Broken and Whole

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. 🙂

What do you think?

  1. This is truly a great concept of life. Broken and whole; broken as humans and whole because of what Christ has done for us.

    Thanks for this Megan.

  2. This is really wonderful, and I love your last line there – I am okay right now, knowing I won’t be okay all of the time. Balancing hope and acceptance. So well put.
