I have been afraid to reach for my hearts true desire-
Afraid to be who I was really created by God to be.
I began living my life without Passion and Fire.
Forced myself into the confines of a world too small for me.
Started putting limits on myself.
Started forgetting about my greatest wealth.
My gifts & talents I tried to hide
and the soul searching ceased- afraid of what I'd discover inside.
Trapped by my own insecurities that prevented me from living the life I want to live.
Holding the keys of freedom in my hand but still bound and held captive.
Started hearing what everyone else hears & what everyone saw was what I started to see
Then in the midst of bitter silence emerged a scream from within "This is not Me!"
Immediately I was saddened at what I had become
When I thought of the Royal Heritage I was really from.
My average thinking and limited views were occurring because
I had started forgetting who I really was.
So who am I?
I am the one who reaches beyond the stars in the sky.
My dreams are the wings that enable me to fly.
I give the best. I live the best & the best is what I am to receive.
I can do all things- reach & obtain those Higher Heights if only I will believe.
I am extraordinary not ordinary! I set the flavor of my atmosphere.
I'm the head & not the tail.
My life is to be spectacular. In this life I am to excel.
Confidence & boldness are a part of me.
I am a person of Integrity.
So from out of the depths of struggles, tribulations & adversity
Rises a brand new person. Here emerges Me!
Freed from bondage ready to soar
And I'm back stronger than ever I was before.
Thank you, Wendy for your encouraging, enlightening words. I have discovered that it is the "struggles, tribulations, and adversity" that are the catalysts necessary in order for the 'real me'
