It’s amazing how quickly people will decide they know something about you. It drives me crazy sometimes. Some people are not open books, myself included. In that case, there may be a lot people can’t see when they look at you. —
I write, which up until a few months ago nobody really knew about me. I don’t talk much, but not because I have nothing to say… it’s because I get really nervous and can’t seem to get the right words out. Most of the time I seem like I have no ambition & very few goals, which is not the case. — I have a lot of things I want to do.. big things, I just have to get out of my comfort zone to do them, and I’m not ready yet (but I’m getting there.) — I spent my entire childhood not wanting children, when in fact, as I got older I realized I do… I want to adopt. — I want to spend my life helping others. — I don’t want to look back & regret a moment where I didn’t lend someone the helping hand they needed. — I want to live in a way that when people look at my life they see Jesus Christ. —
I’m just not an open book about it. Not yet anyway. I’m getting my voice. I’m learning to be me out in the open. It’s just taking time. I’m growing as a person and I see a little bit of progress everyday. (& I like it!)
Looking at my life from a distance, people aren’t going to see these things. That doesn’t mean that they aren’t there. That doesn’t mean I’m not a complex individual with a lot to offer the world. — It just means that people have to get a closer look at me before they decide they have me all figured out.
So to everyone that reads this… maybe get to know your family, friends, or neighbors a little better. See if there is something really great about them that maybe you never knew about before. Most likely, there is. We’re all amazing people! 🙂
