Embracing Imperfections

Yes, I am an avid follower of the “Voice”.  Tuesday evening’s performance by guest star Dolly Parton made me think more about the beauty of  imperfection.  She was raised in a poor family of 12 and sang the song she wrote about a coat her mother made for her when she was a young child.  The coat was made from scrapes of rags. It was not perfect, but it was made with love, and young Dolly was empowered embracing this imperfection. The following verse is from her song:

Embracing Imperfection

by Dolly Parton

My coat of many colors
That my momma made for me
Made only from rags
But I wore it so proudly
Although we had no money
I was rich as I could be
In my coat of many colors
My momma made for me

Embracing Imperfection

Embracing ImperfectionThis is the best time of the year for letting go of perfectionism.  WHY?  Because perfect is impossible.  I invite you to look around and enjoy the beauty of imperfection.  Share your embracing imperfection memories with friends and family.  Here is one of mine.  During my children’s youth, they always picked out a Charlie Brown tree for the play room.  Every year they picked the scraggliest tree on the lot.  After they finished decorating their tree, with all their handmade ornaments, it was adored and accepted for all it’s imperfections.
