Seems like lots of folk need this these days...

I wrote this recently for someone I love. It might not be unique or original, I don't know. But it was important enough to articulate in a simple, effective way, as you see here.

Perfection.

It seems we're always striving for it.

But it doesn't exist. There is no such thing as perfection.

Except...

There is one thing we can count on to be perfect:

Imperfection.

Imperfection is the only perfect thing.

Imperfection is perfect, in that it is the absence of perfection.

Therefore, if something has the slightest imperfection, it is perfectly imperfect.

And since we can only all be imperfect...

In our imperfections...

We are perfect.
