“Your message, your ministry, your influence is built from your flaws.
People relate to HUMANITY…not perfection.” ~Mandy Hale
I’m not perfect.
- I drink too much coffee
- I don’t always eat right
- I get angry and sometimes show it in ugly ways
- I don’t always exercise when I should
- I can complicate instead of simplify
- I want to control everything from time to time
- I sometimes judge others harshly
- I can be OCD a lot of the time (but I’m better than I was in my 20s)
When I decided to start my blog and share some of the life lessons I have learned along my journey I knew that I would also be putting myself up for scrutiny.
And that’s okay.
What’s not okay is for anyone to think that I have solved all of my problems, living a life that is free from stress and issues.
When I get “that’s not very Zen of you” or “you are better than that” it makes me wonder why people would think for one moment that I’m super human.
Then I remember…..because I put myself out to the world and the world is holding me to a certain standard.
So I stand before you today to say I’m just like you, I have flaws and issues, I make lots of mistakes and all of those things make me human.
I want to share what I have learned with all of you to help you along your journey, to show you that there is someone else struggling with the same issues and to let you know there is a way to get through it.
Right or wrong, if my words and my work help just one person then I’m a happy girl! But don’t think I have it all figured out because just like you I’m still learning. I’m learning from my mistakes, my triumphs and I’m learning from all of you.
When you sign up and become a part of our community, I know that you connect with my words and the lessons I put out in the world. When you reply to my email or send me an email, I learn how I have touched your life.
When you comment on our FB page or share one of my post I know that you find value in my words.
THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart and soul. And thank you for accepting me, imperfections and all.
I love you all!
