FLAWLESS

A dear friend was oh so gratious to point out ONE (LOL) typo in yesterday's post...she so kind...hahah! Anyway, she as most everyone else close to me knows...I've got this thing about revealing my flaws. SOOOOO... in light of that.

I hearby declare today FLAWLESS day; the day where you can reveal your flaws and they be deemed FLAWLESS...HOORAYYYY!

Finally I'll share a (secret) poem I wrote about how I feel (felt) about my imperfections. Enjoy..and while you're enjoying think about your secret flaws and share them with us..

Better Than Me

"I'm the best in the business," is what my dad used to say
and a phrase that's beginning to define my psyche.
Caught in the who I think I am as reality tear at my flesh
revealing my imperfections .
Knowing if they knew the flaws that lie beneath
it would bring thoughts to their minds that they're better than me.
Talk how I talk, better than me!
Do how I do, better than me!
Teach how I teach, better than me!
Love how I love, better than me!
Making me wish it were I who was better than me.

p.s. If there are ANY errors or typo within this text... SO WHAT...(lol)

Love justmewriting.

Nothing like misspelling the sixth word in the entry. Knock out the error right away; hell, there's only one way from down, and that's UP!

Your friend seems very inspired and insightful. Dare I say borderline genius? But, that is just the humble opinion of a curious reader...

I'd also like to note your issues with space. Albeit a grammatical fool, you have also angered the space gods by throwing a period (.) a 'splash' too far into the obis. Had it been someone else authoring this piece, I would chalk it up to artistic license, but because it is you, I simply write it off as yet another imperfection.

Lastly, if we were perfect from the start, life would be far too boring. So I'm here to celebrate ALL of your lovely imperfections.

All I can say is PMS.I don't know if any of you women could feel my pain but the raging hormones makes me an emotional wreck.I become whinny. I start to overevaluate everything and start feeling unloved and unappreciated. I must learn how to control my emotions.Thank GOD that my husband know the symptoms and try to make a special effort to appease me during that gloomy period.

Keep it up baby... I'll be reading more often. No typos on deck here...lmao

Thank you so much for sharing this...Actually, lately I've been struggling with a similar awareness- letting fear make my decision about how open to be with certain people I think highly of...worrying that if I show my true desires and feelings, I'll be rejected...But then I'm not living my life as who I really am! Why do we so often value people's view of us more highly than we value being who we really are!? Maybe with our support of one another we can be bolder with our inner selves...

palebleu: all I can say is YES... all of that is so true. Self awarness and ACCEPTANCE is crucial in our existance and progress as individuals, but I think it's something we grow into... like everything else...we have to LEARN to love and value ourselves.

you're also on point with the support of one another too. Too many times we spend too much time knocking each other down.. not knowing that as we lift, we're lifted; something else we struggling to learn, but we'll get it together TOGETHER..

much luv and thank you for your comment. KEEP ON KEEPING ON!

dc:..LOL. yes...you are partially responsible I really wouldn't have known about doing this stuff...so I thank you for all the info. my (blog) identity however...is another story...hahahahaha!
