I am a work in progress.
I think one of the most wonderful things about life is that it’s always changing and we are always growing. The person I am today is not the person I was 10 years ago. Heck, the person I am today is not the person I was last week. Life changes, sometimes at breakneck speeds, and we are given the opportunity to change with it. For that, I am most grateful.
There was a time in my life I thought I had “made it.” I find that laughable now. But, I was young and had worked my way up to a Vice President position before I was 30. Every time I walked into my 200-square foot, corner office I had a sense of pride. From that corner office I commanded a team and drew up plans for world domination. I was convinced I was the next best thing since sliced bread… Did I mention I had pride? Yes, lots of it.
I’m not diminishing the hard work I put into my career, but it didn’t take long before my title and position were just that, a title and position. They didn’t truly fulfill me.
Fast forward almost 20 years and I’m learning that respecting myself and believing that I am truly the precious creation that God says I am, brings a joy and peace that spread their roots so deep in my soul that they can’t help but overflow into everything I do. And in trusting that I am fearfully and wonderfully made (God isn’t surprised by my cellulite, or my gray hairs, or my strange – awesome – laugh, or anything else about me, including my past) I am able to live in freedom that comes from knowing I am 100% accepted and adored.
And it’s in this freedom that I am able to explore my desires, giftings, and passions. It’s also in this freedom that I can say, “Hey, at my age, I in no way have it all figured out. But I know I am on a journey that has lead me here; for such a time as this.”
