Don't Expect Perfection

Don't expect perfection. Don't expect to have everything you want, all at once. Don't expect justice in every corner of the world, in every person.

Or all you'll get is disappointment.

We live in a broken world. We have flaws and weaknesses. We can do the worst things when powered with (and blinded by) emotion—obsession, fear, greed, love.

Accept the brokenness. The imperfection.

And appreciate the little joys. The moments of complete calm, of hope, of connection and community.

Get smarter and stronger from the losses, and celebrate the wins.
