Perfectly Imperfect!

For the past few weeks the hubby and I have been hitting the gym and we're on a mission to lose some weight. Seeing as that we have a very active 3 year old it's not cool when you're trying to run around and play with him and get winded after only a few minutes. LOL So we have decided that it's time to too lose a few pounds and get in shape, so that we are able to keep up with our son. I know that many people including myself have imperfections that they wish they could change and some do by getting cosmetic surgery etc. For me my number one imperfection that I dislike is my weight and luckily it is an imperfection that I can transform without needing surgical help. Upon some reflection about my flaws I do have some that although they are not my favorite I would not change them because I feel they add character and connect me in some way to my family.

For example the scar above my lip, is from a fall I had in my childhood home. I was 3 years old and a little too curious and decided it would be a good idea to climb a book self and then realized it was not nailed down and needless to say it came down and myself along with it. I was pinned against the wall and there was blood everywhere. LoL I laugh about it now but apparently my mother didn't think it was too funny at the time. That little experience left me with a scar that never fully faded. Another imperfection would be my nose. I'm not entirely fond of it and I have to admit that I am a bit jealous of my sister's little button noses. However I would not change my nose because it looks exactly like my mother's nose and I feel it's a special facial feature that we share. I suppose what I am trying to say is that no matter what imperfections or flaws you may have although they give character to your appearance they don't complete you. You can be beautiful and flawless on the outside but be ugly and horrible on the inside. I rather keep my imperfections and have a beautiful soul!

I hope my reflections help any of you that may have been feeling in any way uncomfortable with your outer appearance. Always remember looks fade with time but personalities don't! Be yourself and love yourself! A beautiful soul is the best quality one can have!

Wishing you all an awesome weekend!
