I’m sorry I can’t be Beautiful!!

When I choose a subject to ponder on , I also use one of the other quotes as the title of my blog. I think I’m sorry I can’t be beautiful says a lot about perfection and the journey it can take us on and the damage it can cause in our lives.

I am reading a summary of Tim Ferriss’s The Four Hour Week at the moment, I have the book on hold at the  library, which I will pick up after completing this blog. I love the section on elimination of things to gain time back in your life nearly as much as the section in Danielle LaPorte’s Daily Planner  where is asks you what are you going to stop in your life to attain your goals. Having to do this each day makes you think at a whole new level.

So, can we reach perfection? A better question is what do you personally think it is, let’s travel down the path of the 15 quotes:

Namaste until next time, my dear friends.

One thought on “I’m sorry I can’t be Beautiful!!

  1. No matter how much I now ‘believe’ that I am perfect just as I am, I still give myself a hard time for not being more. I think it’s a byproduct of growing up in these times, with the kind of messages we receive via the media. I guess that’s part of not being perfect, acknowledging how one isn’t always able to resist such external input.
