I am The Girl
I'm taking off from Jennifer Camp's post today. I thought it would be a good time to think about these things. I hope I answer her prompts truthfully and maybe by doing so, I'll find answers for myself.
I am that girl who believes that I have a whole world inside of me that is waiting to be discovered but simply do not have time to do so.
I am that girl who loves meaningful moments.
I am the girl who runs away from the crowd.
I am the girl who hides when there are too many things to do that overwhelms.
I am the girl who laughs when I am with people who crack jokes that come from their ability to be comfortable with their own foolishness.
I am the girl who cries when I am forgotten.
I am the girl who grew up in a small family that weathered many storms and experienced the goodness and Mercy of God's restoration.
I am the girl that struggles with so many aspects of herself.
I am the girl who longs for a peaceful rhythm in life and a place free to be who I am.
I am a girl who knows that there is more to young people than what adults say and that their hearts run deep with stories waiting to be told.
I am the girl who is afraid of not being able to do what I'm meant to be doing.
I am the girl who wants to weave words about the stories she sees from everyday life, the joy and the pain all intricately woven in love. I am the girl who wants to write songs and make music that can be shared. I am the girl who wants to unearth young people's hopes and help them make their way into the world unfraid. I am the girl who wants to build organizations that are bound by solid values that help create more jobs for others. I am the girl who wants to make more beautiful things out of this life.
