“We are all wonderful, beautiful wrecks. That’s what connects us–that we’re all broken, all beautifully imperfect.” -Emilio Estevez
I’m doing another 52 project with My Four Hens Photography and this week’s theme was imperfect. I thought ‘hey! I can do both projects at once!’
We’re all perfectly imperfect. I have a crooked nose, one eye higher than the other, no matter how hard I try I can’t seem to keep my desk clean for longer than 24 hours, I stay in my pajamas until I absolutely need to change, I stack my dirty dishes in the sink instead of washing them right away, I have a very narrow temperature range I can tolerate (ranging from 68-75 degrees), I have food allergies ranging from gluten to watermelon (yes, watermelon), and a passionate soul that often gets mistaken for a bad temper.
And although I’m working on some of these things, I honestly can say that I’ve come to love all my imperfections because it is what makes me who I am. I think it’s important that we all take the time to reflect on our imperfections. Then, instead of feeling bad about ourselves, we embrace them.
