My perfect day is made up of
hundreds of imperfect moments.
Each one is amazing and magical
and yet not perfect.
You see, this day isn’t just a collection
of hundreds of imperfect moments
but rather a unique composition
that makes today perfect.
It’s a realisation and an understanding
that goes beyond the individual pieces
of each day and pulls together a picture
that is perfection in itself.
I go beyond a ‘sum of the parts’ valuation.
I look beyond the moments and activities
and realise just what is happening
with me, within me and around me.
Perfect happiness exists in each of us
in all of those imperfect, day to day interactions
and unique moments that characterise
who and what we are.
PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT EXERCISE
1. Write down some of the imperfect moments of your day - taking today or yesterday as your case study. Why was each of these moments imperfect?
2. Now, 'flip' each of these and ask what was the 'unique moment' in each interaction or activity for you?
3. How do you look back on this day in its entirety?
