I read the prompt this morning on Dare to Share and have been thinking of it ever since. I do have plenty of posts that show pieces of me, but I decided to write a new one....and try to explain who I am.
I am multi-layered, formed from sins and accomplishments. With poor choices I learned, grew and gained in knowledge, faith and understanding. In success, I grew in confidence, knowledge, focus and faith as well.
I am mostly made up of my faith. More than anything else, this is what pushes me, directs me, and convicts me.
I have always been blessed. Whether experiencing divorce as a child, exploration of drugs and alcohol as a youth, teenage motherhood, wife of an addict, single mother, or now wife to a Godly man, teacher and grandmother...through it all, I was blessed. Through pain and joy I smiled, always ready to see the silver lining.
I am constantly changing, like the winds that pound against rock, changing the scenery...I am changing, eroding and becoming new all the time.
I dream. I wonder. I love. I create.
I want acceptance, peace, praise.
I run from conflict and confrontation...but not before my voice is heard!
I have secrets I wish I never began or gave birth to.
I walk in a cloud of compassion. I am sometimes misunderstood.
I am often quiet. I desire to grow, become better.
If I were to rewrite this time and time again...it would change. Some things remain constant. Some things intensify, and others I let go.
This is me, today.
Brought this post back out to share on Let's Bee Friends to introduce myself.
