I thought I’d link this week’s Midweek Musical Magic to yesterday’s blog post Common Questions?
The song is All of Me written by John Stephens and Tobias Gadand sung by John Legend
I have a belief that if we can all learn to become the best, most honest version of ourselves we can live happier, healthier lives AND be more accepting of everyone else too.
“’Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I’ll give my all to you”
- What if we all gave our all to each other?
- What if we all acknowledged, accepted and celebrated our imperfections?
- What if we saw our imperfections as what makes us who we are – perfectly imperfect?
After all, imperfections are a judgement about what is right/wrong, good/bad and beautiful/ugly etc. Could how we see others and ourselves be different?
“How many times do I have to tell you
Even when you’re crying you’re beautiful too
The world is beating you down, I’m around through every move
You’re my downfall, you’re my muse
My worst distraction, my rhythm and blues
I can’t stop singing, it’s ringing, in my head for you”
So whether it’s flabby thighs, frizzy hair, a penchant for too much ice cream, an inability to speak Mandarin, or lack of confidence to speak in public whatever you describe as your imperfections, own them and celebrate them as part of what makes you you. If you want to change something make that choice if not then don’t.
And that difference you see in someone else?
Could you embrace it as what makes them a unique human being too?
“I give you all, all of me
And you give me all, all of you”
