I guess we all get caught up at times with the things that are of little or no importance. We can all lose track of the values we have grown up with or the ideals we have inherited. In a world that celebrates beauty and power and celebrity we can become eager to become the best, the richest, the greatest. Instead of striving for perfection perhaps it might be more useful to strive for acceptance of the imperfect self? Margaret Theresa Naughton.
