Mistakes are made often. What guides our mistakes are desperation, intense emotions, boredom and many other factors. Sure all these things matter, but we make mistakes because we are imperfect. Imperfection is pure. Imperfection… our imperfections are deceitful. They are also beautiful messes. Yet, we are surprised every time we make a mistake. We beat ourselves down and have spikes of pain in a forbidding place reminding us to feel, guilt. Guilt, a necessary evil that helps us react to what feels right and what feels wrong.
I have realized that mistakes are made for different reasons. There are mistakes that are caused by ill-intentions, some that are caused by impulse and others that, once you make that one mistake, you continue and cannot stop, like an addiction.
We are stronger than we think. Firstly, forgive yourself. This is not a ten-step process and this is not something you do in 30 minutes. Forgiving yourself is tough. Really tough. So how to best confront yourself and forgive? Hmmm, no, there is no answer. That’s up to you.
I feel like trouble finds me, but sincerely I seek it. I had to understand why I did it, why I did it over and over. Well, because I am imperfect! SO IMPERFECT… and it makes me a beautiful mess. Let yourself be free, and admit you are the most imperfect organism in your habitat, filled with imperfections that you will love because they are a part of your beauty. Once we except who we are, then we can transform into another stunning imperfection.
Imperfection is the truest part of nature.

Here is a bit about me: Name is Wuisa! I’m a nonconformist nomad, adventurer and seeker of pleasure. A twenty-one-year-old explorer. In search of those petit unforgettable blissful moments in life. Born in Bogotá, Colombia in the Andes Mountains where fall-like weather is eternal. I’m in my last semester of college at Randolph College in vintage Lynchburg, Virginia, taking 20.5 academic credits. An Environmental Studies major with a minor in French. I love to stay busy and go for long distance runs in the forest. If sunbathing naked were a sport, I would have countless gold medals. I find Ayn Rand’s views on objectivism brilliant, and I think Chuck Palahniuk is a creative genius. I am obsessed with Frida Kahlo‘s paintings and Pablo Neruda’s Poems. In my spare time, I write poetry, cook and watch foreign films. I promise you this, one day I’m going to stop whatever I’m doing, buy a ticket to Paris, then buy a ridiculously expensive camera and sleep in a tent near the Eiffel Tower. Never forget inspiration is endless. Pas.
