“Be Perfectly Imperfect” is a collection of 41 two-minute reads designed to communicate a short and pertinent message of inspiration to the reader, without becoming too long-winded. Though the topics of the short essays are varied, they all gel into a common theme of how to live a better and joyful life – with love, laughter and chasing your dreams to fruition. They encourage self-discovery and contentment, displaying the author’s personal views and experiences and attempt to inculcate an appreciation of the lighter side of life. Essays include “ Be Perfectly Imperfect”, “You Become What You Think”, “ The Art of Letting Go”, that encourage us to monitor our thoughts more, learn how to let go of the negativity we collect and become more spontaneous in our life, releasing any judgmental attitudes we may hold toward others.
Essays such as “Labels Are For Milk Bottles, Not People” elucidate the value of accepting people, as they are – multidimensional beings of different shades – and not trying to package them in neatly labeled simplistic personality models.
Life is about being fearless and living each day more consciously. Life is about looking inward into our hearts and finding peace there. “Life is Breaching the Fearsome Walls of What-Ifs” and “Life Is A Symphony of Silence” are opening oneself to the inner possibilities of fearlessness and moving beyond the outer and inner chatter to a state of profound peace and silence.
How to be much happier in our daily lives, making it richer by embracing the small jewels of priceless moments that happen and laughing open heartedly – are the central themes of “The Recipe For Happiness Is Not Gourmet”, “Laughing With Life” and “Little Things Matter The Most”.
“Why Am I Here, Again” and “ Am I Good Enough?” are about reflective self-understanding.
Whatever I feel has flown from my heart onto these pages, spontaneously in a sometimes serious, sometimes quirky way – culminating into these short writings.
This book has a voice that is conversational and blog-like. It invites the reader to participate back with their views. It draws examples from their daily life. The examples and feelings can be related to, by everyone, whichever cultural orientation or nationality they may belong to. There are dashes of whimsical reflection; poetic hope, introspective musing, humor and a serious vein all together varying from essay to essay.
