I Believe In The Beauty Of Imperfection

Your imperfection is what makes you perfectly human, and abundantly lovable 3,498 People

    Simplicity

    Hi :) I'm an aspiring artist/photographer and I find beauty in the simplest things. A raindrop hanging on a blade of grass, a green apple just sitting on the table with a ray of sunlight showering it, or even a wilted rose on a cloudy day. For me simplicity and imperfection are...

    I'm going to be completely honest.

    I accept and respect everyone, but I do have certain standards when I'm looking for a boyfriend. He doesn't have to look like a supermodel, but I like my guys decent. I am one who finds small imperfections highly attractive. Qualities like a tiny gap, crooked smile, or a...

    Ah yes, the beauty of your friend's foghorn

    sneeze, a full, hearty snort when they laugh, or the hair that won't stay down for the life of it. Without imperfections we wouldn't have all this cute stuff would we? I mean, there'd be no freckles! *gasp*

    I'll Admit I'm Not Perfect

    Isn't the point of being human to admit to your mistakes, I may not be the best boyfriend, lacrosse player, student, son or brother but run me over if I don't try my hardest. So what you make mistakes it happens and other humans accept you for those mistakes, being "perfect" is...

    Let's face it, no one is perfect.

    We are all flawed. Each of us has something that gives us character... That being said - beauty is ultimately in the eye of the beholder. There is beauty in everything and everyone. However, not everyone perceives the beauty in all things/people. We see life through the lens...

    The word "beautiful" is a powerful word.

    It is used too loosely in our society. No one is born beautiful. Only you have the power to make yourself beautiful. Your dress size defines how hot you are. Your features define how pretty you are. Your beauty, on the other hand, is defined by how you carry yourself around...

    Gems Of Imperfection

    There is no comparison to the beauty of imperfections and value than gems. People generally consider flawless gems or "perfect" gems to be the most valuable. The question is why? They aren't rare, in fact the only way to get a perfect gem is to MAKE it. Imperfections are a...

    A Diamond With A Flaw Is Worth More Than A Pebble Without Imperfections

    Sometimes we strive so hard for perfection that we forget that imperfection is happiness. This is the very perfection of someone, to find out their own imperfections. Don't make a habit of pointing out other people's flaws. You're not perfect either. Look in the mirror before you...

    I tend to shy away from things and people that look perfect. After all, nothing is perfect. If I don't see flaws then I figure they are hiding somewhere. I'd much rather see the imperfections and love the beauty I see.
