Perfectly Imperfect

  • Blondie Paulushat Zitat gemachtvor 4 Monaten
    When you have a difference, adapting to situations is a skill that you learn from a very young age. So when things happen now, and there might be a bit of panic, I’m able to think outside the box a lot more easily than other people because I have learned there is always more than one way of doing something.

    In sport they always say, ‘Control the controllables.’ In these pages, I have tried to capture the story of my controllables, the things I did, and still do, to get me where I am today: comfortable in myself. Embracing my difference, seeing my arm as my superpower. To track the ways I’ve managed various aspects of my life, in the hope that they might help you to feel how I feel today. Happy, strong, not afraid, not alone, finding the power in my difference, embracing who I am.

    Perfectly Imperfect.

    Love,

    These were all things that I kept in. I couldn’t tell anyone because I felt like no one would understand
