Announcement: Wish you could change the past? Learn to let go and create a life you love with the Tiny Buddha course!

Let go of the idea of winning or losing. In the game of life, the most important thing is just showing up and doing your best.

Note to self: Beating yourself up for your flaws and mistakes won’t make you perfect, and you don’t have to be. Learn, forgive yourself, and remember: We all struggle; it’s just part of being human.

A meaningful life is not being rich, being popular, or being perfect. It’s about being real, being humble, being able to share ourselves and touch the lives of others.

Don’t stress. Do your best and forget the rest.

Don’t wait for everything to be perfect before you decide to enjoy your life.

Today might not be perfect, but it’s a perfect day to be happy.

You are allowed to feel messed up and inside out. It doesn’t mean you’re defective—it just means you’re human.

I have too many flaws to be perfect, but I have too many blessings to be ungrateful.

Lighten up on yourself. No one is perfect. Gently accept your humanness.

I’m a beautiful mess of contradiction, a chaotic display of imperfection.

One small crack does not mean that you are broken, it means that you were put to the test and you didn’t fall apart.

Excellence isn’t being the best; it’s doing your best.

You are imperfect, permanently and inevitably flawed. And you are beautiful.

There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.

I’d rather be honest and authentic and disappoint some people than to exhaust myself trying to keep up the façade of perfection.

When you stop expecting people to be perfect, you can like them for who they are.

Stop trying to ‘fix’ yourself; you’re not broken! You are perfectly imperfect and powerful beyond measure.

If we truly love ourselves, in spite of our flaws, then we can love others in spite of theirs.

I don’t know a perfect person. I only know flawed people who are still worth loving.

The thing that is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself.
