A water color painting. The edges are messy.
|Landscape by J. M. W. Turner in 1802|
It's faded and hard to see.
You can get lost looking at that painting trying to see the image clearly.
I felt like that water color painting. I was lost in questions... who am I? What am I?
I didn't know the answers and I felt like I needed to.
I've been talking with a professional and feeling great.
I'm realizing that somewhere in that watercolor I lie waiting. Waiting to be discovered, but I'm already there. I just need to acknowledge it. See it. Own it.
Because I am:
A daughter and a guardian.
A teacher and a student.
A music lover.
A West Wing and Doctor Who fan.
I am not defined by expectations of others.
I am not just my choices, they do not make or break me.
I am discovering more about myself everyday and learning to appreciate myself.
Remember many things in life can wait,
but learning more about yourself,
appreciating and respecting yourself,
and The Sunset Won't.
