Currie's Gratitude 31 January 2014

Imperfections are not inadequacies; they are reminders that we're all in this together.  [Brené Brown]

It amazes me how easily I can fall into the trap of trying for perfection. Or comparing myself and my effort to another whom I have deemed “right” if NOT “perfect.”

When I slow down and think things more clearly, I realise that there is no such thing as perfection, at least BEyond that shadowy thing that plays with my mind.

I've learned recently to love imperfection a lot because it shines such a big light on God's grace. And if someone has grace for you that's when you feel their love the most and they see you for who you are and they love you anyway.  [Lacey Mosley]

Such a revelation, this lovely thought. I notice in myself a leaning toward slowing down and enJOYing the imperfections in my Journey. And when I simply settle into it, when I am able to feel myself wholly connected with What Is and What Is NOT, I am done in by the generosity of grace.

It is only imperfection that complains of what is imperfect. The more perfect we are the more gentle and quiet we become towards the defects of others.   [Joseph Addison]

I like it when something is so clarifying. And so simplifying.

I love you, Currie
