Imperfect Beings

“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” ~Rumi

As the sun sets on another day, we are aware that we are imperfect beings living in an imperfect world. Each day is a new chance, a new beginning, not to be perfect, but to be better than we were before.

We should all be gentle with ourselves. After all, we are on a journey to learn, and learning takes time and has many pitfalls along the way.

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” ~ Lao Tzu

We humans may never get to enlightenment, but we can get closer every day.

  1. Hi, Michele. What you say is very true. Each day is another opportunity to become a better person, toward others and toward ourselves.
