“There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful, than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me, that is the true essence of beauty.”
― Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience
Hi, my name is Aman and I’m a self-confessed mess.
NEWS FLASH: I’m not perfect. But thats ok…
I’m forever making mistakes and annoying someone, and kind of clumsy. But I have another confession to share with you.
I love being imperfect. I am me. I am still learning.
We live in a world where people are so quick to judge us, judge our way of life, our interests, our passions, our decisions, the way we parent, judge our children and their behaviour, the list goes on. There are so many people who are dealing with their own insecurity or lack of true acceptance of themselves, who will want to try to tear you down. Why? because even on a subconscious level misery loves company and they can find moments of comfort in that. In this world the reality is that there is so much separatism already that it’s on us to celebrate what connects us, what empowers us and each other, how can we make our lives more enriched, and enrich other lives around us. How we can love and accept and support ourselves first and foremost, build up that self worth, cultivate the self value because you, just as you are right now, you’re enough. Then, you can spread that goodness far and wide.
My imperfections make me who I am. I am comfortable within my own skin, even though there are some days I feel like I would love to tweak or change something, but I have learnt to embarrass my imperfections. I am proud of how hard I’ve pushed myself through tough situations. I know that I am a beautiful, attractive and intelligent person within my own right. I often speak before thinking. Which can sometimes make me look like a total arse, or sometimes, I can come out with a genius remark. Or at least I like to think so HA. 🤔
All of my imperfections make me, ME. No one else in the world is me and no one in the world is you. How amazing is that?
Our imperfections make us who we are. They make us perfect.
Let’s be honest people, who are you kidding with your perfect life?!
You wouldn’t be human if you didn’t have something mentally or physically wrong with you. You’d be robotic. You’d actually be really weird if you were
perfect. As Michelle Obama says in the Next Generation of Women speech;
“Take the time to get to know who you are to deal with the onslaught of negative messages that you’re bound to get. Wake up every morning and be the best YOU you can be.”
Don’t get me wrong, I sometimes catch myself in the mirror and think ‘Yeah I would love to be tall and leggy, and light eyes.’ But that’s not me. And the people who I do know that have been blessed with those genes; they still have to count calories and work hard to look that good. Absolutely no one is perfect.
“Nothing and no one is perfect. It just takes a good eye to find those hidden imperfections.” ― Daphne Delacroix
