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?
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. 🦋❤️
