At 5am this morning, I was wide awake thinking of blog post ideas - how random?! Fast forward an hour and I was back to my usual cosy, snoring self. For some reason, I was thinking about what makes me - me. I had been scrolling through my bloglovin feed as I was wide awake and spotted Emma's post on 'What makes you, you?'. It got me thinking of the time as a youngster when I would like in the mirror and think 'How weird that's me - why was I chosen to be me out of all the people in the world?' - it's ok, you can call me a strange child if you wish. Which brings me to today's post - I am happy to be me. After a lot of time wishing I could look like someone else, BE someone else - I am finally happy in who I am as a person and I wouldn't change it for the world. So, me being me, warts and all - I wanted to point out some flaws I have - but look, I'm still happy!
My co-ordination skills are horrendous. I cannot tie shoelaces and I am 21. I cannot reverse park. I once reversed my car into a tree. I cannot work out fiddly things and I will push doors that say pull. I spill things and make a mess. I put pressure on myself to look perfect, when it's never going to happen. I'm fidgety. I struggle to watch a film as I get bored. I can never quite understand the storyline either - I'm that annoying person who always asks - Who's that? I make a mess. My boyfriend would say my flaw is my mess, I love to dump things everywhere and worry about it later. I prefer nights in to nights out. I'm quiet. I'm never the centre of attention - I would hate it. Being sung happy birthday by even two people is enough to make me blush. I hate having my photo taken. I wear my hair messy because I can't be bothered.
After writing that random segment of all the things that I tend to do wrong and never quite seem to get right - I am still happy in who I am. I would now like to take the time to apologise if this was a cheesy post, I can smell the edam from here! I hope that you liked this post and I would encourage you to do the same, I'd love to read - plus I'm nosy.
What makes you, you? x
