The ‘imperfect’ perfect

The ‘imperfect’ perfect

When I see my mom-dad…I see love – genuine love…a love that has travelled times…generations… eras…through ups and downs…through births and deaths….Their relationship is not skin deep…it is intrinsic…they have a tie which has bound their souls…to the extent that they have this unsaid manner of expressing their affection…

My mom’s way of showing love is by submitting to my dad… Letting him take all the decisions for her…like what colour to wear…whether to go somewhere or no…to shop something or no…
It’s not that she ain’t capable of doing these things herself but this is because when my dad does these things for her…she feels happy…and on his side, he ensures the best in everything…double checks for everything to be proper…

This is not only with my parents…it’s with most of the middle-aged people…or with people who’ve lived together for 25-30 years…they all have this selfless love…they may not be the best looking…or the richest…or the most intelligent…but they have bliss…they have each other…

A friend of mine puts it beautifully…she says…not every guy is brad pitt nor is every woman angelina jolie…but two people, in love, always think that they are ‘the brangelina’ to each other…they make the effort to look good for each other…they are attractive to each other…

We’ve all witnessed cases where the most intelligent guy loves the dumbest girl…a ravishing beauty marries an ordinary looking man…a cleanliness freak gets an absolutely care-to-hoots person…a tech geek falls for a tech challenged…

That’s when I realise it’s not the perfect things which matter…it’s the imperfect things which make us happier…giving space to be better…Striving to prove and exhibit scope for betterment…

Love is not a onetime thing…it’s like that bank account…if you want to see a better balance…you need to keep depositing…we need to make things work…special efforts are needed to keep things running…the credit should always outweigh the debits… There will always be riff-raff between 2 people…but a little less ego…some adjustments and a little want…will create the magic that our parents witnessed…

They complete each other…fill in where one falls short…In one’s imperfection, they place their imperfection and reach (near) perfection…and that’s what life is all about!!!

About moodsnmoments

Am a person with ambitions and dreams…though I try to keep a practical approach towards life at all times but in my hearts of heart…am a dreamer… Am just someone who can be described to be made of memories and phrases…someone who lives life in each day and in many phases!!!! Though am a people’s person, I enjoy my own space and often like to get lost in the throes of reading, music and movies. Travel, whether actually being able to do so or even to learn about new places, consumes me. Even in the darkest of hours, when things seem to be going haywire, the little voice within me never ever gives up on hope. A firm believer of ‘ask and you shall get it…but just ask’ is one which keeps me going!!!!
