the wild coast. south africa."i wish for you an imperfect life,and all the wonder that living can bring...the wealth that comes from knowing loss,the tears that find their way to laughter,the joy that grows after the rain,and the love, felt deepest,by those who have beencarved by pain.i hope that you canvalue this imperfection, hold on to it,so it gives you such comfortthat you will dare embrace the beautyof all the imperfect lives that surround you,and then you will be perfectly freeto step to the beatof your own imperfect heart,and you will have truly lived."
it seems as though words [and people] come into our lives at the exact right moments and you can't help but wonder if it is a sign [big smack in the face] from the universe. this perfect combination of thoughts came to me at a time of feeling sorry for myself [i do that a lot lately. it's ugly and i need to stop.] because my life is not perfect. but, i want it to be. and everyone else's seems to be. however, it is the imperfections that make life worth living. isn't it? so may you have a perfectly imperfect week. and may you appreciate the flowers that can only come after the rain.
