I ran across this quote by Jackson Kiddard today and I loved the message of complete self-acceptance as well as the acceptance of others. We are all perfectly imperfect. What if we could just embrace our imperfections as well as those of others? Wouldn’t we be much happier?
His full quote reads:
“Today I affirm that there is nothing in me but love.
This love comes from total acceptance of myself
and the understanding that I am a perfectly imperfect human being.
I will walk through today and allow myself to fully express my perfection.
I realize that all my “faults” are actually the Universe’s unique way of expressing itself through me.
I let go of self judgment and any projected judgments of others that I have chosen to believe
and finally allow myself to just be what I truly am: infinite.
As this is true for me, so it is true for all other beings on the planet.
I will choose to accept everyone in my life with the same radical acceptance I have for myself
knowing that we are all perfectly imperfect human beings simply doing the best we can.
And so it is.”
