Be better than ‘perfect’
This is the bracelet that I wear most days.
It says LIFE IS FUNNY.
In the making, the L got accidentally flipped on its side.
And through wear, the E has turned itself into an F.
It isn’t ‘perfect’. But it is solid and real and delights me in ways that I need.
It still took work to make.
It is still silver.
It fits me just right.
I like it better than ‘perfect’.
As a speaker, what are you aiming for?
What is better than ‘perfect’?
What is real?
