Shandy Longcore

Embracing Imperfections is a 501(c3) non-profit that is passionate about you finding and acting on your purpose, your why. We want to draw attention to mental health and ultimately we want to eradicate suicide. You can find Shandy, the Founder and President, speaking at local schools and companies sharing her suicide attempt survival story and how she is a living example of the semicolon movement. She wants to invite you to listen, learn and act on her discovery of how beautiful life can be, even when it’s imperfect.

What does it mean to embrace your imperfections? Well, it starts with realizing that you are, indeed, imperfect. And so are all your friends. Your parents. Your teachers. Your pastor and coach and the people you have lunch with and see in theaters and sit with in a stadium that can hold tens of thousands. All of us.

By embracing those imperfections, we are acknowledging that we’re all works in progress. Making that admission allows us to move forward, living lives by focusing on the gifts we have to share with the world. The little things and the big things. But in doing so, we have to stop comparing ourselves – and our gifts – with others’ contributions to the planet. Our culture can make this difficult, especially if we allow ourselves to be caught up in envying others – who they hang with, what they have, how they dress and how they look. The wisest people on the planet agree on one thing: Your life will be measured by what you gave, and the character you showed in the face of adversity. But wisdom shouldn’t be the sole property of older people.
