In Others’ Words: Imperfect
If happiness only occurs when everything is perfect . . . well then, not a one of us is ever going to experience a single second of happiness this side of heaven.
And yet … happiness has embraced me in many less-than-perfect moments. Surprised me. Comforted me. Strengthened me.
Imperfect doesn’t mean worthless.
An imperfect moment (or moments) in a day doesn’t have to obscure the glimpses of happiness that might be tucked within the very same day.
Am I saying to gloss over heartache?
But I am saying to learn to let go of the oh-so-high-bar of perfection so that we can grab hold of the happiness right within our reach.
In Your Words: When were you able to look beyond the imperfections and embrace happiness? I’d love to hear your stories and insights.
