Wabi Sabi

A beautiful thing is never perfect.

Egyptian Proverb  (via asleepylioness)

In a similar vein:

Wabi-sabi (侘寂?) represents a comprehensive Japanese world view or aesthetic centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete”.

This is fast becoming my aesthetic. Loving the imperfections that come with life.
