Being Me

They say when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. But what about when life gives you a 30 staple scar up your stomach, a palm sized 3rd degree burn on your thigh, a less severe, but equally as painful burn on your chest & the will to live a wonderful life despite trauma and set backs? Well I call that being me. I call these my perfect imperfections; because every bad  experience pushes you to grow and truly pushes you to discover a little bit more about who you are and what you have inside of you. Every scar I’ve gained (that’s right, I look it as a win) has built my character, my positivity and my drive to be the best that I can be. That is because a scar is a reminder that you beat whatever was trying to hurt you. This blog is not a way for me to reminisce about all of the ‘bad things’ I’ve been through. No, it is an outlet for me to express how I have moved forward, how I’ve learned to conquer pain, self doubt, and live with a changed perspective on life through embracing my perfect imperfections.

Life is truly about the highs and lows we encounter, and I like anyone else has had their fair share of lows throughout every predicament I’ve been in. But with every waking moment, I decide to be a glass half full kind of person. I’m that girl that spills things, drops things & then trips over the thing that she dropped! But I am also the girl that laughs at the whirlpool of experiences life throws at me. I want to write about struggle as much as I want to write about happiness and I want to reminisce as much as I want to get lost in dreaming about the future. I want people like me, who have been through some shit to see how growing through their insecurities, their scars & their burns can make them proud of their perfect imperfections too.
