I caught a bit of Jane Fonda on Larry King Live this weekend. She was talking about her recent book, her faith and other life lessons. One thing I really identified with that she spoke about was that she grew up feeling like you had to be perfect to be loved. She then made a statement of what she's learned through her life and her faith about that, and it has been running through my mind ever since: "We're to strive for completion, not perfection." What do you think?

Hmmm. I don't know. But then, I'm a perfectionist, so striving for perfection is ingrained in me.

I don't, however, think my life will be incomplete if I'm not perfect. I just won't be happy about it. :)
