Perfect in our Imperfections

Found this on Pinterest today.... I love it. Yes, I have a small addiction to both triangles and circles (as per my 'hoop illustrations'), so naturally I like the simple illustration. But I think it is the phrase that caught my heart. Perfect in our Imperfections. Technology allows us to have an online presence & present ourselves however we like. There are days when I am not well, or depressed (errk... I hate that word), or I am having a bad hair day...whatever it may be, I am able to sit behind this computer screen and only allow the world to see what I want them to. I am so far from perfect and I know that I will never be, but I think I secretly hope that I could one day be 'close to perfect'! It actually sounds ridiculous just even typing those words. When I fail, when I am down/depressed, when I struggle with life's pressures, when I am not 'perfect', it is way too easy to see myself as weak & broken. I am always going to work towards improving my weaknesses, but I completely accept that I am full of faults, I am human and have imperfections...they are not necessarily a weakness but part of the wonderful 'jigsaw' that fits together to make me the person I am. I am perfect in my imperfections. I like who I am. Actually, I choose to love who I am. What a wonderful life this is.

    We are all perfect in our imperfections and when we learn to love them i think we make the world a better place.
