Attention to detail is my life’s slogan – always about aesthetics and ambiance. You can find me at Williams-Sonoma tirelessly inspecting soup bowls and glassware, searching for THE PERFECT item. Consider me a perky perfectionist.
Speaking on behalf of perfectionists, unforeseen flaws in our day-to-day living is a major cringe, no? Minimal hiccups (perhaps leaving keys inside the car) turn into full-on gnashing of teeth. We’re heavily indulged in our own egotistical utopias, the humanity within us seems to be growing sick.
Then and there I figure what’s lacking. Some examples include:
- unmet dinner dates
- overdue dental appointments
- buying the wrong water filter
- zipper malfunctions
- forgetting cottage cheese from the grocery list
I’ve learn to embrace the ridiculously swift predicaments and simply figure out how to fix a situation from the get-go. No need for a theatrical reenactment of “woe is me!“.
Every situation won’t always be in our favor, that’s a fact. We learn to cope with uncertainties and move on. Stop knocking your head over the occasional oblivion. We’re creatures who seldom forget, given the strenuous pace of life in which we live in. Busy living has its consequences, so just be human.
