Inspiration, strikes in the most unexpected places, and I can say that, having experienced it first hand.A few months back I came across, a very different kind of saying. Something, which struck me, as bizzare at first but later made sense. It all started in my French class. The professor, while explaining something, quoted a British author, who once said, "If a thing is worth doing, do it badly,"
This sentence, made me wonder, at how often in our bid to attain perfection, we lose out, on the things that really matter. Students, are behind the perfect score, artists are waiting, for the perfect masterpiece,people are behind the perfect glow or the perfect tan. This 'Perfection,' according to me is largely a subjective concept, because one person can find imperfections, in another person's 'so called perfect masterpiece'.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not against perfection, but sometimes, it's just best, to enjoy the process, rather than focus on the minute details, that make it up. In the end, you don't remember, what you did, but how you did it and how much fun you had while doing it.
Leaving you, with a beautiful quote which I came across in Jodi Picoult's book My Sister's Keeper.
We have synchronized our watches, studied our calendars, existed in minutes, and completely forgotten, to step back and see, what we have accomplished.
