I bought a used car, and found it had some major issues and I realized it's all a gamble. Like cars, we all have flaws. You just have to find something that is very lovable in the car/person, and accept the flaws as part of the package. And hope they will do the same. Spend time with your used car, get to know it face to face, instead of just an idea of it. Gamble. Use your head AND your heart. Take walks in solitude and reflect. Don't be afraid to fail often.
I wrote this little song to reflect this metaphor.
We all have something broken
We are all used cars
But we have beauty that diffuses
the crunched bumper that opposes and confuses.
We all have a hidden
treasure in our cabin
It will make them stick around
with the lemon that they've found.
Much love to us used cars!
