I was nominated for The Flawesome Award by Kate at Kate Days a Week and by Duncan at Tales of a Bearded Man. I am honored to have been nominated by these two amazing bloggers. They are both 2 of my favorites so be sure to go show their blogs some love!
Now on to the Award:
This award was created by the amazing Sophia Ismaa. She wanted to create an award that celebrates our faults and this is definitely an award that I can support.
Here is Sophia’s description of this award:
“It’s time to celebrate the flaws that make you awesome.
How many times do we see an award that celebrates all things bright and shiny and sunny in a person? How often do we forget that our weaknesses can be a strength? Our flaws make us human, our flaws tell us more about who we are, and in turn we turn those flaws into awesome strengths. In short, our flaws make us #flawesome.”
Here are the rules:

3 Things that Make Me Flawesome!
1. Stubbornness is not always a bad thing!
I have always been stubborn and some would even say “hard-headed”. Although this has gotten me into some pretty precarious situations, it has also served me well. Being stubborn has helped me survive some awful things in life.
Yes, being stubborn means that I do not always make the wisest decisions. I think the key to making this a positive is learning how to use it to my advantage.
2. Punctuality can be a negative?
It can be if it means that you create anxiety for yourself because of it! I used to get so worked up with worry over being late that I would arrive everywhere 45 minutes early. Otherwise, I would be a nervous mess by the time I got there.
The good thing is that I was never late for work and my employers knew that they could count on me to be there on time. I developed a great reputation for my punctuality when I was working.
I still have to make sure that I am not creating anxiety for myself from the added pressure but I still cannot tolerate being late!
3. I wear my feelings on my sleeve.
This is probably my most annoying flaw because it means that I can’t hide how I feel very well. If I am angry and try to talk…I will cry! (this only makes me more angry and it gets worse!) I seriously and an open book with my emotions because it is written all over my face. Sometimes, I just wish I wasn’t so transparent.
But I also have to admit that this another thing that has served me well. I do not conform to wearing a “mask” to cover my feelings and emotions. What you see is what you get the majority of the time. I hope that makes me more approachable and real in a world that seems to celebrate the “fakeness” of others.
