When I look at my childhood picture today I cringe. Three young sisters all dressed alike with petticoat dresses, gloves, little hats and purses. Oh my! I'm sure it was stylish when I was 8. Ha!
The outfit doesn't make me cringe as much as the look on my face causes me concern. My smile looks pleasant enough, but the eyes tell a different story.
I recognize the look in those eyes. The lost look that says "this isn't me - please see me; the real me, not who you think I should be." I would see it again in my eyes throughout the years as people overlooked who I really was and instead expected me to be who they needed me to be.
Until I became aware that I had lost me. I remember Rachel asking me, "What do you need?" When I had no answer, I knew I was in trouble. With the help of a heart friend and Jesus, I went on the journey to find the authentic me.
I learned a few things along the way and I want to share them with you so you too can
become all you were created capable of being.
Take a look around - get in touch with me - I'd be honored to meet you!
