and understand somebody who’s not like you. You never know what you may learn. Hey, they may become your new best friend.

Okay, that’s enough of my musings for now. I would love to hear your thoughts. Until next time, friends…

When asked what inspired her to write her debut novel, Chaysing Dreams, Williby answers simply, “Because I have a story to share.”
