Wabi Sabi

I was reflecting on the word contentment and compared it to the more philosophical Japanese term Wabi Sabi. The words mean simplicity and imperfection, propagating the view to keep things simple and be content even if everything isn't perfect. In nature there are very few squares and straight lines. Plants and trees don't grow in a perfectly orderly fashion. Only humans have this tendency toward perfection. Try a little Wabi Sabi, be happy and know that life maybe isn't supposed to be all that perfect.
