Perfect weather, soft romantic music, long drive, candle light dinner, a bottle of champagne - ideal date right?? but how many of us have gone through such ideal situations in life all the time? I am sure not even 80% of our lives has such ideal scenarios,but still we crave for them all the time and feel bad for not having such perfect,classy moments .. Of course who doesnt like picture perfect things, but at the same time we also have to live with the imperfections around us and enjoy them. Gold cannot be 100% pure and people cannot be perfect!!
I think all of us, from childhood have been taught to be perfect in all aspects. Be it getting A+ grades in studies, extra curricular activities, table manners, dressing sense etc. A girl is always taught to be a perfect bahu and she ought to develop all the characteristics in herself even. we are so mentally forced to believe that in order to keep people around us happy and contended, we have to be perfect. Post marriage, there is so much pressure on every girl to make that 'ideal bahu' impression in everyone's minds. I mean we ourselves want to be in good books of everyone. But at times i feel who are you to judge my life??, I know I am not perfect an I dont live to be, but before you start pointing fingers,,make sure your hands are clean!! Even the best needles are not sharp at both ends.
Big deal if one day our house is not neat as it should be, if once the curry is little less spicy, if you are looking less pretty than usual, if the score was 97 instead of 99. By striving to be perfect, we are raising our expectations. Everytime then we will want the same results and if not, we will be disappointed. Why do we have this Perfection ka "keeda" ??? I know i am sounding like a hypocrite now. I myself will want everything to be perfect around me coz i am brought up in such a way. But if for once things are not the way i wanted them to be or little less than perfect, i don't get hyper. Its okay, God also needs rest some times!! ;)
There are two kinds of perfect: The one you can never achieve, and the other, by just being yourself. Like if I talk about me n my husband, in the journey of life, We are being driven by a universal force to the same destination. And along our journey, we sometimes bump into each other, we cross paths, we become altered... But at all times we too are 100% perfectly imperfect. At every given moment we are absolutely perfect for what is required for our journey.May be in some aspects, I’m not perfect for you and you’re not perfect for me.But at the end of the day, We’re heading to the same place, though taking different routes, we’re both exactly perfect the way we are. No matter how much we crib and complain,both of us have accepted our imperfectly perfect nature!! How strong our all relationships would be if we could see and respect that we are all perfectly imperfect for our journey called LIFE!!
So next time if your desert is little less sweet, don't worry, just add your sweet smile to it and it will melt in your - in- laws mouth!! I Hope after reading this Mr. Hubby does not start taking me for granted and develop his "Chalta hai" attitude.. coz I am quite PERFECT in getting furios and the repercussions later on!! ;)
I read these beautiful lines somewhere-
"Ring the bells that still can ring, forget the perfect offering,
there is a crack in everything, thats how the light gets in!!! "
