Ashleigh Brilliant writes clever sayings that make you laugh or think. Part of his, well, brilliance is that the sayings are limited to a maximum of 17 words. He is one of the most widely-quoted living writers, and also the highest-paid (per word).
One of my favorite Pot Shots (which his musings are called) is the name of one of his books.
This is a good dating mantra. When you begin to focus on your imperfections (body shape, skin, wrinkles, hair, teeth, “baggage”), it is easy to forget that there are parts of you that are stupendous. Maybe it’s your quick wit, infectious laugh, great listening, continual thoughtfulness or loving compassion.
The guy who is for you will love you for all of your parts, not just the excellent ones. It’s the imperfect bits that make you the interesting and enticing creature you are.
And it also keeps you humble! Imagine how easy it would be to be arrogant if everything was flawless? My experience is the folks who are most arrogant have major imperfections and they use haughtiness to try to mask these failings.
Part of Cindy Crawford‘s allure is her mole. Angelina Jolie‘s overlarge lips are considered sexy. Mona Lisa‘s smile is enigmatic. Imagine how she’d look with a big smile flashing perfect, pure-white teeth.
