AliceLeigh to be perfect is to be plastic. No one really loves plastic. The Japanese have a spiritual ideal called Wabi Sabi- it means accepting something for its imperfections and transience. Things change and it is beautiful. A blanket becomes softer through use, a tree grows into magnificence, a child grows into an adult. The lines in our faces are a story, a tale of adventure, sorrow and joy. Perfection lacks mystery and character.
When we make mistakes we learn. Perfection has no need for evolution so there is no usefulness in its existence. Perfection is a moving target and a fickle friend.
Look beyond the mirror's shallow promises. Don't be afraid to get messy. Messy things are fun. Think on it- was Van Gogh wrong? Paint ball, spaghetti, playdough...
Perfection is so subjective and if you have to define it you also have the power to redefine it. Make up some new rules and damn the critics. Peace.

Thanks, I understand where you're coming from. The thing is I don't have any critics and if I do then they're hiding somewhere in the shadow. I have created my own standard but I never considered wither or not I could reach it. I don't want to lower my self standard cause then I'd be lazy and making excuses for myself.

I guess I just want to feel beautiful when I feel ugly.

Some days you will try your best
and it will not feel like enough.
Some days the words you want to heal will hurt instead.
Some days you will question everything you do
and why you do it.
This doesn't mean you're a failure.
Or you should quit.
It just means this...
All of your days you will be human.
All of your days you will grow but not reach perfection.
All of your days there will be grace enough for you.
Keep going, friend.
Keep trying.
Keep moving forward.
I know it's hard on some days. But you are more than those days.
So close your eyes and remember you are loved.
Today. Tomorrow. Forever.



-Holley Gerth.
