It’s time to forgive. Be more compassionate toward yourself and those around you. It’s okay to be imperfect; it’s part of being human.

When you apply too much pressure, demanding perfection from yourself and others, you pave the path to failure. You begin searching for what’s going WRONG rather than appreciating all that is going RIGHT.

Striving for excellence is a worthy pursuit—as long as you accept the bumps along the way with humor and perseverance.

When’s the last time you laughed at a mistake, learned from it, and moved forward? Remember, an imperfect action is better than no action at all.
