“BE HAPPY WITH BEING YOU”
I am sitting here watching Greys Anatomy, bowl of popcorn next to me, baby asleep and a face mask on. Finally relaxing after a long week. A week that has pushed me to my limits. A week that has made me think about my flaws and my strengths. A week that has made me proud of who I am.
Lets talk about flaws. Yes yes…flaws. The thing we try to avoid or disregard when someone tells us we are doing something wrong. Do you know what your flaw is? Have you ever sat down and really thought about the stuff that is considered flaws? Well that is what I did this week.
If you know me personally than you know I am the farthest thing from perfect. Heck I could give you a list of people that don’t like me. Telling you right now I already know I am the girl who forgets plans, cancels because something honestly has come up, I am a terrible texter, over analyze, and take things to heart.
I have never been the girl that fits in. I have never been the girl who gets a long with everyone and has all the friends. I have never been the girl that was invited. For years that bothered me. For years I felt like I was the problem. For years I would go to bed replaying everything I did that day wondering where I went wrong….did i say the right thing? Was I weird? Was I funny enough? Did I wear the right thing?
Have you ever thought something about yourself and someone you knew said it out loud? I have. That was the day my flaws truly became a reality. In that moment I decided to embrace my insecurities, to make them into a positive. Now don’t get me wrong I have bad days and I let my insecurities get the best of me by over thinking about my flaws but now is the time to try to turn them into my strengths.
Flaws to Strengths:
List of those that don’t like me ————- Have true friends forever
Terrible Texter ————— Making plans with my true peeps
Over Analyze————— Makes me a good worker
Takes things to heart —————– Cares deeply about others
Girl that never fits it ————-I have people that love me
By making my flaws to strengths I am not giving an excuse to being a shitty person, I am making those negative things and turning them into something beautiful. I am becoming a strong woman in a time where even though we are “pro woman rights” we are still in a society that woman are pitted against each other. The society we live in tells us who we are or who we need to be or who we need to be better than that we forgot how to just be us. The person who God created and molded so perfectly in His image.
Are we going to have bad days? Hell yes we are. If I could tell you everything that has gone wrong this week or even this year you would not believe it was true. The beauty in things not going the way we want is the fact that we grow as a human and we become the person we dreamed of being when we were little.
Never let anyone define you. I was once the “sensitive dramatic girl” and maybe people still see me that way but in my eyes I am now the woman who works hard, fights for her family, loves so deep and never gives up.
Who are you? Who do you want to be? What are your flaws that you are going to turn to strengths? Tell me. I am here. I will listen. You. Yes you. You are not alone. You are not a failure. You are not a mistake. You have a purpose. A purpose so big that God took the time to create you. Don’t give up. Breathe. Just breathe.
Thank you guys for reading! Hope you guys are having an amazing week!
Love you all <333
