“Sometimes the dustiest cover hides the best book. Sometimes the best cup is chipped.”-Once Upon A Time
Sometimes imperfections in life steer us away from greatness. Imperfections come in many different shapes and sizes, from a boss you can’t stand in an ideal job, to a relationship that has minor hardships. But the biggest imperfections in life, are the ones we place on ourselves. How many times a day do you judge not only yourself, but your actions? How many times do you look in the mirror and pick one thing that’s wrong with your appearance? Imagine if instead, each morning we picked one thing we loved about ourselves, and didn’t want to change in the least. We would be so happy and positive about our appearance, and more accepting of ourselves. Stop picking on yourself, and instead be and accept yourself. Shine your imperfections, and be who you are. When we look at a flower, where do the imperfections begin and end? The whole picture is perfect, the in between do not need to be magnified. We always want to challenge ourselves and push ourselves to the limit, but along the way a little pat on the back is not only nice, but uplifting and will get us to our end goal faster. Yes we are that chipped cup, but if others can look past our chip, can’t we ourselves do the same? You are beautifully flawed, and imperfectly perfect!
“Passion is passion. It’s the excitement between the tedious spaces, and it doesn’t matter where it’s directed…It can be coins or sports or politics or horses or music or faith…the saddest people I’ve ever met in life are the ones who don’t care deeply about anything at all.”
― Nicholas Sparks, Dear John
When you are out, or just having a conversation with someone, if you pay full attention to them, you can see what moves their soul. When they are describing a book, and their face is so enthusiastic about it, or they are flaying their arms in excitement. It truly is an extraordinary remarkable moment. People rarely talk about their passions, because they are so involved in topic of conversations about their terrible boss, or day at work. But on that rare occasion that someone sparks your attention by their beaming energy, and you can just see how deeply they are rooted to it. It’s magical, much like a still night with a full moon. The moon was always something that intrigued me. Not just for the simple fact that it can light up an entire sky in darkness, but how perfect it can look even when it’s not full. It’s beauty is in all shapes and sizes. The moon, if you haven’t noticed yet, is a passion of mine. To lay in the grass and stare blankly into the stars, and moon, is just an endless feeling. But the best feelings in life are the one’s where we can exchange our moments that bring us to these amazing places. Not only because everyone has a different passion, but because it shows we have depth in our souls. We can continue to have the same conversations upon ever meeting, or why don’t you dare to ignore life’s worries, and indulge in conversations that move your soul. So tonight meet me under the moon, close one eye, and put your thumb up, i’ll be there waiting….
” No matter where it is in the sky..No matter where you are in the world..the moon is never bigger than your thumb.” -Dear John
