I found this quote by Elizabeth Gilbert and it immediately got me thinking.
So many people try to change their life to make it perfect, or to what they believe perfection is. What they don’t realize is that everyone’s idea of what is perfect is different.
Maybe, instead of changing who we are to meet some standard that may never be achievable in our heads, we should look at our flaws and love them for making us unique.
I think that once someone can come to accept their quirks and accept that their life is one lovely “mess”; it will change how they choose to live their life and maybe realize that what they thought was wrong, was what actually made them perfect all along.
My challenge for myself and all of you today is to find one thing that you think is wrong or could be changed and think of how it makes you unique. Think of how much different your life would be without it. Embrace it! Because you are one glorious mess.
What do you want to love about yourself today? What makes you special? How do you interpret this quote?
