Beautifully Imperfect

Have you watched this video before? It’s called ‘Beautifully Imperfect’ and if you haven’t watched it, please do so now. It’s funny and so wise.

 

To the people who love you, you are beautiful already. This is not because they’re blind to your shortcomings but because they so clearly see your soul. Your shortcomings then dim by comparison. The people who care about you are willing to let you be imperfect and beautiful, too. ― Victoria Moran, Lit From Within: Tending Your Soul For Lifelong Beauty

“In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, and they’re still beautiful.” – Alice Walker

“We are all wonderful, beautiful wrecks. That’s what connects us–that we’re all broken, all beautifully imperfect.”
Emilio Estevez

“Maybe the most any of us can expect of ourselves isn’t perfection but progress.” – Michelle Burford

“Usefulness is not impaired by imperfection. You can still drink from a chipped cup.” – Greta K. Nagel

“Better a diamond with a flaw than a pebble without.” – Confucius

“Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.” – Judy Garland

“The word ‘Imperfect’ actually spells ‘I’m perfect’ because everyone is perfect in their own imperfect ways.” – Anonymous

“This is the very perfection of a man, to find out his own imperfections.” – Saint Augustine

My imperfections and failures are as much a blessing from God as my successes and my talents and I lay them both at his feet.” – Mahatma Gandhi

There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in.” – Leonard Cohen

“The wound is the place where the Light enters you. ” – Rumi

 

Do you find it easy to accept your own imperfections and those of others?

    Such a touching video! Thank you for sharing! It had me tearing up. In today’s society, we are so focused and obsessed about being perfect in every way, that we forget that imperfections are what make someone really beautiful. It’s part of what defines us as individuals. It doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try to improve them, to be better, but we should also accept them and learn from them.

    Much better at it now than when I was younger, Corinne. Oh, how God does grow us in His time! I now see my imperfections as He sees them – loving me no matter what.
    Great post and wonderful quotes!

    Oh my gosh! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more beautiful video. Thank you for posting this! What a lucky man. What a lucky woman.

    As far as both my own imperfections and those of others, I am getting better at both. Usually I find it easier to accept imperfections in others and am hard on myself, but once in a while I find myself getting aggravated over little things others do that aren’t worth getting worked up over. Then I need to back up and breathe! 🙂

    Thanks for posting!

    God Bless…
