The Art of Imperfection

I had forgotten this concept we learned in AP Literature. John Steinbeck describes that accepting imperfection is an essential part of human life. Once we admit that we don't have to be perfect, it enables us to love ourselves and to "be good". It is only in striving for perfection that we set ourselves up to fail, and continue the circular process of self-loathing. I've been exploring the art of learning to let it all go...and it feels pretty good :)
