Aim at perfection in everything, though in most things it is unattainable. However, they who aim at it, and persevere, will come much nearer to it than those whose laziness and despondency make them give it up as unattainable.
- Lord Chesterfield

I have heard people talk about cooking a perfect meal. Yet, someone who makes an excellent meal today might follow same recipe next time but not get it perfect. You may be good at making perfect eggs; occasionally it won't turn out perfect - that's for sure. So, can we attain perfection in anything as human beings with flaws? As we strive to overcome our weaknesses, can we get to a point when we can say we have attained perfection of sorts?

To my mind, perfection is something we work towards and keep acquiring gradually. It's like life-long learning, a continuous, lifelong process. As a woman of faith, my perfection is absolute only through the Lord.

There are several areas of our lives that we seek improvement. I have goals to become a better writer. I want to be a better cook even though I am a good cook. I want to be a better person, mother, friend, worker, christian. I want to be better than I am presently . Will I ever get to a point when I feel I have become perfect at any of these? I don't think so. I believe that there is always room for improvement. It's not like human biological growth: you can choose to be stunted, stop growing or continue growing for life. We can set goals that will help us keep climbing the ladder, making progress towards perfection.

Have a great week y'all!
