Life itself is far from perfect. We as human beings strive to hopefully become the best version of ourselves. Therefore, “Wabi Sabi” does pertain to people as well as objects. Each of us develops character and personality, as we grow older. Taking this concept one step further, the significant others in our relationships need to be accepted for who they are – flaws and all. Although, we may strive to be virtuous, we may be imperfect in our daily thoughts, deeds and actions. In truth, aren’t we all worn? Aren’t we all works in progress? That is how we continually learn to conduct ourselves to create and achieve the results we desire in our lives.
There exists a natural pure magnificence in all things and in us in spite of the apparent imperfections alluded to in Wabi Sabi. Perhaps we would benefit by focusing more on valuing the intrinsic beauty of things well worn, like others, our possessions and ourselves. They really are aged to perfection.
