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.
