My girlfriend sent me this thoughtful quote:
I might not be someone’s first choice, but I am a great choice. I don’t pretend to be someone I’m not, because I’m good at being me. I might not be proud of some of the things I’ve done in the past, but I am proud of who I am today. I may not be perfect, but I don’t need to be. Take me as I am, or watch me as I walk away.
I don’t know who the author is but I love this quote. It helps me feel more in balance and allowing of me and my choices. It’s a great reminder that I don’t have to be the best, brightest, prettiest, smartest, etc. I just have to love the me that is sitting in this chair with my fingers on the keyboard. I have to honor the me that makes mistakes.
I am not perfect nor will I ever be. If I were perfect, there would be no need to improve and grow. To me the state of imperfection is the human state. Saying the wrong thing, testing the waters, wondering, wanting, hoping, dreaming, learning … so human and so real.

Loved that quote very much.
Who is prefect anyway? Name one … please!
I’m unique … in all my imperfection 🙂
Love this quote! And I think perfection is overratted. Imperfection is what makes us interesting!
Very beautiful words. Thank you, I needed to read this tonight.
And boy are we interesting! Imperfection is flung all over the place — on the ceiling and walls too! 🙂
You know there are some people that only make a move when everything is ‘just so.” Ugh! They’re not so much fun either – not like us!

What a great quote and motto to live your life by; I have wasted so much time trying to be someone I am not.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I have missed seeing you.
A lovely quote, and a good way to be. And many thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a ‘Like’!
Love this post. The most beautiful thing we can be is our perfectly imperfect selves. Boy have I been putting this into practice over the last several months! Thanks for this, dear friend. xoxo
What a brilliant quote. It is so easy to forget these things. Thanks for sharing.
“…I’m good at being me.” I love this.

Quand j’étais petit, ma mère m’a dit que le bonheur était la clé de la vie. A l’école, quand on m’a demandé d’écrire ce que je voulais être plus tard, j’ai répondu “heureux”. Ils m’ont dit que je n’avais pas compris la question, je leur ai répondu qu’ils n’avaient pas compris la vie. – John Lennon
