  1. Striving for perfection is great. I am not against that at all. In many of my posts I talk about EXCELLENCE. Constantly trying to improve is what life should be about. Expecting outside influences like the perfect job or perfect spouse to bring you happiness is what I think is misguided. Some people can have everything and be unhappy, while others can have nothing and still be very satisfied. Real happiness and personal safsttaciion can only come from within.

  2. I LOVE this! One of my favorite reminders is from an old hymn: “In the quiet heart is hidden sorrow that they eye can’t see.” And that combined with this line from The Little Prince “It is only with the heart that one can see rightly. What is essential is invisible to the eye.” These keep me from assuming, judging and reacting to people and keep me more in making compassionate assumptions about people. This is such a fantastic blog post. Thanks for sharing it.
