Love Our Imperfections
I am filled with imperfections
I see them everyday
When I look in the mirror and see a blemish,
When I lose my keys,
When I let sadness get the best of me.
While it’s easy to see my own imperfections
It’s also easy to see the imperfections in others
When someone cuts me off,
When my friends are too busy to hang out,
When my family doesn’t understand me.
The thing is, it’s all those things
That really make us perfect.
To be human is to have imperfections
Those imperfections are what make us beautiful.
It’s through our imperfections,
Through our perceived failings,
That we can find our shared humanity.
We can discover compassion
When we accept our imperfections and the imperfections of others
Wholly and completely with loving-kindness.
I watched a beautifully touching video this morning which inspired this poem. I would highly recommend watching it! We are all imperfect and that is a form of being perfect if we choose to see it that way. Our imperfections make us beautiful if we choose to see it that way.
What imperfections make you beautiful?
