“Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius, and it is better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.” Marilyn Monroe

Too often we see our flaws and failures as negatives, focusing solely on how they block our immediate happiness. Instead we can choose to embrace them. Improve on them if necessary, but while improving, take the time to appreciate the beauty in you. Being yourself is true beauty.

I appreciate my goofy smile and my white teeth even though I don’t get to see myself smile enough. What is one thing you can appreciate about yourself today? Respond with a post or a picture or a video of the one thing you appreciate about yourself today!

  1. I was just watching “Good Will Hunting” last night and Robin Williams talks about that with Matt Damon. He tells him that it’s not about finding the perfect girl but finding the person that’s perfect for you….good stuff.

    • Yeah that is a great quote from the movie man. It makes sense though. You define what perfect is. Totally accepting yourself and the people you are around is perfection. Not always easy to do but again it makes sense. Thanks for the response.

  2. Good day! This post could not be written any better! Reading through this post reminds me of
    my old room mate! He always kept chatting about this.
    I will forward this post to him. Fairly certain he will have a good
    read. Many thanks for sharing!
