Sharing your story is the perfect opportunity to reflect on your own personal journey,
To inspire those who walk in similar shoes as yours,
And to help us create a support system simultaneously!
Each story written has two goals in mind:
- To allow the reader to reflect on their own personal journey, their obstacles, achievements and lessons learned.
- To inspire those who read your story with your insights, advice and inspiration
We want this to be a writing process for you, something that you enjoy. Our only guideline is that you follow the format of the story, so that each story written, flows together. Once the story is written, you will send it to JaimeLynn@ImperfectlyPerfect.org for edits/comments. Once the final version is approved (by you), you will sign off on the story and we can share it!
We ask that one the story is complete, each picture is accompanied by a personal picture of you holding either a hand written sign, or our printed logo, which reads “Scars Are Beautiful”
Okay…time to begin!
