Flawsome

It’s time for a new word discovery. This one made me think, enough so to dedicate a post about it. I wonder how this word makes you feel?

Flawsome:

An individual who embraces their “flaws” and knows they are awesome regardless.

Mmmmh, there is much that could be said. Thoughts and theories could spread out in various directions, pretty much like it can with anything, but what is our true interpretation, our unique perception of the word “Flawsome”? Is it personal, do we relate it to ourselves, or is it merely just another word?

In the case that we relate it to ourselves, I think we are often too hard on us, perhaps even pushing ourselves to unhealthy realities and expectations. Why, because we feel that being perfect is what the world expects of us. Because we need to keep up with a patience, losing, society that more and more views us as an inconvenience. A society where we need to perform at top level. Maybe you are only as good as your last outstanding deed goes, feeling you have to prove yourself each and every day. Perhaps it is hard for you to embrace your flaws and give yourself a break. Perhaps you are setting unrealistic goals for yourself. But how could you accept those flaws if nobody else has. I hear your struggles and I am no stranger to the pressures.

You heard the saying that nobody is perfect and we are all flawed. We all carry our battle scars, our suitcase of experiences, but what if we could look at this a little less like a flaw? If we exuded patience and felt confident, knowing that despite not being perfect, we still know a thing or two which makes us pretty amazing. We would forgive ourselves which in return would lift stressful mountains off of our shoulders. We would be more patient with ourselves, perhaps even with others because we’d understand just how hard it can be.

They say animals sense a persons soul and know if they are good or bad. I am happy that despite my flaws I can still be awesome enough for butterflies to land on me and animals feeling drawn to me.

I hope you have learned to embrace your awesome, because you are simple amazing and one of a kind. 🦋❤️

Who am I, and why I write. I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I am the one, holding on to the silver lining when the skies are gray. I’m a believer that nothing is coincidence, but that everything has purpose. I’ve made my mistakes, don’t we all, but I see them as growing pains and they are a part of who I am today. I have lost myself in order to find myself, and I still do from time to time, but in a good way. I’m a big child who laughs until my belly hurts when life wants to be serious. Career wise: I’ve been there, done that, and I took “The jump” off the hamster wheel in an effort to change my future. I didn’t land all that soft, but I can say that I’m still proud to have found the courage to do it. Coming full circle, I had it all, and yet I was lonely and had nothing. Today I choose to be a collector of moments and I chase memories, instead of the material stuff. Less is more, and the motto is quality over quantity. You’d be amazed at how freeing it can be. I see myself as a free spirit that believes in an unconventional lifestyle. Somehow I go against the grain most of the times, not to rebel, but because it feels right to stay true to my unique and authentic self. It takes courage, and you often stand alone, but if you dare, you soon realize that it is the only way if you don’t want to lose who you are. Just like most, my past wasn’t easy and I come from a life that didn’t always give me the opportunity to be heard. Few related and even fewer cared to take the time. But that’s the past and it’s history, the future hasn’t happened and the “NOW” is truly all we ever have. In the end we all have a story to tell, and we all seek to be understood. We all yearn to be heard and accepted and still life is hard and our path is full of stumbling blocks. If we can see the lessons in adversity we may realize that the toughest moments are often our greatest teachers. There is a reason for the saying that the stars can’t shine without darkness, and it might be darkness that will show you the light.
It took a series of (un)fortunate events, to learn to glow through the pain, to learn how to dance in the rain. I believe in Magic and wonder, and the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. As an empath this old soul often feels a little too much, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Today, I am here to tell my story because I believe that it can help others. It is my hope to bring inspiration and strengths to you, while showing you that it can be done. I know you are out there, and I know you are suffering in silence. I am here to tell you that you are not alone, and your voice is being heard loud and clear. Hang on and be strong, transformation is yours. 
In light and love....Rhapsody Bohème 💙🦋

    1. Thank you Irene. Sorry for the delay and falling behind answering comments. Trying to get this business going can be overwhelming and I got back and forth, simply not knowing which site to use and knowing so little about it all. Thank you for your kind words. You are the best my dear friend ❤️

      1. I know you understand Irene. I just hate to keep important people waiting while they took time out of their day to stop by here and give me feedback. It means so much to me. Have a great weekend dear friend❤️

  1. Yes we are beautiful creatures dear lady, each and every one of us ❤️
    The journey is to ensure that by being poked, prodded and tested at many points along our road, that we will eventually ‘see’ inside, past those fears and understand that by enduring all of this we will find that love and happiness we all search for…that ability to love ourselves ❤️
    Great post and I’m also glad to be flawsome, being able to appreciate exactly what we are ❤️

    1. Beautifully said my dear friend and filled with profound wisdom and experiences. Someone special once told me that we are constantly tested and it could signify all the obstacles along the way. I think some of the real success lies in seeing those as lessons instead of letting them defy us. In the end flawsome is pretty awesome and unique. ❤️

      1. Most certainly dear lady, they are the making of us by being exactly what our hearts require to break free. When I finally saw that ‘we’, and yes I said we, actually create the very circumstances to break free of our fears, and in doing so love the one person we have always struggled with….us 💜
        I was so astounded that I had been allowed to see something so wonderful. so perfect for who we are…it could only be created by an unconditional heart…but to get there we have to pull away all those conditions that bind us, to find that beauty waiting gently inside to become that love and happiness we have always sought 💜
        May that perfect flawsome guide you ever inwards 💜

      2. I can completely relate to that and I have been in the process ever since to remove these conditions and kick convention to the curb. Many don’t understand and it could be viewed as rebellious, but in reality it is just returning to my true nature, myself and who I always was before society forced their rules and guidelines onto me. ❤️🦋
