That’s Who I Am

26 Jun

Several days ago, I was talking to my husband about a song on the radio.  Somehow it prompted a different conversation and, at one point, I said, “If I could be whoever I wanted to be…..”  I have spent many moments since that conversation thinking about that statement.  And I have come to this sad conclusion.  There are some things I would like to be that I’m not, for one reason or another.  And most of those things are easily changed.  They don’t require any specific college degree or truckload of money.  They just require the confidence and courage it takes for me to change.  They require my willingness to care less about what other people think and more about what makes me happy.  They require a leap of faith and some nerves of steel.  And, I think, I’m ready.

imageThere are so many different sides to who I want to be.  There are so many different people I look at and think, “I wish I could be that.”  Not exactly like them, but a specific trait they have that I feel I possess.  Something that is inside of me, I just haven’t ever let it out. No more wishing. Life is too short for me to waste time being someone I don’t want to be. Life is too precious for me to look back on it with any regrets. I tell my children constantly that they can be whomever they want to be. I have finally realized that I get to do that too.

So, over the course of the next few months, I will be making some changes. I will be making decisions that get me to my ultimate goal…. Sara. Not the diluted version of myself that I have become. I am starting small. I have a hair appointment on Friday. Exciting things will be happening. Then, who knows after that? I do know this, I’m done apologizing for what is inside of me. I’m done trying to be who I think everyone else wants. I have four people to answer to; my God, my husband, and my kids. As long as I am who I need to be for them, I get to be happy with myself too. And, it’ long past time I made that happen.

Stay tuned for exciting changes to come….

    I am so excited to see what God has instore for you. He has been in the process of making you who He desires and plans for you to be for a very long time. The journey is not always easy or pleasant. There will be some bumps in the road and struggles along the way. Satan will try to defeat you in your search for a more Christ-like image. Stand strong on the promises of God. He already has the furture laid out for you and who you are to be. Just lean on Him and you will succeed. I love you, dear friend ❤
