I recently moved with my sister and I am so so blessed and grateful that finally we where able to move and we can fully pursue our dreams. The whole of this year we where working together at the same school and we pretty much did everything together whether we where at work or at home. So with time I begun to lose a bit of myself and I have no idea how that happened but I noticed.
In most cases I have heard people who where married or had children say this so I never thought it would happen to me seeing that I am not married and I do not have children. I was so engrossed in how we did this and that together that I forgot what it is that I wanted.
When I did realize this I began to think back on what are the things that make me me and what is it that I love. I began doing things for myself and not for anyone else. I am always one to go out of my way to make sure others are happy and I forget about myself.
So we as I write this it’s the end of October and we are getting ready to move and I have already begun making a some changes to get back to being me again. Now I take the time to write every single day and push my purpose.
Whenever I have a close friend or family member who I get along with so well I get caught up in enjoying the friendship that I forget myself or lose myself rather.
As some of you are already thinking yes I do that when dating or courting whatever term you use. I forget what I have to do as an individual because I love love and I get carried away sometimes. I even get to a point where. I put my trust and hope in a person and that can be too much pressure on the other person. The only person I am supposed to be doing that to is God because He never disappoints. Not to say let people have their way around you but I am sure you get what I mean.
The easiest way I have managed to do this is to focus on my purpose and doing what I love. Like I mentioned I write more, do more makeup, lookup more fashion, take up more speaking engagements etc. People may not understand all I will be doing but it’s my purpose and calling.
Another important thing is that I let those around me be themselves without influencing them in any way.
Being myself means I am more independent and I do things for myself without waiting for someone to do it for me. Basically I do what has to be done. I do things as an individual because I am an individual.
When God call me He called me alone:
Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed you in the womb I knew [and] approved of you [as My chosen instrument], and before you were born I separated and set you apart, consecrating you; [and] I appointed you as a prophet to the nations. [Exod. 33:12; Isa. 49:1, 5; Rom. 8:29.]
He knew me all this time and me alone and not with other people. I want to own who God has made me to be and not compromise it for anybody.
I used to feel bad for loving what I love and that I am better at somethings than others. These things that I am good at make me me and differentiate me. There maybe a lot of people who are doing makeup but the way I do it is different. I have my own face shape and the way I stroke the brush is unique and different. That’s why you see that you can try and copy a makeup look but it will never be the same because you are you that is your power. I love fashion there are many fashion bloggers but my style is different that’s my amour.
I am still discovering more of myself and I am so happy on this journey of being me. Tell me more about your journey and how you have been owning your individuality. Thanks for reading till next time…..
