On One Condition

Live by the rule that living unconditionally is the only condition. Waiting to live is the same as waiting to die. The weather conditions may not be ideal, the job conditions may not be ideal, the timing may not be ideal.

Ideal has two meanings:

1. satisfying one’s conception of what is perfect; most suitable. Synonyms include: Perfect, Flawless, Faultless, Absolute.

2. existing only in the imagination; desirable or perfect but not likely to become a reality. Synonyms include: Unattainable, Unachievable, Impractical, Unworkable.

What more than disappointment waits for us on the other side of an ideal for living that is rooted in flawless execution of what’s inherently unattainable?
