Uniquely You

I like sports cars, I watch Korean dramas, I listen to one direction and I watch Disney movies. I love to read books, Beverly Lewis is a personal favorite. I am a high heels sparkle kind of girl who loves country rustic too. I love history and am fascinated by other cultures. Children and the elderly are my niche I want to help them and my heart aches when they are sad and lonely. My favorite color is sparkle and I like makeup and pretty hair but never have time to do mine. I love to write but never finish the books I start. I’ve always wanted to be an actress. I love video games. I want to live in the country with sprawling acreage, I want to live in a penthouse in the city, but I want to live on the lake too. I want to travel…everywhere! I love cruises, I want to learn how race professionally. I want to learn to play guitar and piano, I want to learn to draw. I want to learn at least two different languages. The law and forensics fascinate me. I want to change the way law enforcement works when I am a lawyer. These are some of the things that make me uniquely me. These are the things that I like and enjoy but often when faced with others I tend to hid about myself. There is no one out there who doesn’t want to feel loved, accepted, appreciated, or included. Often that means when we are around others who like something different then us we rush to like what they do. We rationalize that we do really like those things because yeah they are cool. So rarely do we understand that it is okay to not like something as much as someone else. Or to mention that you don’t like that but you like something else. I suffer with this problem a lot because of what I went through as a child. Always being left out, picked on, never “belonging” in a group of people I thought were my friends. When I got older and thought hey I won’t have that problem anymore people have grown out of being childish…I find myself often in the same boat. I often find myself wanting to be included so badly that I forget to be what it is that makes me uniquely me. It is difficult when faced with a world that forces their opinions and their “right” to give their approval down your throat. Guess what though…they don’t have that right. Although I won’t say I don’t still try to “fit in” I am finding that the more I focus on God and what He wants for my life the more I find I am not really caring what others think. Maybe you’re the popular one in your group or maybe you’re like me and can’t find that “ride or die” group of friends. Whichever you are always remember to share with people what it is that makes you uniquely you. You don’t have to justify your likes or dislikes to someone. As long as you are following God’s will and plan for your life to the best you know how, He will put the people in your life that you need and that need you. Never forget to be uniquely you!
