Not Gold

All that glitters is not gold.

How many of us are tripped up with this? Careful observation and the ability to listen help to see past the glitter. Some want the shiny surface whereas I prefer the genuine soul.

Embrace Imperfection

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThere is a kind of beauty in imperfection. -Conrad Hall

This can be the mantra for the perfectionist. Why do we focus on the little things? My personality and soul can outshine the cracks. So I will accept and revel in my imperfect world.
