Perfection The Daily Prompt
This is for the writers, the people constantly seeking inspiration and bursts of ideas; basically, it’s for everyone. I’m sure everyone needs bits of inspiration here and there, and I’m sure everyone waits for ideas. Do these ideas have to be perfect? Have you noticed that two snowflakes are never identical? If they were, it would be boring, just the same pattern over and over again. In other words, perfection is boring. Being different is what makes us who we are, a world full of perfect people might sound lovely, but in reality, it’d be horrible.
When it comes to writing, I like to acknowledge this saying by Margaret Atwood: “If I waited for perfection, I would never write a word.” My writing comes from my far-from-perfect experiences. My problems make me who I am. Rather than striving for perfection in the various areas of my life, I strive for greatness and excellence. On your search for perfection, you’ll stumble across some bouts of excellence and greatness I advise you to stick with. If you spend your whole life searching for perfection, you won’t have a life. Perfection is unattainable, for humans, that is. In my opinion, the only thing that is perfect in this world is God, and even He made us different and unique. Don’t try to be God, try to be yourself.
PERFECT: a seven letter word which should not exist because it is not real (for humans).
