Perfection within Imperfection

Look for the good in those we love.
I know too well this is not an easy charge. 

As we look for the traits of charm, it may seem like a task of farce.  Shoot to strike past those tough traits, faults, gaps and cracks in your loved ones.  While you seek for what is left, glimpse for the pure.  Use the good you find … as the start.  Then … care and lift the heart and soul of this loved  one.  Soon the hard-to love traits will wane.  Is this not what we want for us? I do!

    still have not tried this challenge…you do it so smoothly. I love the idea of your message. How easy it is to be critical in ways we do not even recognize at times. Thank you for this reminder to look though our eyes of love. hugs, pat

    Wise and kind and sensible. I suspect the what we see that is not “good” is a reflection of ourselves.

    Nice work, Becca, as always. You certainly rose to the challenge and gave it a good spin. Wonderful.

      Thanks, Jamie … I read that all the negative we find is indeed a reflection … sometimes, i have to really think about the connection … sometimes, I see it and sometimes not!

      Appreciate your stopping by ~~

    A wonderful and uplifting message ~

    love these food for the soul lines:
    Use the good you find … as the start. Then … care and lift the heart and soul of this loved one.


  4. Oh, that one syllable challenge can be a scary one. You did a grand job.
    And … yes … it is what we are all looking for.

    Becca! I hope you can bottle that! I’ll buy some for sure. 🙂


  6. Now this is a challenge, Becca, and one I would not take on, given my general impatience. Your message is clear and there are no “crammed in” words for the sake of addition to equal 100.

    Great material, and a stellar reminder of the Golden Rule as well. Amy
