Thankful for Who I am today
Let's be real for a minute. Life can be rough! We ALL have our struggles. For years, I struggled with being alone and wondering what was so wrong with me that someone wouldn't sincerely love me. I had my oldest daughter to take care of and was able to spend a lot of time with family so that helped to a point. I dated now and then but it never seemed to work out. Finally, I learned to just let go, not worry so much about what others thought of me, be happy with who I was. I still had my daughter, extended family, my job and my friends.
When I least expected it, I met my husband, we got married and had 3 more sweet girls. I still have my struggles now and then just like everyone does. Surely, I'm not here just to be a maid, secretary, cook and driver. Do they really appreciate me? (The answer is yes!)
Some days, I can look in the mirror and be really hard on myself. Most other days, I know I'm the best ME that I can be. You see, I'm not rich or famous but I'm important. *I* can make a difference in other's lives. *I* can be a friend to those in need. *I* can be the best mom my girls need in their lives. *I* can teach them to be kind and loving. *I* can use the talents I've been given to bless others lives.... *I* can do SO many things if I put my mind to it!
I have learned so much over the years. I have grown to love who I am now. Are there things I don't like about my past? You bet! (doesn't everyone?) Would I go back and do it over again? Well, there are a few things I would change, but for the most, the answer is no. The dumb mistakes I've made have been learning blocks for me. The choices I've made have made me who I am today. Am I perfect? NOPE! Not even close. I'm trying to be better though and as long as I'm aware of my weaknesses and working to be better, that's all I can expect from myself. So, yes, I am thankful for who I am today!
I've said it before but I want to say it again:
YOU are Amazing! YOU are loved! YOU are talented! YOU are important! Nobody else can make a better you!
