I have never been big on New Year’s resolutions. They have always been short lived, 24 to 48 hours at the max. Cartoon character Garfield’s resolution was not to mess with perfection. This little quip gave me a chuckle. Then I decided I am going to adopt Garfield’s resolution – not messing with perfection this year.
Isn’t perfection overrated? We were created to be human not perfect. Why in the world do we continue to strive for something that doesn’t exist? Being human with all our quirks, foibles, and goofiness is perfect. All God wants this year is for you to be you. And guess what? It’s fun to human – it brings you and God joy. But if you have that personality that just needs to strive for perfection – well so be it. I guess it’s perfectly fine to strive for perfection – just don’t mess with perfection. Let life unfold with beauty, ease, color, and design and it will all be perfect.
Happy New Year!
