what did you want to be when you grew up?
To recognize one’s own insanity is, of course, the arising of sanity, the beginning of healing and transcendence.
as a sensitive child, i’d answer the question above with titles and positions that piqued my interest at the moment. my tendency was to mirror those around me (and that’s how they answered the question so pediatrician, businesswoman, crime scene investigator were just a couple of my ideas).
but now as i reflect the truth is that i didn’t care so much for a title or position, i simply wanted to be two things: liked and like everyone else
i wanted to not bring attention to myself
because if others took a look a little bit longer in observing or investing in me, they might pick up on the fact that i’m a bit peculiar and hard to pin as belonging or fitting in with society
as a sensitive and confident adult, i can tell you my answer to the question is i want most of all to be myself, the one God intended
to be the woman who knows my name and every quirk was given to me for a reason
this woman that i am is daughter first of the King of Kings, disciple of Jesus, wholehearted, compassionate, rational, ardent, crazy, curious, warm, determined, resilient, disciplined, community-oriented, and health conscious
praising Father God for showing me me in His perfect timing that I am my younger self’s real dream
always in ❤️
