CourageToTellYou.com is about encouragement for all kinds of insecurities or issues that people feel they have. I call them “perfect imperfections.” It might be something as simple as one’s discomfort about the bump on their nose or something as debilitating as a personality disorder like depression or attention deficit disorder. Whatever it may be, however little or big, I’ve created this community to encourage and help people see that the imperfections are what make us who we are and through shared resources, articles and photographs of inspiration, we can all embrace our “perfect imperfections.” – Terry-Anne
Throughout my years of living in and traveling to various countries around the world, one thing remained the same across cultures. Nobody was or is perfect. Everyone’s dealing with some sort of issue about themselves. We all have flaws and for reasons unbeknownst to us, we have junk in the trunk that we were born with or have developed at some point in our lives. They feel like interruptions, right? I hear you loud and clear. When you hear my story (which I am writing as we speak), you may find encouragement and a sense of peace in hearing why I believe we have been created exactly as our maker intended for us to be. I call it “perfectly imperfect.”
Have you found the courage to embrace your imperfect self yet? Right at this moment, regardless of your issues or doubts, tell yourself; “I am perfectly imperfect and I’m going to be okay!”
Weight, anxiety, depression, shyness, that bump on your nose, whatever. WHATEVER! Don’t let it stop you from following your dreams and being the person you were meant to be.
There’s only one way to go from here and that’s forward. From this day on, make yourself a promise to put your thoughts on paper. Download and print the daily journal note cards to encourage you on this courageous journey. Don’t be discouraged by the actions of others who don’t understand or lack the ability or effort to support what you’re going through. You can do this!
Please join the Courage To Tell You page at Facebook and follow the tweets for a little inspiration. There are also free daily courage journal cards that you can print out each day. I’ve created them in 4×6 high resolution size so you could even have them printed at a photo lab (Walgreens, Costco, etc) and write on them with a fine point Sharpie and then keep them in a 4×6 photo album to reflect upon.
May you find a little courage, wisdom, insight… whatever it may be, to remind you that you are perfectly imperfect, exactly the way you were created to be! Embrace it!
