Sometimes our shortcomings are actually what make us special.

The video below is a great example of why we should not conform to what is “normal” or “pretty.” The pug, Loca, is not an efficient runner in terms of speed and grace in getting from point A to point B, but he is the best runner for creativity and making people smile. Everything is relative. Therefore, we should not look at our shortcomings as disappointing features of ourselves, but rather something to celebrate. Go Loca!!
