No matter how we live our lives and what we do to make them perfect, they never will be. You can spend years fighting this. You could spend decades denying it. And in the end, it will not be perfect.
We are not perfect people. We do not live in ideal circumstances. Our world is not perfect, nor is it totally imperfect. Our world is what it is.
And as people, we need to understand this. We do not give way to bedlam, and we do not demand the impossible. We find a way that we can live with what we can accept.
I know I have my flaws. And I know they will still be there long after you have read this and gone on to dinner. I know how to find a middle ground towards peace and acceptance, and I hope you do too.
What will you do this week to find your peace and acceptance?

A retired Air Force Master Sergeant, Mike used to lay in bed at night and worry about what would happen if his plant closed or found himself without a job. One day his plant closed. Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future.
Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force. Mike is a member of the Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society.
