One more day to go and I have officially completed my first NaBloPoMo(National Blog Posting Month) challenge !!! I listed myself on the blogroll under the General category; please, if you became a reader of Daily Mooosings... through following the link from the NaBloPoMo site, kindly inform me. ☺
The theme for the month was "In A Word", and I was delighted to have that as a theme for my first ever attempt at NaBloPoMo because as you know by now, if you have been following me for a while, I love words!
Tonight's word(s) (I would not be me if I did not bend the rules to suit my non-conformist nature!) is inspired by the title Beautifully Imperfect , a touching family advertisement from ThinkFamily directed by Yasmin Ahmad †.
I have to be honest and say, it remains a daily struggle to share images showing a slice of our life, but at the same time it remains a very rewarding experience, as soon as I have crossed the threshold of fear, self-doubts etc.
With this in mind, I consciously chose this particular blurry image, the first picture that P shot upon my request (actually another of those last minute plea for help and assistance, that I will not miss "showing up" for the project!) with his left index finger showing at the upper left corner.
I needed to be visually reminded that the heart of this project is about acknowledging and accepting one's imperfections and showing up anyway. One can change one's outlook and attitude towards life but it cannot be done in a heartbeat, as much as we want to, it will always remain a daily struggle to remain positive, optimistic, hopeful. But that is what life is all about, living one day at a time, striving to see the world in a positive light, and striving to be a positive light.
Most often than not, we need to remind ourselves about it again and again, and again. Like myself, rereading my own words in the blog I posted quiet at the beginning of this project, 5 days into the month of January: What is the Most Important Thing in Life?
Light and love to you all!
