The Meaning of Flawful

In creating my blog and brand, I wanted to pursue a name and slogan that were fitting of real people, real humans—not the edited version. Every day we are bombarded with images from social media, to magazines, to billboards, and more, all displaying “perfect” people. But they’re not perfect people. And I believe this has a detrimental effect on how we think of ourselves. We often strive for a perfection that doesn’t exist.

With Flawful, I want to break that thinking. By being flawful—full of flaws and recognizing those flaws—we remind ourselves that we are beautiful exactly the way we are.

We don’t need to buy the latest products or change ourselves to be the best version of ourselves that we can be.

Being flawful means that we embrace our flaws. By embracing our flaws, we embrace who we are and all of the greatness that lies inside each one of us.
