The sin of perfectionism

Sin – to miss the mark.  Perfection – absolutely complete; to make (something) completely free from faults or defects; make as good as possible.

You miss the mark in life if you believe the point is to be completely free of faults and defects. Your human experience is forever changing, evolving, and becoming more, out of the experiences of your past and your unique make-up. You are never going to be flawless or without faults from someone’s point of view. This is also true of everything you or someone else does. There will always be room for improvement or something that could have been done better. But the point isn’t to make it perfect! The point is to see yourself, others and everything you do as meaningful, rich, beautiful, and worthy of your time and attention. Otherwise, you are so busy seeking perfection that you miss what’s really going on. And missing the joy of life might be the only sin there actually is.
