An Oriental Rug's Value is in its Imperfections
Ask any oriental rug dealer and you'll learn--the rug's value is found in its imperfections. Machine made rugs are perfect; but handmade rugs have imperfections. Oriental rug collectors look for those imperfections to prove the value of the rug.
Why not think of yourself as a 'rug in progress'? You're not a cookie-cutter human who is stamped out to look and be perfect. Learn to value your imperfections. And remember-- if you're going to do something wrong--at least enjoy it!
