All of us have our faults and embracing them allows us to love ourselves even with those faults. read this story from a man who has Multiple Sclerosis who like that chipped cup that we just can't throw away, imperfections are a part of life. Accepting them in ourselves and others is a way to love ourselves just the way we are.

Hello, Girlpower!

What you say is so true, and how beautiful to be reminded of it. The photo of the Blue Heron is lovely, and another, organic reminder to let things -- -- our wings! -- unfold naturally and fly as they will. I hope you'll continue to write and to post her win your journal for the benefit of others, and to reach out and connect. With Appreciation, - Sarah

Yes, it is true that the perfect do not need love; only our imperfections need loving acceptance.
