Get ready to be flawsome!
What are your flaws? No, really! Think about it, what are your flaws? Many times we try to forget our flaws and focus only on the things we like about ourselves, but today, we’re celebrating the by being flawsome!
Something that is totally awesome, but not without its flaws
To be flawless and awesome all at the same time
Flaws are a blessing in disguise! They add character and uniqueness to us. One person’s flaw is another person’s treasure. We all have physical traits that we don’t like about ourselves or that others have teased or even bullied us about. Sometimes there’s no changing them, so we may as well embrace them. Personally, people have made fun of my forehead (which would be better described as a five head) my teeth (which favor a bunny) my size (I was a 5 foot 4 3rd grader) and my personality (I’m a shy girl, with a free spirit – let’s just say I march to the beat of a different drum that happens to be on crack), but I am not ashamed of these things, in fact, I have learned to embrace them. They’re a part of me.
What got me thinking on the subject of flaws? Last week something really exciting happened, my family brought home a foster dog, named Gabriella. She was abused and a little scared of people, but we bonded instantly. As I was thinking about what to write for today, I looked at her; so content, shamelessly taking over my bed. As I told you, she was abused. She has 2 nips in her ears. I don’t know how she got them, but it definitely doesn’t take away from her cute factor. I was lost in thought as I watched her. The last thing on her mind were the nips in her ears. She was probably just happy to be out of the kennel in a safe home. If only we could be like Gabby, spending our time thinking about things more important than wishing we could trade our imperfections for thigh gaps and abs. Looking at each area of our body with disgust; critiquing every pore, every blemish, every hair out of place. Let’s be more like Gabby, the flawsome dog!
I let people put me down about these physical traits of mine. I eventually bought into the ridicule and became very self conscious about them, but here I am today five head and all saying enough!
You must come to realize that our flaws are what make us different and simultaneously bring us together. Without your flaws, you couldn’t be flawsome! The more you accept them, the more you’ll realize, they aren’t flaws at all.
Live a life that’s muzic to your ears!
