The Joshua Gray Style Concept #66: Summer Monochrome Hybrid-Sets | Photographer: Kenni & Taylor
Life + Style Concept Message: “Imperfections”
Imperfection is a platform to be perfected. Whether your imperfections are as simple as the colors in a monochromatic hybrid-short set (featured in this concept) not being one particular color or if they are life experiences that detrimentally deviated from how you were raised, this is your present.
Imperfections make you who you are, but perfecting those imperfections (that need perfecting in relation to walking in our purpose) make us who we are called to be. When we submit all of our imperfections–in unison– to the perfecting of our purpose, we will begin to see meaningful and purposeful change in our lives. Nevertheless, embracing three values internalizes the process of purposefully perfecting your imperfections:
- Willingness: Just do it! Take all of your imperfections–the flaws they revealed in you and the lessons they have taught you, submit them to the process.
- Humility: Your imperfections invalidates entitlement to perfection, so fail to take pride in how perfect you are–yet take pride in the perfecting process.
- Diligence: Even when it seems as if your imperfections are too severe to endure perfecting–be diligent to the learning process.
Imperfection is a condition that every human endures, but every human won’t seek the perfecting treatment that is necessary. The process won’t be easy nor comfortable, you may even be reluctant to improve upon your imperfections (admittedly, I’m reluctant in some areas). Recognizing your reluctance to change is the preliminary step in recognizing you need revision, revival, or restoration.
