“As long as we are on the quest to be perfect, to fit some arbitrary image of the ideal person, we’ll be stuck. Think hamster on a wheel, stuck. We’ll be moving fast, sure. We’ll be busy, busy, busy, and we can even convince ourselves that we’re super-important, but we won’t be getting anywhere and we certainly won’t be growing into our best selves.
The practice of imperfection is about living well with all of your qualities – your strengths and talents, your flaws and failings. It’s about working with the success in your life and with the places where you don’t have it all figured out. When we recognize the limits of perfection, we become more comfortable with our less-than perfect behaviors. Living from this place of imperfection, then, becomes a power position, the path to wholeness.”
Polly Campbell, in “Imperfect Spirituality”
