Saturday's Saying.....

"Flawsome!"

embracing your flaws and knowing that you are awesome regardless.

Everyone has flaws, no one is perfect....but not all embrace those flaws.  Especially our young people.  Everyone thinks they need to be "perfect".  I fell into that trap for a long time....so far into that trap that at the age of 30 I ended up in an ER room where they thought I was having a heart attack.  Told that I needed to quit being super woman, told that if I didn't stop trying to do everything and be the best at it, I would be back there with a real heart attack.  Oh my gosh...I would have to admit that I am not perfect, I do have flaws/limits....But right then, I quit a very lucrative job, quit a couple boards I was on, and just became me.  Took me about another 20 years before I totally embraced that I am not perfect, I do have flaws....and I am FLAWSOME~! but I am here.


Who else joins me in being Flawsome~!??

Paulette

Paulette, It is over achievers that are like that. We want everything perfect. I am afraid I am like that. I have to remind myself to relax and take it easy. Thank you for the sentiment. Edwina Brown

I can so totally relate to this - having had to do so myself. You can only do so much for everyone else and try and do everything perfectly until your body, your mind, your spirit - just caves in and says, "I can't do anymore!"

Cindy Keller said...

What a great idea, Paulette! I think most of us are flawesome, if we'd just admit to it. Actually, I think that's better than being perfect.

THIS IS SOOOOOOOO true. Had the same thing happen to me about that same age. I went to urgent care and naturally I was symptomatic since I thought the practically ripped my shirt off me to do the EKG being that I was a type I diabetic having chest pain. Then to just get yelled at that I was tachy and stressed when I felt like I was being assaulted. But apparently when you don't sleep much, are stressed, drink a lot of caffeine your body does some weird stuff. It's hard to train yourself when you are a type A to RELAX. I REALLY have to think about it and actually schedule time for it. And letting go and my parents COMPLAIN about my house being a MESS!!!

Oh Paulette, I can so relate to your story! I tried to do everything too, at my last job I ended up doing the work that 5 women were previously doing,until it got to the point my body could no longer bear the load.Ended up having to retire at only 52, and now I have numerous health problems, including two chronic pain conditions.
I love the sentiment and join you in being Flawsome, love it, thank you.xx
