Perfect World

We've all heard the saying "Don't judge a book by its cover".... that's me!

There is so much history and mystery to my past that when I open up to a new friend, the expressions are always the same, "Wow, I never would have guessed"!

I love life, always have but it hasn't been easy. Not at all. I learned that it's not ever going to be "perfect" unless you re-define the word perfect! That is what I have done. Your "perfect" may not be my "perfect" and the great news is, THAT's okay!! I respect your perfect and only hope you respect mine. The secret to staying happy in my perfect world is I don't let your opinion of my "perfect" world effect me.

If you like my world, you are my friend. I love, inspire, encourage and cherish all my friends! We are unique in each of our own ways - I love originality ~ no blinders here!
I surround myself with like-minded souls and pray for the lost souls who bring pain and grief to others for their own comfort.

There is so much to life. I realize that even more when my heart and mind are open. All we know is what we know (what society has taught us) ~ I want to know what we don't know. I am learning more and more through meditation with this in mind!

I love my journey. Good, Bad, Wonderful or Horrific the situations may be. I am who I am today because of all that I went through. My life! I love it!

How about you?

Perfection is something we can't seem to attain though we try. I like your cardinal too in your sidebar. I found a lot of people liked the pair of cardinals in my white looking tree.

My wife's grandmother said the secret to marriage was "finding the imperfect man who's perfect for you." Somehow, starting by substituting the word "situations" for the word "man," that quote can be tweaked so it applies to life in general.
