Dream Yoga Quotes

“Perfectionism is a slow death. If everything were to turn out just like I would want it to, just like I would plan for it to, then I would never experience anything new. My life would be an endless repetition of stale successes. When I make a mistake I experience something unexpected. When I have listened to my mistakes I have grown.”
