Is Perfection an Illusion?

If you’ve been keeping up with me on facebook then you know I took a much needed vacation out to San Diego, hence my absence from my blog.

I recently came across a blog talking about how perfection is an illusion. The big point the blog was making was that life is not perfect. WOW – well thank you for your addition to literary society Sherlock Holmes! I have yet to meet anyone who wouldn’t agree with that.

Here is where I disagree with the this blog. It went on to say that everything does not always work out, life lessons are not always learned, lives are not always saved, love does not always prevail, there is a false sense of contentment and safety projected by the entertainment industry and there are sad, lonely and delusional people susceptible  to these false images of reality and life.  To me what is sad is that someone has reached a rock bottom to where they believe all of this garbage.

Everything does not always work out – no, it doesn’t always work out the way WE want it to. But our way isn’t always the right way. Often times we fail to see God’s plan in our life. We want one thing, but He has something else planned for us. Doesn’t mean our lives aren’t working out, there is just a different path He wants us to go down. And everytime His direction is the right direction.

Life lessons are not always learned. Nope, thats why we have the funny saying out there “If ignorance is bliss then why aren’t there more happy people”. There will always be people who just don’t get it and never will. So why beat your head against a brick wall trying to make them. Cut the dead weight out of your life. I know I did with several of my so-called friends who were doing nothing but bringing me down and my spirit feels so much lighter because of it.

Lives are not always saved. Well….. that is up to you. All you have to do is open your heart to Christ and accept Him as your Saviour and the rest is taken care of. Saved.

Love does not always prevail. Actually this one I strongly disagree on. Love does always prevail, but it may not be in the way you intended. You would think having been through a divorce that I would be cynical about love. I am extremely guarded now with my heart. But if love didn’t prevail, then there would be no way I could be friends with my ex-husband. If love didn’t prevail, then I wouldn’t be able to feel anything in my heart again. Love comes in all shapes and forms. Love can be a friendship, a family love, an intimate love, even love from a-far. I have always said you can’t help who you fall in love with, but just because you fell in love doesn’t mean that is what’s right for your life. And when you trust in God, His love does always prevail. Love is one thing you should never give up on. Its out there, if you will just allow it to find your heart.

To say you want your life to be perfect is being unrealistic. I also think it shows a life lacking fun, character, integrity and humanity. If that’s the life you want, then go search until your dying day. But I personally don’t want a life that is perfect. I guess first because I couldn’t tell you what perfection would be for me. But more so, because I want character, integrity and humanity in my life.
