My first thought when getting the notification that the lovely Liz from Kentucky was “ooh tagged – she is a gem” then I opened the link. “Flawesome Award? What the fudge is this . . . I like it”. I’ve never heard of it but I love these kind of posts and I am so thankful for the tag. If you don’t know Elizabeth go and check her out, she is funny, insightful, informative and has a tiny obsession with Ryan “Hot Stuff” Reynolds . . . who knows why!

With this award, we are reminded that our flaws are unique things that can give us strength, and make us awesome.

I am going to struggle with this post I think, not because I think I am perfect and flawless – because I don’t. More because I struggle to highlight flaws in myself as I always try to turn even the negative things into positive. Which is the aspect of this post so I guess I just need to suck it up and start my usual ramblings.
Struggles with being impatient.
I have always been a fantasist. Dreaming of a better life, job, dream. Thinking – when I do this it will mean I can do this, this and that. Which would be awesome. But sadly my life hasn’t gone like that. I become very impatient to want to have that end goal NOW and skip the years of slog it will cost and cause me to get there. But with this is mind I have been able to look at this, process and make smaller targets to build to the bigger picture. Rather than jumping straight for the end goal and getting disheartened when I fail. Instead I can go step by step and build mini victories.
Being in Control.
I have a tendency to be in control, as much as I don’t worry or panic about anything. I still like to know what is going on and the gossip or info. It’s not a great thing because obviously because as soon as I am out of the loop or not able to get the information or knowledge I need I get filled with anxiety and worry that I am going to miss out or not know the answer. But on the flip side what makes the FLAWESOME is that fact I am very observant and always listening. (I’d make a great Spy). Which means even if I am not involved I am gather info. You know upon reading that back it sounds very shifty. Honestly I am a good guy!
Caring & Kind.
Wait what? How is that a flaw? You are right is it a flaw? Well in my case I think it can be. I care too much, I want everyone to be happy – even if that means putting my happiness at risk to allow someone else to be happy – I will do that. I always have. It is something I need to work on, everyone deserves to be happy – even me. Not to say I am not, it boils down to priorities doesn’t it. Looking after number one while also caring and spreading love to others.
