who are you?

i love this quote by ralph waldo emerson
" to be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment"

who am i?

i am a dork, a wife, a mother, a musician, a lover of arts, a daughter, a sister, a friend and a whole slew of other things. do any one of these things define me more than another?
they work together to make me the magical bipolar person that i am. i am kidding, but honestly each of these parts of me define me.

there is a part of getting older that is amazing, and that is self-actualiztion. realizing that who you are is not dependent on any outside forces. i cannot allow anyone else define my worth and value. i cannot allow others to diminish who and what i am, neither can i allow any of the labels control me. i only wish that i knew this as much when i was in high school when i needed it the most.

i'm not the biggest dork i know, nor the best wife, mother or musician. there is always someone who is a better daughter, sister, friend or leader. i know i have my own mission in this life. i know that no matter what people say, think or feel about me that i have a purpose. a calling. a divine nature that God intended to be truly mine. given to me as a gift of His love. to be used as a gateway to serve Him through serving His children. i am not perfect, great or even good for that matter, but in the end i am a daughter of God. a woman.

i'm proud to be the dork who doesn't write well or speak good and who always gets in trouble for plowing through life, but i am who i am. at least for now. i know i will change again.

who are you?

If you could see the woman that God intended you to be, you would rise up and never be the same again.
