What Are You Willing to Do Imperfectly?

per·fect/ˈpɜr fɪkt; pərˈfɛkt/ adjective 1. Conforming absolutely to the description or definition of an ideal type.

2. Entirely without any flaws, defects, or shortcomings.

Hmm. Upon examining the definition of perfection, perfection sounds pretty awful to me. If I were perfect, I'd be inhuman (because humans by nature have flaws and shortcomings), and I'd be contorting myself to fit some ideal type or way.

But imperfect...well, imperfect seems like it has some major advantages, actually.

Being imperfect, I get to be myself. I get to admit when I'm wrong. I get to TAKE ACTION; if I waited until I could be perfect to make a move, I'd never make a move at all. I get to show up more authentically in my acting craft, because actors portray human beings, and human beings are imperfect. I get to love every part of myself, because I don't have to wait until I'm "perfect" (an unattainable ideal) to feel good about me. I get to live my dreams, because in real live, dreams come true imperfectly.

I'm willing to sing, act, write, love myself, love my fiance, support other people, and live imperfectly.
