Probably my favorite quote from Configured is this:
This world is both beautiful and broken. Make more beautiful moments than broken ones.
The quote actually began as something similarI said to a friend who was enduring a tragic time in her life. When I got to the point in Configured where Avlyn’s mother tells her this I could not think of better words than those I said to my friend.
This world is a broken, broken place. It is. We hurt each other, beat one another down and try to get ahead without thoughts of how it will affect those around us. This world is also a beautiful place. One of love, caring, empathy and self-sacrifice.
The two live at odds with each other. All the time. Every day.
I challenge you to be beautiful in everything you do. Don’t let the brokenness win.
