Hi! I’m Megan and here’s 4 little facts about me!
1️⃣ I have a club thumb. My thumbs look like they belong to two different people. That imperfection was the beginning of me hating my hands. I was 11, watching a movie at school. My crush was sitting beside me and went to hold my hand! He noticed my thumb and pushed it away, I felt like such an outcast! Up until about 3 years ago, I made a point of hiding that thumb.
2️⃣ I love to cook, bake and make up recipes. I’ve been cooking/experimenting since I was about 9 years old. Fun fact, I used to bake on the side for fun! Not to brag, but I’m pretty good at making gluten free taste good! I think my page may still be kicking around @gluten__free__goodies - if you’re bored and want to have a look at the 1st little business venture I explored online.
3️⃣ I’ve always been intuitive. I lost my dad at a young age and always knew I could sense him around me. For a long time, I even believed he was still alive. I was brought up in a Christian home and this part of my spirituality was frowned upon. I kept it to myself because I was afraid I’d be scolded for thinking that way, or that I’d be seen as evil. Over the years I’ve learned that part of me is far from evil, it’s beautiful and a big part of my truth.
4️⃣ I feel EXTREMELY vulnerable sharing all of these facts. I’m learning to love myself wholly and completely, but I’m still human. It’s scary to put yourself out there and risk being seen. Fear of the unknown often keeps us hidden. We want to be loved and accepted, so we often hide who we really are. As I grow, I find I’m seeking genuine connection, love & acceptance. I’d rather be liked by few for the person I really am, than falsely idolized for someone I’m not.
What’s something you’ve learned to love about yourself? Or maybe something silly you just want to share? Being vulnerable has helped me on my path to self love & inner healing. May this post hold space for you to express yourself, even if it means being a little vulnerable 💚
