Perfection is overrated

by Khushboo on September 17, 2011

“Congratulations!  You’re not perfect!  It’s ridiculous to want to be perfect anyway.  But then, everybody’s ridiculous sometimes, except perfect people.  You know what perfect is?  Perfect is not eating or drinking or talking or moving a muscle or making even the teensiest mistake.  Perfect is never doing anything wrong – which means never doing anything at all.  Perfect is boring!  So you’re not perfect!  Wonderful!  Have fun!  Eat things that give you bad breath!  Trip over your own shoelaces!  Laugh!  Let somebody else laugh at you!  Perfect people never do any of those things.  All they do is sit around and sip weak tea and think about how perfect they are.  But they’re really not one-hundred-percent perfect anyway.  You should see them when they get the hiccups!  Phooey!  Who needs ‘em?  You can drink pickle juice and imitate gorillas and do silly dances and sing stupid songs and wear funny hats and be as imperfect as you please and still be a good person.  Good people are hard to find nowadays.  And they’re a lot more fun than perfect people any day of the week.”  ~Stephen Manes, Be a Perfect Person in Just Three Days!

A to the men!…Perfect is boring!  So is leading a ‘healthy’ lifestyle where you follow every ‘rule’ in the book.  Hop on to Sarah’s lovely blog to see  some of ways in which I stray from the stereotypical ‘healthy’ lifestyle!

Perfect is boring; agreed :) It’s our imperfections which make us fun, loveable, and relatable!

Love your perfection post!

I’m the SAME way with the diet soda and other imperfections such as junk food, ice cream for dinner, candy, not working out every day.

College makes it pretty tough to do everything though!
