It is important to understand that Imperfectly Perfect does NOT focus on any one type of life altering experience. If you have gone through an experience in life, and were able to learn and grow from that experience as a person; you are placed into the category of Imperfectly Perfect.

Try to paint a picture for your reader. The better your paint; the easier it is for your reader to connect with you & your experience!
What kind of an experience have you been through? (use medical terms where they apply please)
How was your life before this situation?
How did you feel going through your situation? *This is important because your thoughts and feelings during your experience are what people going through the same situation as you, will be able to relate to
How long did your situation last?/ Are you currently still going through it?
What did you learn from your situation? *The point of this is to educate individuals and give them knowledge that they would normally not have had if they did not read your story
Did you have support while going through this situation? *If you did, who supported you and why did it help? If not, would you have felt better having someone there to support you through your experience?
What advice would you give someone going through your situation? *Include how to approach the situation/ways to deal with it
Why do you feel your situation can be viewed as a Blessing in Disguise? *What did you learn about yourself, or life
