    Your Hosts             Hosts TWSS Thank You Heart   Thanks for sharing your “fun” with us! 😉 #TWSS Pick Your Own Quote This week we asked you to choose your own quote, we cannot wait to see what you picked!      lines Frida Kahlo| Strange company SOURCE I’m kooky. I’m silly. I’m flawed. I’m slightly strange (or squirrelly?) I’m me. I wondered in the past am I that aberrant- why am I always singled out for being silly? “You’re silly, Dean!” Is that bad? Is it wrong? To want to laugh and make others laugh, could this be a flaw? There were times when I would withhold my silly. There were also times when I was surrounded by many, but felt alone.   Something bizarre happened, I found out I wasn’t alone. I met someone who felt just like me. At first we both put up our guard, we only displayed our best traits. We grew closer. We laughed, we got silly, we shared our flaws. And then something even more bizarre happened… my flaws were now called beautiful scars were healed with love my silly was brilliant! We both let our guard down. We were free. Hours were (and are) spent talking, healing, loving, and caring. There is no longer a facade, the walls have come down.     We all have flaws, quirks, oddities that weave us together and make a beautiful mess The older I grow, the more I know I’m not alone. The people who have always been there are still there and there are more people out there I need to know. They too are not perfect. We’re not perfect. We’re perfect enough. Yes, it’s true, I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you. Untitled   If you’re out there 🙂

  1. Definitely this lesson comes with age and living life. When you’re young, you want to fit in. And then you realize that fitting in is over-rated. It’s much better to life free. I hope my kids understand this sooner rather than later.

    1. I hope my kids understand that sooner too. I actually think my daughter (13yo) has somewhat figured that out. She is so much more advanced in knowledge than I was at her age.

  2. There’s definitely been parts of me I’ve always wondered – “is there anyone else like this on earth?” I figure now with Google, I can probably find out. It’s more fun to see these traits in my most special friends.

    1. You’ve got to love Google. 🙂 Also, Twitter, because I believe it was Twitter that brought us together. I think you and I quite similar. 🙂

  3. love the quote you picked…I totally agree with your post. We are all so different, unique, weird, flawed, strange and that;s what makes us so amazing and perfect. I embrace my kookiness and weirdness, I let my freak flag fly and those who love me waves theirs too…we are all so awesome because of it.

  4. Sometimes Sam and I will just act so goofy — have silly dance parties and making each other giggle. I think we are definitely matched in our weirdness and it’s great to find someone who appreciates that silly side of you where you can totally let loose.
