Today's Daily Dharma: Embrace Imperfection
practice is teaching me to embrace imperfection: to have compassion for
all the ways things haven’t turned out as I’d planned, in my body and
in my life; for the way things keep falling apart, and failing, and
breaking down. It’s less about fixing things and more about learning to
be present for exactly what is.
