“When the sharpest words wanna cut me down, I’m gonna send a flood, gonna drown ‘em out. I am brave. I am bruised. I am who I’m meant to be. This is me.” — The Greatest Showman
What does it mean to be unapologetic? Like, honestly. Now, I’m not seeking the definition of this word for those of us who use it to be rude and “honest”, right? Let’s be better than that. lol
But, unapologetic……without fear of regret or shattering the mold others have tried to force you into (my definition). It’s quite interesting how the world has sought to determine molds that we should strive to fit but they directly contradict that of our Father. He created us to each be unique and spent time on each and every one of us.
I’ve spent my L I F E trying to fit in. Like, my whole life. I just wanted to be accepted. I just wanted to be a part. However, I’ve always found myself just outside of the normal, no matter how hard I tried. Even at 26, with so much healing and wholeness, I still find myself trying to be like those around me that I admire so much. But I am not.
I’ve realized that I can have a village, but still be just as unique as Cheddar Bay Biscuits from Red Lobster versus the ones you make at home…..I just don’t know how they do it!!!!…….back on topic I go. HA!
As much as I hate to admit, I’m still a musical nerd and often finding myself dancing alone in my kitchen, though in my head, I’m on stage performing somewhere big. I usually start sentences in the middle of thoughts and then have the nerve to look at others like they are crazy when they don’t understand what I’m talking about. Insert face palm here. But I’m trying to get better! lol I care a lot for people. It usually takes me forever to leave places from the people I love, though I have somewhere else to be. I tend to overcommit myself because I don’t like having to say no (within reason….also, working on that). I love to talk, to literally anyone. Most importantly, I love God with everything in me and can’t believe it took me this long to get to this place.
The gist of what I’m saying is, BE UNAPOLOGETICALLY who He created you to be! You’re incredible and now its time for you to act like it. There are special things that you are gonna do, that only YOU can do, so do them!! One step at a time.
You got this. I can’t wait to celebrate with you.
Be great and I’ll talk to you soon.
