The Perfection of Imperfection

Things don’t always turn out the way you want them to be. It’s hard to accept the fact that the life you’ve been dreaming of is not the life you’re living. And you’ll ask yourself “What if?” There are a lot of decisions in life that you wished that you could have altered, hoping that it may deliver you to a much better life. Maybe it will, Maybe it wont. Who knows? You have already made your choice. But here’s a fact. No one’s perfect. You make mistakes, encounter pain and may live in sadness for a long time. But those are perks of living. In life we are only left with two choices: either you choose to live or to exist. These are two different things. Existing is just going with the current of life; waiting for the things to turn out the way you want without taking actions; choosing not to bother yourself with anything as long as you are there. Now, living is taking risk and hoping for the best to happen. Most of the time, you’ll stumble and get broken. But when you choose to live, you’ll always stand up stronger. If you choose to just exist and conform to whatever the society tells you, then you are no better than a puppet being controlled by entities that take advantage of your life. Believe me you’ll never end up with a happy and contented life with this choice. If you choose to live, the road will never be easy. No, It’ll never be easy. You will break your heart in the process; you will die in the process. Death is inevitable. Fortunately, it’s not the physical death; it’s the death of the old you who wanted to be reborn. They say, “You only live ones. But if you live it right, once is enough”. #YOLO

We’ll always make mistakes because we are not perfect. We are designed by God that way. But, is it a bad thing? This means that we are given the chance by God to make ourselves better. God has granted us the opportunity to live a life. We are designed as perfectly imperfect. This is just one of those undeserved graces that God has given us: “To Experience Life”, “Living”. But in His eyes, we are all perfect. Yet most of us take this gift for granted. Why? Because we think that this is not what we want; simply because we are blinded by the physical world, by the standards that this generation has set.

We always wanted more and that is not a bad thing. Millions of people tried to make this world as perfect as humanly possible, recreate things that have been deemed impossible in the past. We may say that we can never be perfect but we are all capable of improvement. The little imperfections that we can notice within our self enable us to improve and be a better human, enable us to grow and build something that shatter all logics and human reasons. That something is “relationship”. Yes, there is no perfect relationship yet we can still see the smiles of contentment in the faces of our love ones. Why? Because the strongest catalyst that can bring us closer to perfection is LOVE.

So don’t be afraid to make mistakes; it will make you stronger. Don’t be afraid of pain and sadness. At the end of the day, you’ll surely realize that all those things are worth it. And here’s another fact. The richest people in the world are those who have something that money couldn’t buy. I’m pretty sure you know what I’m Talking about. Learn to appreciate those things and definitely, you’ll realize that the imperfect you is living the perfect life. It may not be the life you’ve been dreaming of but it’s the only version of life that can surely make you genuinely happy.


Message for the Unhappy

If you’re Genuinely Happy this is not for you but you are allowed to read it anyways… smile emoticon
“Most of our problems are rooted in an empty love tank”-(From Bro. Bo’s Book Is your love tank empty?). Yes! we do have a love tank. And those person you see living their life happily most probably filled their love tanks full. So here’s what will happen if your love tank is empty; Your lonely, unloved, depressed, angry, needy and all other negative feelings. Do you have this symptoms? If you do, I’d advice you to read the book. Now, here’s my own take on the subject of “Love Tank”. Every person has a love tank right?, but we also have a false love tank. And that false love tank is being fueled by our anger, isolation, being judgmental and being full of our self. Unfortunately this is the one tank that never runs dry within us. Especially nowadays, in this generation, that people are promoting violence, sex, and other things that tends to bring people down. If we continue to fill this false love tank we will never be contented, happy and be at peace. We will never have a healthy relationship with the people around us. And we will never find ourselves. Surely,nobody wants that to happen, so what to do? The best part of filling our love tank is that the solution is very simple, “Turn yourself to God”. God is love and nobody can fully fill one’s love tank but God, not your Girlfriend/boyfriend, not your parents/relatives only God. I’m not saying we don’t need them, but they can never fill our love tank full unless we add the Love that God has to offer. All of them hold an essential part in making our love tanks full. Your love tank will never be full if you continue to sulk in your room because of the problems the world throws at you. When you let Him enter your life all good things follow, you’ll learn how to reconcile broken relationships, broken hearts healed, and the emptiness that you’ve been feeling for a very long time will be filled by the abundance of God’s grace and love. Genuine happiness is finally attainable. Don’t dwell in the past, live life to the fullest, go out and discover the beauty of every person, learn to appreciate the little things and spread love as much as you can. How do you expect to share your love to other person if you are only half full. You cannot give what you don’t have. I’m happy to share to you the unlimited-overflowing source of love, and that is God. Enjoy the fullness of Life smile emoticon
