This week's prompt was actually challenging for me. There was a time in my life when I wished I could be anyone but me. I always had amazing gifts and talents inside but I just couldn't see them. Then one day, through life's ups and downs,those gifts and talents were brought forth slowly one by one. I felt like a brand new shiny penny. Today, my life is blessed and so different than what I could have possibly imagined. I am:
A devoted wife
A loving mother
A creative force to be reckoned with
44 years YOUNG
My greatest challenge with myself in this moment is trying to find out what my life's purpose is from a work standpoint. On the hardest days, I forget about my gifts and uniqueness and I behave like a wounded animal instead of the divine being that I know I am. I lose my footing on my path with God. My greatest wish for myself is to stay rooted in my faith that my perfect path is already unfolding. I wish for more patience as I walk it every day. I wish to honor every loving attribute about myself even when I find myself paddling upstream in a boat called "self-pity".
