I came across this quote today and fell in love with it.
“There is some kind of a sweet innocence in being human – in not having to be just happy or just sad – in the nature of being able to be both broken and whole, at the same time.”
―C. JoyBell C.
I find this concept as a sort of essence of life – being able to be both broken and whole at the same time. I come across this constantly in my life through my pride and then the recognition of my pride which leads me to a humility and acceptance of myself. I forget that these two – brokenness and wholeness CAN exist together and they do exist together whether I recognize they do or not.
I find my yoga practice constantly brings out this truth – when i’m working on my ‘broken’ posture and yet accepting that this is my reality and being purely and wholly thankful for a functioning and relatively ‘healthy’ back.
I strive to be ‘better’ and yet fully live in my faults at the same time. I am perfectly imperfect. Daily I balance hope and acceptance. And I am okay right now knowing that I will not be okay all of the time. 🙂
