18 Steps Away from Perfect

I almost believe there are perfect people in the world.  You know, acquaintances you admire from a distance who never seem ruffled or speechless.  They look like they've just stepped off What to Wear.  They know what they want AND they do it.

I always feel about 18 (or 18,000) steps behind them.  And even though I know nobody's supposed to be perfect, I wonder.  What do you think?  Do perfect people exist or is it a farce?

On another note, I want to thank Mary and Diana for giving me the Scribblers Award and the Lovely Blog award.  You guys rock!  I'll pass those awards along later (I have to hurry with this post, my daughter is sick).

But for all my "perfect" followers, here is an award for you.  Enjoy!


  1. I think even the most genuinely, near-perfect people have faults. The closer they are to perfect, though, the more likely they are to acknowledge those faults. ;-)

    Congrats on your well-deserved awards!

  2. Shannon, I like your take on this. True perfection would be humble.

  3. I'm with you. I'm 18,000 steps behind all those perfect girls!

  4. SarahAnn, maybe we should start the 18,000-Steps-Behind-Club.

  5. Add me to the 18,000 steps-behind-club. I'm flustered and speechless daily, at least!

    I'm glad you like the award, and congrats on the Scribbler :)


Thank you so much for your visit. I love hearing from you and dearly appreciate your comment!
