I am Just A Girl!

For the longest time I thought I really knew myself.  Nope.  Not in the least.  It is not easy to go deep within and pull out all the good, bad and the ugly of emotions and feelings and try to make sense of it all.  To look yourself in the mirror and say “Who are You?”  I knew that I had this big soup of emotions of being bold, excited, happy, joyful, frustrated, insecure, worried, nervous, fearful, and then loved.  What I learned is that you can’t control your feelings, but you can control your thoughts.  I have trouble sometimes distinguishing between a “feeling” and what was a “thought”. Sometimes you have to check in with yourself and say “I feel ____________” right now.

Then I decided that I didn’t want to control my emotions, but just allow them to bubble to the surface whenever it felt like it.  I did know one thing and that it was absolutely vital for any relationship I have with my co-workers, friends, family and love interest was to own my own emotions.  I could not put the blame onto someone else for how I was feeling.  They are just being who they are.  I have recently discovered that I have become way too protective of my emotions and feelings.  I found myself not expressing how I felt about someone because I knew they didn’t feel the same way.  I stayed in that place of keeping my feelings to myself in order to be protective of my heart and feelings.  What I discovered was how wrong that was.  I was not doing myself or the other person any favors.  I had to find my voice, because each and every one of us is born to express what we want.  That unless I expressed what I wanted there was no way I was going to get it.

What I have learned along the way is that I AM JUST A GIRL

–who loves life;

–who is going to choose love over fear;

–who can stand on her own two feet and take care of herself, but would rather have someone to share her life with;

–who can be quite passionate about doing the right thing;

–who is quite comfortable with who I am, but loves it when someone special tells me what they love about me;

–who has absolute faith in God’s promises and trust in his timing;

–who wants to give love at every chance I get;

–who has been through tough situations and allowed God to refine her in order to be who I am today; and

–who will never stop growing, loving, making mistakes and learning from it.

Wow it feels so good when you know what life has to offer and know who you are.  I am finding that it requires getting out of your head and letting your heart be open,  Most of all that each and every one of us deserves to be happy.  We all have scars that love can heal.  Listen to your heart.  What is it telling you?
