The Word Flawless BY A GIRL WHO ISN'T The definition of flawless is having no defects or faults but in simpler terms perfect. Being flawed is not a bad thing and I don't honestly know who decided that it was. Maybe it was the magazines that photo shopped women to what they think is perfect or the word "plus size" that ousted girls pass a size 8 to not just be models but "plus sized" models.. Whoever declared that being flawless was the "it" thing needs to go to another planet because that's not living. Living includes scars, mistakes, flawed nights and sometimes tears but it also includes finding happiness in a flawed world. The most amazing part is finding happiness in love within your own flawed self. That's the purpose of life: to love your flawed self and inspire others to learn the same thing. Positivity makes the world a brighter place. Spread that and watch new things grow and blossem. Being flawless is like being a barbie doll. Imagine the whole world full of barbie dolls.... No that's boring and just plain weird. Flawed means imperfect but in other worlds beautiful. Sarah Vowell said, “We are flawed creatures, all of us. Some of us think that means we should fix our flaws. But get rid of my flaws and there would be no one left.” Remember this the next time you doubt how amazing you truly are or change yourself because of what some else thinks. R | R • NOVEMBER 2016
