I first saw this wonderful video via the cool blog For Those About To Shop. The creator is Karen Walrond, who says she took her camera and notebook out to find what makes us beautiful. Her conclusion: our differences and our imperfections. The video is short and delightful — a slideshow actually — of mostly women, most in their 30’s, interspersed with inspirational quotes.
The title of this post comes from one of the quotes, by Marilyn Monroe; “Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.” (As a mental health professional, I don’t fully agree with the middle part of her statement, but it is poetic!).
My only request to the videographer is to please make another slideshow with more over-40 women, as we love to see women who look like us, feeling happy and comfortable in our skin.
Do you find beauty in imperfection?
