It seems like every time I turn around these days I hear the song “All of Me” by John Legend. My favorite line is …”I love your curves and all your edges, all your perfect imperfections.” That is exactly right! Perfect imperfections! Ladies…I’m talking to you here…mostly because men just don’t grow up with the same messages that we do. Our imperfections, all the little things that make us different and unique, that set us apart from the rest of the group. These things that we usually grow up disliking about ourselves (most likely because we got teased about them as children at some point). These wondrous, memorable and sometimes quirky things about us we often dislike and just wish to blend in and be like everyone else. A crooked smile, or a snort when you laugh really hard, freckles or a space between your front teeth. These are the things that our friends and lovers enjoy the most about us! The things that make us US!
It has taken me far too long to become ok with my own unique version of quirky …in fact sometimes I still struggle with some of the things that I see myself doing on film. These are the joys of being in a business where there are constantly cameras and video cameras going. It has gotten a lot better over the years…BUT I cannot tell you the number of times that fans of Monica would bring in a photo to have her sign that they had taken of her at an expo where I was doing something utterly ridiculous in the background!! It makes me break into a sweat thinking about how many walls of fame are secretly my walls of shame!! Lol!
Make your day Amazing!
