Who is the REAL you?

Do you ever wonder if anyone knows the REAL you? This has been on my mind a lot as of late and I have to admit that it is really consuming my mind at this point! I know who I am but I know that people rarely see that part of me that I consider to be the real me. Most people know us by what we do, here is my list of what I think people see: wife, mother, photographer, singer, friend. This is what I am that people see on a daily basis but these are things I DO, NOT who I am! I realized all of this on Wednesday evening! Spencer and I had been in a meeting with Pastor Lou and I realized that we were both very reserved and quiet (not like me at all) when the meeting was over I had to immediately go to praise team practice and that is where it really hit me: I AM NOT QUIET AND RESERVED AT ALL! We were rockin' the praise and worship music and I was jumping around like a 16 year-old and having a wonderful time! I was being my fun loving, outgoing old self, someone that I had not seen for quite some time and I LOVED IT! I want to be that me all the time! I am not saying that I can't be reserved when needed because I know what is appropriate and what isn't, all I'm saying is, why should I hide the real me? I DON'T and I WON'T! Life is too short to pretend to be something we are not! I am not sorry for who I am and I am not sorry that the REAL me is going to reclaim her rightful place in my life! I don't mean to offend anyone but that quiet, shy person is not the REAL me and she is now gone forever!! Perhaps I need to spend a month or two with my older sister, Debbie! She is bold and outgoing, that is just who she is! Maybe a lesson or two is order for the real me to shine through!

LIFE IS SHORT! Have fun and enjoy it while you can but remember to do so within reason because God is ALWAYS watching! Have a great weekend!!

Hi. I just wanted to let you know that I visited your blog. I enjoyed reading too.

Gotta wonder if anyone really knows who they are.

Knowing who you are is a constantly changing thing. Some days I'm this and the next, I'm that. It evolves as we do. The quest for finding yourself is sometimes difficult, but also a joy. Enjoy the journey.
