Our shadows give us definition

This letter “a” is pure white and perfect.

It rests against a pure white and perfect background.

The reason I can see it is because it has a shadow—a dark side.

I can appreciate its gentle curves and elegant beauty because of its contrasts.

I have my friend, Ellie, to thank for this insight. Our dark sides give us definition. Without contrasts our gentle curves and elegant beauty might pass unnoticed.

Whatever your shadow side might be—maybe you hold grudges, have “foot in mouth disease,” run away from conflict, or overstay your welcome at parties—embrace it. We can see your beauty all the more because of it.
