I AM

Who am I really?

This question often pops in my head, because for the past two and half years I have fallen to the unfortunate consequence of broken relationships and “lost” the person I was; the person everyone loved and trusted; the person who enjoyed life for every moment I was blessed with.

Although I was lost, I recently was reminded by my sweet Savior that I can be found, if I allow God to find me. I am not meant to be lost, hurt, shamed, guilty, and unhappy. Through the grace of Jesus Christ I am meant to experience life with love, joy, and peace.

Spending the majority of the day with my four-year old niece, surely makes an impression on the way I should look at and take on life. To live every second with such reckless abandon; to live with full trust is those who love you who are there to help you make the right decisions and choices. I really do appreciate every second I spend with my niece, and especially  my family.

I am so fortunate to have the family and friends I do, and that is what makes me who I am. The question is no longer a mystery. Just like the amazing hymn, “I once was lost, but now I am found.”

Therefore, I am:

  • blessed to live in the U.S. where I am enabled freedom
  • strong, passionate, smart, and beautiful
  • a woman of God, a sister, a daughter, a friend, an aunt
  • fortunate enough to understand that imperfections are beauty

I am whatever I want to be. I make the choice every single morning I wake up to be as humble, dedicated, passionate, and servant driven as Jesus Christ Himself; to live each day with the intention that it is my last; to not only set goals, but to achieve them.

Who are you? Can you define yourself?
