Refuge

Hakuna matata

We all are in a hurry .. hurry to get money, to get fame, to get all the luxuries that one can think of; in a nutshell, a hurry to make our lives an epitome of perfection. In this frenzy of achieving perfection, I seek refuge in my imperfections. Yes, my imperfections are my refuge because when I get tired of running in this race that we call life, they give me a warm hug and whisper gently  into my ear, "Hakuna matata", and  that's when I feel a new energy within me. That's when I realize that the dream of perfection is a delusion that rips apart its seeker, while accepting ourselves with our imperfections just makes us more human.
