When I write, I share a little piece of my soul. Writing is like breathing for me. It’s essential for my well-being. The joy I get from my words “moving” someone is immeasurable. I write to take all the terror and tragedy and comedy and banality of life and wrestle it into something I can understand. So to know that my writing affects someone in a meaningful way, gives me joy. Then, I know my writing is worthwhile. #Blogging #Writer #Passion #creativity #Words #Affirmations #thoughtsonpaper #manifestation #authenticity #DeepThoughts #WordsExpressed #BeautyInTheImperfect #affirmations #authenticity #deepthoughts #blogging #thoughtsonpaper #wordsexpressed #beautyintheimperfect #passion #creativity #manifestation #writer #words
I used to wish life always looked as perfect as the gorgeous photo. I had this concept that I would be the perfect wife, mother, and person in general (just the small things 😂, TOTALLY attainable right?! Good intentions but not realistic). I spent a good part of my 20’s striving for this concept of perfect that would obviously make me and everyone else happy. So I worked hard to control everyone and everything around me because clearly I knew the best way to make everyone happy. Needless to say I spent some years with disappointment. I kept holding onto my own thoughts of how life should look. Then disappointment became frustration and anger (not my finest moments in life but the truth). After building frustration from clinging so tightly to what I “knew” would make me happy, I became resentful. Nothing was going my way and everything was falling apart around me. My choices left me looking at a separation, not knowing where I was going to be living, three kids lives disrupted by all the changes, and struggling to just get through each day. Through self reflection and prayer, I began to realize the only person I control is ME. The only thing I control in situations is my response. My response shapes my perspective. I focused on what I could control and found there were things I wanted to change. Not should change for anyone else, but because I knew I wasn’t doing everything right and all my problems weren’t caused by everyone and everything else as I had chosen to believe. It’s been a few years since then. I’m still learning. I’ve learned a lot since then. As hard as that time was for me, I learned life and especially me don’t have to be perfect. There’s still joy and happiness without perfection. I enjoy and appreciate the small things with my husband and kids. Double tap if ya can relate or tag a friend who is going through the struggle and needs some encouragement 💜 Beautiful pic by @alishasilverphotos #sparkleupbuttercup #notperfect #nosuchthingasperfect #cantcontroleverything #progressnotperfection #liveabeautifullife #beautyintheimperfect #happiness #joy #beauty #strength #struggles #mom #lifelessons #smallthings #itsthesmallthings #lovelife #nosuchthingasperfect #strength #progressnotperfection #beauty #beautyintheimperfect #cantcontroleverything #liveabeautifullife #happiness #mom #notperfect #joy #struggles #itsthesmallthings #smallthings #sparkleupbuttercup #lifelessons #lovelife
I’m interested in cracks and scars and mending and strengthening. In the putting back together, the weaving of the good and the bad, the pieces that don’t quite fit back together anymore but still make something beautiful. Some breaks are small - an idea or a comment that stays with you forever. Maybe not even bad, just cracks that allow room for change and growth. Some breaks are big. And damaging. See @humansofny or watch the news for example. I’m interested in the beauty of the healing. So in a nutshell that’s what I’m exploring with the work I’m posting. That’s also why I love the philosophy of #sashiko and #kintsugi and the idea of #beautifulscars and #weaving and even #puzzles. #beautyintheimperfect #wabisabi #lifeisbeautiful #sneakpeek #red #pink #pointillism #crosshatch #organicforms #artworkonwood #paperandwood #deepthoughts #paperandwood #kintsugi #deepthoughts #beautyintheimperfect #crosshatch #organicforms #pink #beautifulscars #weaving #red #sashiko #wabisabi #puzzles #pointillism #sneakpeek #lifeisbeautiful #artworkonwood
“In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, and they're still beautiful.” - Alice Walker. I love this quote and feel it’s a perfect fit for this photo. We spend so much time trying to be perfect in our appearances that we forget to see the beauty in our imperfections. I almost didn’t post this photo because my hair is a mess and in my face but it is the real me! On another note this scarf 🧣 from @jcrewfactory is so cozy! J Crew Factory just released their holiday backs and they are 40% off! I will definitely be ordering some holiday scarfs! #beautyintheimperfect #beautyintheimperfections #windblownhairdontcare💨 #natureismessy #oceanstylefashionweekend #offthehighwaysomewhere #scarfseasonisback #jcrewfactorystyle #jcrewismyfavstore #jcrewfactoryaddict #jcrewfactoryscarves #jcrewholiday #windinmyface❤️ #windinmyfacedontcare #messyhairdontcare💁‍♀️ #beautyisntperfect #loveyouforyou❤️ #jcrewootd #jcrewobessed #jcrewobsession #jcrewfactorystore #seethebeautyeveryday #humpdayfashion #oceanstylefashionweekend #windinmyface❤️ #jcrewholiday #jcrewootd #seethebeautyeveryday #jcrewobessed #jcrewfactorystyle #loveyouforyou❤️ #jcrewobsession #beautyintheimperfect #offthehighwaysomewhere #jcrewismyfavstore #humpdayfashion #windinmyfacedontcare #messyhairdontcare💁‍♀️ #jcrewfactoryaddict #scarfseasonisback #natureismessy #windblownhairdontcare💨 #beautyisntperfect #jcrewfactoryscarves #beautyintheimperfections #jcrewfactorystore
Kitsugi: Golden Joinery. The Japanese art of pottery repair using gold, silver or platinum powder mixed with lacquer. As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as a part of the history of the object, not something to disguise. * * * #beautyintheimperfect #myhistory #kitsugi #selfie #gold #heartofgold #thingsthatmakemesmile #honoryourjourney #satnam #selfie #thingsthatmakemesmile #gold #beautyintheimperfect #honoryourjourney #myhistory #heartofgold #satnam #kitsugi

Letting my pictures tell your story... #beautyintheimperfect #feelingphotography #familyphotosessions #adayinthelife . “The real questions for parents should be: "Are you engaged? Are you paying attention?" If so, plan to make lots of mistakes and bad decisions. Imperfect parenting moments turn into gifts as our children watch us try to figure out what went wrong and how we can do better next time. The mandate is not to be perfect and raise happy children. Perfection doesn't exist, and I've found what makes children happy doesn't always prepare them to be courageous, engaged adults.” // Brené Brown .

🌟💛 More mandala magic! I'm loving this new mindful practice of drawing freehand mandalas..... I think it's because I see harmony and beauty in them and that's mainly because they are not perfect 👌🏼 🌟 The beauty is in the imperfection detail..... a bit like us 🤗🌸 . . #freehandmandala #beautyintheimperfect #mindfulness #soulfire_life #mandalamagic #livingmydoterralife #sunshinecoast #queensland #queensland #mindfulness #livingmydoterralife #soulfire_life #beautyintheimperfect #freehandmandala #sunshinecoast #mandalamagic

You guys remember that 12’ long console table I built last week?!?! Well here it is, very happy in its new home. I just ❤️❤️❤️❤️ the way @ladyjandoc put it all together with her own accessories. I built the chevron door and the iron pipe shelves a few months back. She has great vision, and I love making it come to life. #reclaimedwood #beautyintheimperfect #lovewhatido #recreateddecor #beautyintheimperfect #recreateddecor #lovewhatido #reclaimedwood
