Perfectly Imperfect – Read Between The Lines

“You know, by the time you reach my age, you’ve made plenty of mistakes if you’ve lived your life properly.” Ronald Regan This was said when he was 76.

Ain’t No Perfect Here

If someone tells you that life has to be perfect, tell them stuff it. Life consists of different aspects, and some are managed better than others. It does not mean that it is a failure. And it does not mean that you should live it like you are stupid either.

I am sure that is not what God had in mind.

Looking for Mr. Darcy

I guess in someway, some people have some idea of what kind of men that they are looking for. Those people that they desire to spend the rest of their lives with. They may admit that those men will be perfect fits for them. I do not believe in perfect.

Which leads me to Mr. Darcy. His imperfections:- “For he was discovered to be proud, to be above his company and above being please.” from chapter 3 of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.

Those things, those imperfections were what made him stood out. His brooding, sulky and sometimes non-communicative behavior, was what made him interesting. Couple that with his opposite, Elizabeth Bennet, who had her flaws as well, and you have a fantastic love story. One that has some looking for their own “Mr. Darcy”. Or at least a modern day version to him or like him.

Colin Firth did an excellent job in the 1995 BBC/A&E adaptation to Jane Austen’s book. He captured the essence of who and what the character was about; and even today, via comments on youtube, of what some wish they have. But where can he be found? Does he exist?

The book, first called First Impressions, is a very good read. But remember when looking for your significant other, do not look for perfection, and that first impressions do not count. 🙂
