Da Beauty of Imperfection

Entry 415

Before you continue reading this post please watch this video.
I touched my heart so much, i hope you get touched by it too.
As i watch this video over again i just can't stop the tears.
It is a video directed by Yasmin Ahmad.



Like said in the video, so often we focus on the perfect side of people and what makes them a great person.
But we often forget it is the lil insignificant things they do and imprefection that makes them perfect.

I reckon most of us have gone through loss of family, friends and special ones.
While watching i had flashbacks of late grandpa's passing on and the whole mass.
And somehow i took some time off just to think who grandpa really was and how he has left a legacy in my life.
At most times it takes something drastic to make us appreciate that person,
whilst when having them around we take them for granted.

This commercial is a great reminder to me to cheerish and appreciate everyone who has, who is and who will pass through my life and to love them even more.


[Gary im gonna steal your questions ('',) and adding on some]


When was the last time you look back and think how much a person have done for you?

When was the last time you spend quality time with that peson?

When was the last time you say this three simple words, "I Love You" but could mean the world to the one you loved?

When was the last time you thought about them in the midst of you hectic life schdule?

When was the last time you have done something for them that would make them feel appreciated?

When was the last time you encouraged someone?


It is never too late to start now!
Therefore with every moment you have with that person you love, cheerish and cease the moment and enjoy it!
Appreciate them to the bits like how you would when they have passed on.
In the end it is the lil imperfection which make them perfect for you.
