I was privileged enough to be a part of a campaign initiated by my good friend Tammy from The Life of the Live.Love.Laugh Girl called #ImNotPerfect a declaration of embracing imperfection and this could not come in a perfect time. I think that every one has their moments of not feeling pretty enough, not being confident enough, or simply just not doing enough… sad to say nothing is ever enough for anyone.
I cannot help but be critical of myself and let us face it there is always a lot of room for self doubt when you have a low self esteem. They just creep right in and before you know it, it eats you up from the inside. I have been a countless victim of this scenario over and over. I know you should give yourself more credit, you can do it but the truth is it is easier said than done.
I just think that people need that release, that opportunity and chance to acknowledge their imperfections and hardships. It does not make them less of a person for doing so. We are allowed to commit mistakes but the important thing is we learn from it and eventually overcome it. We all deal with it differently and we want to acknowledge our imperfections and sometimes that is all it takes to be able to move forward and get on with our lives.
So here I am declaring my imperfections
Thank you so much Tammy for such an empowering and therapeutic project. It was such a pleasure to do this project and you made me write again. Cheers to you and to the rest of the lovely lot who has supported this cause.
