The Perfect Person.


Have you ever wondered what it would be like to meet the perfect person? Or better yet, BE the perfect person? I mean like perfect in every way.

No flaws.

Has never made a mistake.

Always says the right thing at the right time.

Has no worries about the future; no regrets about the past.

Is always on time.

Always looks their best.

(I could go on, but I think you get the idea…)

Hmm… sounds pretty appealing, huh? Ehh…. maybe not so much. This idea of there being a “perfect” person has been on my mind a lot lately. Everyone makes mistakes (yes, even me!) and sometimes it’s hard not to wish you were immune to life’s trials and tribulations. After really thinking about it though, I decided I wouldn’t want to meet the perfect person, even if they did exist. And I definitely wouldn’t want to BE them. Here’s why.

The beauty of life lies in our flaws. Our humanly flaws that every single one of us has. That not one of us has the right to judge each other for, because we all have them, even if mine are different from yours.

In our mistakes. And in our right to make them and learn from them and sometimes even repeat them a few times… just to make sure it really was a mistake after all.

In our inability to say the right thing when it’s supposed to be said. Instead of when it’s 30 minutes too late. 

In our faith that the future is going to play out how it’s supposed to; and in our trust that the past has played out just as it should have.

In our being late every once in awhile, because those extra few minutes spent with our loved ones really are more important than our daily business meeting.

In our looking our absolute worst, and knowing that the ones who love us for who we are, and not what we look like, will be there no matter what. Even if we have kleenex stuck in our noses, eyes red from crying, and leftover ice cream stains on our shirts from feeding our feelings (this has NEVER happened to me, I’m just referring to someone I know that this happened to once…).

Do you agree with me now? You wouldn’t want to meet that perfect person after all, would you? And as far as being that perfect person… not so cool after all. I mean come on, even Jesus wasn’t perfect (no really, he wasn’t. He even says so himself: “"Why do you call me good?" Jesus answered. "No one is good--except God alone.” -Mark 10:18. How’s that for doing my research?).

In my opinion, the best thing we can do to strive for that inconceivable perfection is to have a little faith, a lot of love, and of course, some coffee. Have a good one friends ☺

with faith, love, & coffee,
