Life has no smooth road for any of us; and in the bracing atmosphere of a high aim the very roughness stimulates the climber to steadier steps, till the legend, over steep ways to the stars, fulfills itself.

I'm not Perfect but....

Thank you to my beautiful friend Caro and her partner Nora, i love you both! Caro helped me load this....well actually she did everything. She changed to video format and did a bunch of computery things i dont know while i sat on their couch and ate with Nora. She told me that the quality of the video is a little low but it still works.

Now on to the video. I tried to post this about two weeks ago and it wouldn't work and as time went by I chickened out of posting it. I was finally given the opportunity to move forward with the plan when Caro mentioned her computer skills. I'm not going to say much because, as per my habit i rambled on quite a bit in the video so i apologize for the 11 minutes. I'll just say that it's about my struggles with perfection and this video is far from that and i was so nervous! I keep thinking i coud have done better but that's the point. So... Enjoy!


  1. Really enjoyed this Leila. It's real and unpretentious, and captures who you are flaws and all. It also shows your good qualities.

    Sandy did something similar that really impressed me when she posted her 'before' pictures. She's steadily coming down, looking better and feeling better about herself. I'm proud of her for being so determined, and also for having the courage to post her photos for the world to see when she wasn't feeling that good about herself.

    This video was an uncomfortable, brave thing to do. Great post.

  2. I absolutely love this Taloolah May. xx <3
