Finding Me

I’m 56 years old soon to be turning 57and life has shown me a lot, I have learned a lot but I also made many mistakes that made my life a little harder for myself. But here are a few things that I did not believe I would feel about myself:

  1. Self-esteem, it was so low at one point in my life that I would not even look in a mirror, I let someone tell me I was just not pretty enough and I let that label hold me back for many years. I suffer in silence, while I pretend in public. But one day I look in the mirror and said to myself, nope I am somebody and yes I am pretty and from that day forward I saw my own beauty for the first time.
  2. Confidence- To believe in myself was a joke, everyone around me had what I did not have the confidence to believe in myself and set goals, I said to myself you don’t speak the way they do, your finances are all out of whack, and the ability to fit in you are not there yet. But then I had to find my passion and I did it was writing. It was an outlet for me to express myself without anyone judging me.
  3. Accomplished: I use to blame others because I was not a success, I held a grudge against those who would go after what they wanted and achieved it, wondering “why” for them and “why” not for me. But as they say better late than never. I am not only an achiever I am also an author.
  4. So as I am about to turn 57 I look over my life and realize every thing I went through was preparing me for this moment I had to build my self-esteem, have the confidence to fulfill my dream, and fill accomplished in something I love. Yes it has taken awhile but God wanted me to be mature enough to handle my accomplishments and now I have found me on this glorious journey. And I do not regret the road I had to travel to get here. Find you, then you will find your passion, self-esteem, confidence and walk into that door with your head held high. Because it took awhile for me to find myself but that is ok.
