Confession !

Getting honest…

It is tough for me. I am a perfectionist.

I like to have everything neat and tidy...all my ducks in a row....

...and I often consider myself at my peak proficiency level if everything is checked off my to-do list before the end of the day.

But on the contrary…if I admit that…I am not at all perfect…hmmm…

How does this confession sound?

Yes….I sinned….messed up…I fell short…tops my list are rarely checked.

And while I confess my sins to Almighty...

HIS grace and brilliance is breathtaking…and…my defences are blown away…all of my protective walls have come down.

It means…

I am admitting my unworthiness…and now there is nothing left.


  1. of course there is a lot left :-)

    I used to be a perfectionist. Then I realized that the perfectionists are actually the more imperfect people - they are trying to make up for something that they cannot fix by controlling what is around them.

  2. I love your line: "HIS grace and brilliance is breathtaking…and…my defences are blown away"...a beautiful place to be from which to build.

    Your light shines through...

  3. Life is only possible in imperfection, perfection means to cease. Imperfection means there is still room to add, to balance, to create, to makeover… so your ending lines of the post really highlight that....

  4. Wow, what a positive addition to looking at imperfection...love this comment, Dar Sahib.

  5. ya agree with akhtar; imperfection means there is still room to add..good post ya

  12. "Confession"

    A word rarely heard these days. Wikileaks is confessing on behalf of others.

    I need whole day to understand your posting in its true sense. I’ll sure be commenting on all, one by one, keep going.

    Best wishes
