Many, many years ago, when artists would make marble sculptures, they would cover up any cracks, chips, or flaws with wax that matched the color of the marble, effectively hiding these flaws. As you may have already guessed, those brave and/or truly skillful sculptors that weren't afraid of showing off the true beauty of their work - the ones who had nothing to hide - would stamp their works of art with these two simple words: Sine Cera, letting everyone know that they weren't ashamed. They were proud of their work, regardless of what other people thought.

I'm proud of who I am, flaws and all. After all, you get one chance at this thing called life. Why waste it with regret, sorrow, doubt, remorse, and judgment? So to those reading this, take these words into consideration: Just be you. You are beautiful, and no one can tell you different. No one is perfect, and therefore no one has the right to tell you how you should be, where you should go, or what you should do with your life. Do what makes you happy, and accept it when others do the same.

If you've made it this far, good for you. I know this is a lot to read, but I'm tired of hiding. I'm sitting here at one thirty in the morning, and I've decided to put myself out there completely. By reading this you will learn more about me than many others who have known me for years. I'm tired of running, tired of hiding, and tired of keeping secrets. So, here I am. Without wax.

It's also, I believe, where the English word 'Sincere' derived from.
