We’re all a little broken. But last time I checked, broken crayons still color the same.
– Trent Shelton
What if we instead of regretting our painful parts of our past, we consistently thought of our brokenness as something that equips us for a special purpose. Maybe even the hard stuff we endure is part of our journey that will help us to connect with others. Perhaps the compassion and humility we learn through our struggle make us stronger, more useful, or even more beautiful.
The challenge is to stop seeing brokenness as weakness. Let’s accept our brokenness as brilliance. Let’s expect it’s hidden gifts to become clear to us – and maybe helpful to others.
Thanks for being awesome – not perfect, but awesome, nonetheless. You are beaYOUtiful!
