Being born with a physical condition I didn’t know I had, has allowed me to look beyond the imperfections, because physically I wasn’t born perfect. Life isn’t perfect, we are imperfect and flawed in so many ways, therefore we shouldn’t strive to reach for perfection.
When we can live and look beyond our own imperfections we will have a chance to be and stay happy. I believe happiness is a spiritual experience of living with love, grace and gratitude in our lives, for the things we have and for the things we choose to overlook.
When we can learn to look beyond the imperfections, we will have achieved greatly by letting go of the need to be or strive for perfection. Letting go of perfection and looking beyond the imperfections, will allow us to prioritise the important things in our lives. It is doing those things that will help us learn and grow.
