Practice Makes Perfect

Everyone has hopes, dreams, and aspirations.  Each of us were created to pursue our heart's desires.  However, after repeated failed attempts to achieve a goal, some people give up.  On the other hand, some people develop an even stronger drive to realize their ambitions.  Some people become desensitized and complacent with a mundane life absent of motivation.  Then there is another small group of people who constantly try and adapt to change...good or bad.

Our societal chameleons harbor the wild passion of a stallion and the tranquility of still waters.  They are as resilient as rubber and as tough as nails.  Seemingly, people like this are very strong and never have problems, worries, or stress over the many negative circumstances  that sometimes surround them.  On the contrary, this couldn't be farther from the truth.  Notably, practice makes perfect.

These experts of adaptation, societal chameleons, take life as it comes.  They don't harbor anger or resentment, bitterness, or jealousy.  They recognize if a situation isn't working in their favor and they adjust their plans accordingly.  They have learned, through practice, how to survive without giving in to the typical insecurities that plague the average person upon repeated denial, rejection, and pain.  They practice to be perfect at living well despite the circumstances of any situation.  The next time you notice a love seeming to fade, a wilted friendship, or any unfavorable outcome or condition of a situation...practice to heal, love, and live in spite of it all.  Practice makes perfect.

It's beautiful to be you...simply beautiful.
