    Beautiful…!!! Striving for perfection is a useless & frustrating experience. We should only strive to be the best possible at whatever we are attempting, so that whatever the result, we know we gave it our best. We don’t have to spend time on “What if I had put in more effort?”, or “Maybe I should have tried harder…”. All a wasted exercise…
    But trying to be perfect…. Well that’s a No Win situation…. It will oly end in us getting discouraged and jaded with life…

    After all we are Human not God!!!

    Thanks for the comment Wendy. I agree with the sentiment that we should strive for excellence not perfection. The goals we should strive for should be reachable goals not impossible to reach!
