Selma Martin has been giving us a weekly challenge called “Espresso,” in which she calls on us to share a “morsel of wisdom” to encourage the hearts of our readers. This week the theme on her site seemed to be about “doing the right thing,” so I decided to share a maxim born out of my own heart — and one that I try to live by in all the aspects of my life:

perfection is not a requirement in my life, but excellence is mandatory.


  1. Oh, pearls! Yes. Imperfect specimen that I am, used to strive for perfection. No can do! I’ve learned. Now it’s doing the best I’m capable of what I strive for.
    What lovely words this week again, my friend. Thanks for adding a pearly spark to the conversation: went straight into my happy place. XoXo I bless you.

Hey, don't you dare go away without leaving me a note!
