[1: 1,959 of 10,000] Loving Even The Imperfection

In Journal on December 5, 2018 at 8:20 PM

I have a new appreciation for not living aiming for perfection and efficiency inspired by the podcast of Rob Bell, The RobCast, Episode 220. I always have the desire to achieve the best works, which means it has the ingredients of being perfect from conceptualization, development, and completion. I do pressure myself of always pursuing perfection.

Yet what I heard/grasp from the sermon (digitally delivered) is imperfection is as beautiful as the perfect one because it was meant to happened that way. It makes more sense when I add it with what I’ve always believed, “everything happens for a reason and nothing is ever wasted,” and this includes all the problems that are often hard and ugly including the memories that I have the habit of escaping and intentionally forgetting to avoid reliving the pain.

Everything is interconnected and one incident leads to another. Nothing is ever a mistake but a wall leads to a detour, another adventure, or to prove to oneself how much something is wanted that I’ll exert all strength that I have to break the wall. It helps that I often lean to optimism when talking about disheartening situations, but now with the new found appreciation, I found a kind of peace and surrender of what is.

[1: 1,895 of 10,000] A Perfect World?

In Question on September 17, 2017 at 12:47 AM

When my mind is clouded I long for a perfect world where all I could feel is peace, happiness, and without pain.

When I heard Peter Rollins spoke about having a perfect world is actually not perfect, because it is going to be boring, and a part of me protested.

Now that I feel so contented, fearlessly caged in my cocoon, then I understood that growth can only happen in suffering, only in enduring pain that I will see an actual progress, otherwise I will ask, “Is this all there is?” The answer is it is not, it can’t be; but it will require my courage to face adversity, it will require my sweat, blood, and tears to leap up, and although it is not going to be easy it will definitely be worth it.

[1: 1,788 of 10,000] My AHA Moment Is Obvious But It Sticks

In Article on October 31, 2016 at 12:01 AM

AHA moments are those special jolts that all of a sudden a miraculous answer comes to life. I just got that special AHA that gave me the inspiration to make me live forward with positivity, that push to act without fear but to only feel peace and joy.

I was walking at the mall and for an instant I received a message that says, “Not everything needs to be perfect!” It gave me such a huge relief that I was able to hop instead of walk, breathe easily and happily, and I was able to forgive myself that I am always doing the best that I can.


The pressure that I have put myself was incredible. I was aiming to achieve perfection and beauty in everything that I do that I start losing to have fun but instead burying myself with frustrations even before they even happen.

For the first time in a long time, I am able to chill, truly laugh, and looking forward in waking up tomorrow without the thought of wanting to end my life thinking I am worth nothing because there is nothing perfect that I can contribute in this world. I have set my standard so high that I could no longer reach them and signed up myself for failure.

I am not saying I am cool with mediocrity but I am giving myself the room to forgive myself when I fall off, when I don’t please everyone, and it’s all right. I grow better each time and my development is beautiful, my journey is glistening with pride, and as long as I am breathing I am meant for something great.

There is always a way to do things elegantly from sipping a cup of tea, going down the stairs, or picking up things.

When no one is looking or so I thought, I try to be more carefree, lazy, and act without definite calculation.

It is pleasant to be elegant, not only to my self’s benefit but for others around you.

Elegance is about perfection and an admirable sight. It means I have given my best in such finesse.

[1: 1,286 of 10,000] Perfection vs. Mediocre

In Article on January 29, 2014 at 2:00 PM

Is not accomplishing perfection our only excuse to become mediocre?

Is mediocre better than never beginning at all?

Is it only a fault when we stop doing?

Is it not a fault too when we keep doing without proper contemplation?

Is it balance the true answer to set it moving forward?


Perfection has different definitions. It depends on who is defining it and the most important definition is OURS. We know how to set the standard where we know we can do much better, we can push more, and we can exhaust more possibilities. I don’t agree that perfection is boring because if we truly want to achieve it, it entails a great deal of effort, almost making us crazy, until it reaches the point that it can no longer be more than what it is because it achieved epic-ness!

No one remembers mediocre and every single human being is so unique and awesome that it isn’t possible not to “reach” PERFECTION!
