My Imperfections. Your imperfections. The Beauty of the Blemish. Metaphorically or Not

Hey, thank you for indulging. If you want to. I would love to talk about imperfections specific things about ourselves that can be labeled or perceived as imperfections. But honoring brings them into the room and brings us around them, sort of in this community of, yeah, that's wonderful that you have that in your life and a part of you and you're acknowledging it and see where this goes. It's part of a project that I call Blemish. So imperfection

Perfection is not welcome here. I don’t even know what that word means. I honor your imperfections. Call them out into the light!

My Scoliosis

And I'm not being Pollyanna here. It really is something that has been a part of me. It makes me aware of my spine in a way that I don't think I would have been if I was a straight spine Gal. I like to be reminded to stand up and bring it into the alignment that it possibly could go into. So there's this consciousness that kind of like about it. And it's imperfect. I have an imperfect spine. There you have it. My imperfection

But like in my nature, when I get upset, if someone upsets me, if I'm disappointed instantly, in my mind, my mind goes to be in the a******. I'll just say at this one time, and I don't like that about myself, but I've come to this place, which this space you created. I feel like it's kind of in sync with is that we have to acknowledge all parts of ourselves, especially other unflattering things

Psycho-Spiritual Physical Imperfections

Interesting. I like this. I'll give it a try. So psychologically, I'm a perfectionist. I'm challenged with creating and boundaries that allow me to acknowledge that my creations are good enough. Physically, I have fat hands. I've been teased a lot for having potato fingers, but my hands are naturally strong. So I'm in relationship with the thought that my hands are beautiful and finally, spiritually. I'm naturally cerebral

But I say I would say that kind of an older one is that I was always like, super. I was always hiding kind of the fact that I thought I had a big forehead. I don't even know if I do actually have one. I think I do it's pretty bigger than normal. But I would say I was like, hiding it a lot and didn't want to make it super known and things like that
So thank you so much for that. It is an imperfection. I think it's one that I own. I love this. And there's so many things I think if we were to balance our imperfections with what our strengths are, imagine the list and how unbalanced it will be. So here is to everyone's imperfections. I love the replies. And here's to you, owning exactly what you affirmed allowed today. All right. You all have a great day. This is Lily with the
