Imperfection Is Beauty


imperfection is beauty  

There are so many people seeking perfection by trying to be a copy of someone else...

Media bombards us with images everyday telling us what perfect is and what we aren't. Media tells us what we should be, rather than to appreciate ourselves as we are.

So, we begin to copy others... from magazine models and celebrities to individuals in our community that we deem 'better'. However, we only begin to replicate others due to a lack of self-worth and ultimately the lack of acceptance for who we TRULY are.

By looking outside of ourselves for an acceptable variation of self, we never grow to value what is uniquely and beautifully us. So, we struggle to be less of who we are and more of someone else.

Copies may feel safer imitating others they deem perfect or more acceptable, but something will never feel at home within them... Because they're constantly having to be SOMEONE ELSE. For those that are brave enough to be an imperfect original, they will always feel a sense of home inside of themselves.

There is no trying,only being.

Dare to be ridiculously original, rather than a boring imitation.

"Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring." Marilyn Monroe
