I just read something that gives life to this blog. It simply stated that “I ‘m slowly becoming the person I should have been a long time ago”. Well, duh!! It resonated in my entire being. Yes, here it is I’m almost 50 and I am just NOW where I should have been on so many levels. Then I must admit that it may not have been time for me to have reached full butterfly potential just yet. See, I’ve learned in this wonderful journey called life that sometimes, it’s just not time yet.
Not time for you to realize the full potential of the greatness you posses. It’s always been there. Some of us are just late to the greatness party or we get there too early and mess it up. I hope this makes sense to you. It makes all the sense in the world to me but I dance by a different beat. Here’s what I know today. I am _______________. That blank has countless options for me and I am filling them ALL in. The current mood is Free, Strong and Determined. There are situations in our lives that we move past but still linger in the deep recesses of our minds. They can hold you hostage if you let them, even subconsciously . I have broken free. I am no longer (well every day is a new start) living in that mindset of being bound by things I can not change and have no control over. I am free from the thoughts of what if as there is nothing I can do until, if or when it manifest.
I have the strength of the warrior women of Wakanda (Black Panther), and the determination of an ant carrying up to 10 times it’s own body weight. Yes, I may have dabbled in these things but now, I have BECOME. As I move forward into the rest of what is to become my fabulous 50’s (I have started the celebrations way early) I know that I will evolve and grow to new heights and depths of my best self ever. I have BECOME.
I am a hard loving, kinda goofy, funny, compassionate and super cool woman. I enjoy writing, reading, baking and crafting. Currently working on a hard reset in my life and knowing that no matter the outcome I will have given my all - fail or succeed.
