What does Fabulously Flawed and Trying mean?
To me, it’s self-explanatory, but to break it down, it’s a self-given label that promotes the unique fabulousness of a person, the acceptance of one’s flaws, and the acknowledgment of “TRY”!
Why did I start Fabulously Flawed and Tryin?
I wanted to create a space that I could tell my story and speak freely about the unique way I look at the world. I genuinely believe that we’re all connected in some sort of weird way. That in order for us to find our light, someone else would need to find theirs. That can ignite something inside of us we didn’t know we had. That is what I mean by we’re all connected in some way. This is my healing space, and I pray that telling my story will, in some way, help someone else shine their way out of their darkness.
Who would I love to connect with via my blog?
I would love to connect with some overthinking individuals that may have grown up feeling alone and misunderstood, people who want to talk about the difficult subjects that make us uncomfortable with the hopes of clarity and growth, people who uniquely see the world, people who understand that therapy works and is lacking in our communities, and I would also like to connect with people who are late bloomers in the “find your calling” category so we can navigate through this together.
Fabulously Flawed and Tryin was a dream of mine years ago, but it wouldn’t manifest until I would suffer through the darkest my thoughts have ever been in my life. Summer 2019 is when I knew I had to do something to save my life, not just for my family but for myself. That space was/is so unhealthy, and it was trying to kill me. I have suffered in silence since I was a child. Mental illness only thrives if it’s kept secret and hidden. That’s what I did, hid it. Now I’m creating a space to broadcast it to the world to take my power back, to give people a transparent look at me, and to give someone out there a feeling of understanding. My goal is to grow and become the therapist I wish I had growing up. And maybe my writings spark some conversations that the people around me and I have been avoiding.
Please, with an open mind and heart, let’s grow some mindsets, build some self-love, and sprinkle some compassion on each other together…

When I think of Takia the first word that comes to mind is, protective. I feel like you have always been protective of our friendship, even when it hurt you to do so. I always felt safe that you would never betray me….

As a woman you’re really amazing. You’re everywhere you need to be while being nowhere you don’t want to be. I can tell that you are starting to enjoy yourself as yourself more that you probably did before we became friends. You do your best to be a trustworthy friend and a better person than some of the role models you may or may not have had growing up. You’re aggressive and positive so being around you even when we don’t have anything to discuss is always a nice experience…
Stubborn(lol), great mom, wife, great friend, sister, and very giving. But you’re also “open”, I mean the way that you can travel around and meet knew people you have to be open-minded…

The life of the party; jokester. Outspoken when giving your opinion or advice but guarded when speaking about your feelings. May appear to not care about having support(cheerleaders) but deep down it’s really important…
