Imperfections — in things, in people, in places — add character to life. Tell us about an imperfection that you cherish.
I think that I live my life simultaneously structured and unplanned. That would be to many people a serious imperfection, I think. In terms of my eating disorder, my relationship with food and exercise is very structured, bordering on the obsessive, compulsive; depending on how far down the spectrum of the disorder expression I am currently at at any moment in time. On the other hand I have always loved living by the seat of my pants especially when it comes to traveling and having adventures, this aspect does not always suit my traveling companions. There are some who greatly appreciate a detailed itinerary whereas I just like to get up and go, I’ll figure it out later. It’s fun and exciting that way, at least in my mind.
So what I am leading to is that I am a contradiction, at once rigid yet spontaneous. That is my imperfection, I think that it is what makes me, me.
