I never want to be described as “perfect”. To me, that is an insult. Everyone has their flaws. Everyone could improve something in their lives. Everyone is going through a constant state of change in order to become more themselves. So my goal for this post is to show my imperfections through my goal setting. I am going to be honest and I hope you will not judge me for the things I am about to say…
I struggle with insecurities. I am not perfect. My blog may portray me in perfect little dresses with perfect little matching accessories with a perfect white smile. But I am not perfect. Nor do I want to pretend I am. I am just like you. The things I have been through in the past have contributed to my current insecurities. So instead of living with it I have made a conscious decision to do something about it. I am looking my fears dead in the eye and overcoming them.

One of my many imperfections is I have poor body image. Meaning, I know to the common eye I may look like I am in shape. But deep inside I am my biggest critic. Unfortunately, due to society, I think this is a problem the majority of women have these days. I am insecure of my cellulite, stretch marks, and little pooch lol. So what better way to face my fears than to make myself stand on a stage, with bright lights shining on me, while i wear the itsy-bitsy tiniest bikini in the world! I decided to do something about it. Face my fears. Already, I feel so much better about my body because I appreciate it. I appreciate every little change that is made because I realize now the hard work it takes. I am willing to put time in to change it because my body is aging with each second that goes by. I set a BIG goal: to go from 24% body fat down to 12% which is stage ready. It scares me, but I accept the challenge if it means creating a new body image that makes me happy! Look good, feel good.
If your dreams dont scare you, they are not big enough.
So the point I am trying to get across is to not let your Fears tear you down. It gets in the way of your happiness. Instead- BE BRAVE. Do something about it. Make a list of your imperfections and either accept them with a smile or take action to change them! You should be in a constant state of re-assessing your life and taking the steps to grow. So step up! Make things happen! There is no better day than today 🙂
