Learning to embrace our flaws is always something to highlight. There is a Japanese art of repairing broken pottery called Kintsugi. The art form embraces the flaws, fills them with powdered gold (or silver, or platinum), and highlights the cracks. As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise.
I like to leave the house with as little as possible. I hate carrying it. I hate stowing it awkwardly. And I hate the expectant glances a large purse brings. "No, I did not bring your coloring book in here."
