Strengths, Weaknesses & An Unfinished, Open Book

I know my weaknesses and I embrace them. I will be the first person to point out all of my weaknesses. 

Math? Even using a calculator, I can't do it.
Patience with others? Virtually non-existent.
Doing things in a timely manner, including being on time? Don't hold your breath.
Being organized and on top of things? HA!
Domestic activities (cooking, cleaning, decorating, etc)? Double HA!
Spelling? Spell check is my BFF.
Giving advice and comforting people? I become the most awkward person ever.

I could go on and on about my weaknesses. There are MANY. Trust me.

I do have a lot of strengths...creativity, gratitude, open minded, integrity, kindness, forever an optimist and seeing the good in any situation. For every weakness, I have a strength. It's a nice balance.

We all have different strengths and weaknesses. No one is perfect. I realize this and I don't do anything to hide my weaknesses. All aspects of my personality, who I am as a person-good and bad- this is what makes me who I am, what makes me unique.

While I love myself, I realize there are A TON of people who do not like me. I will never be everything to everyone, and because of that, some people won't like it and won't like me. I am ok with this.
I know there are a lot of people who do not agree with how I act, who I am, the way I do things, decisions I make... I know people question me, question who I am, a lot of the time. People know what I want them to know about me. Yes, I am an open book...but my book is still being written and some chapters have yet to be published. The only person who knows my entire story- the full, true story- is me.

People need to remember that.
