Quick quick! skim this blog and find the juicy bits!
no one really has the time to read blogs.
or status updates.
unless its about how many friends we have and how popular we are on twitter.
the number of likes we have on our status may actually correlate to how up our own arse we are.
sometimes the truth hurts. yet it takes a brave person to stand up and face the truth. And sometimes we just have to ask ourselves how truthful we are being with ourselves. And others.
What if the Gym you frequent is actually being investigated for drugs and money laundering?
What if the Doctor you know and trust has been betraying patient confidentiality amongst friends who actually now know you were raped as a teenager?
What if one of your peers told others that you were ‘needy’ or that your illness is ‘all in your head’.
It hurts doesn’t it?
This is not personal.
If anything it may shine a little light on who we are. We are all human. We make mistakes and we often say things we really shouldn’t say.
Its what we do with our flaws that makes us the person we truly are.
I have flaws. Lots of them. However, I’ve learned a lot about myself just by facing my flaws.
I am not just a Teacher. I teach. And I love to be taught.
I am not just another random photographer. I catch life moments on my Canon.
I am not just a writer. I dance with words and have a flair for expression.
I am not just a Mom. Or a Wife. Or just Rachel. I am a human who has been given an opportunity to face a disease and although I have been “off work” ~ I am almost ready to get back into the saddle and ride.
I’ve also turned negatives into positives.
I’ve turned any neediness into needing to give back to our community. I’ve raised money instead of spending it. I’ve quietly helped abused kids instead of being one.
I’ve also discovered the best therapy.
Looking into the mirror and loving the uniqueness staring right back at me.
Warts and all.
(Okay, I don’t really have any warts….but wouldn’t that be interesting gossip?! :)
