It's About Seeing The Beauty In Our Imperfections...

Unconditionally Loved


Faults. We all have faults that seem to show during moments of stress, circumstance or sadness. You know those days when you might be cranky and seem to have a permanent frown. Or maybe those days that don’t seem to be as you imagined.

Marilyn Monroe once said “I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I made mistakes and I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst. Then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.”

And I think that Ms. Monroe said it best. We`re not perfect, we’re human. At times we may be selfish or be pessimistic. But I think that life is about being around those that will love you through it. To love your past, your imperfections and see them as the unique facets of you.

Unconditional love. I think that what life is about. To be able to love is powerful within itself. But to love unconditionally at times can seem unfathomable yet profound act of selflessness.

Author Stephen Kendrick says “The only way love can last a lifetime is if it’s unconditional.” As he goes on to state that “The truth is: love is not determined by the one being loved but rather the one choosing to love.”

So yes, we all have faults. And that’s okay, we’re still beautiful just the way we are. And sometimes the most amazing aspects of our lives is being around those who love us unconditionally. Those that will lift your spirits. Those that will appreciate and understand those “faults” and embrace them for who they are…. You.

And as Dr, Seuss once said, “Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive that is your than you.” .

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
