As great as it is to be comfortable, Life does its best work in us in times of discomfort and challenges. It is the best way to shape us into the potential we’ve only ever dreamt of.
Are you waiting for the perfect moment to finally enjoy your life? The disease of perfection will rob you of life’s perfectly imperfect moments while promising that one day in the future, you will be “perfectly happy”. What happens when that day never comes? Or worse, it does come and you realize that it’s riddled with its own set of challenges, thereby rendering that very moment you’ve waited for imperfect? The time to live is now. It will always be now. Because if not now, then when?
We don’t have to dig that deep to discover the true character of others. The truth is never that far from the surface; we just have to pay attention.
