I woke up this morning feeling burdened by a dream, in which my happiness was being controlled by the person I was in a relationship with. But the beauty of the dream is, that's no longer my reality!
God, The Most High, has been so merciful to me. Blessing me with the ability to have a chance at connecting with myself at 30, as a single woman. I feel inspired and motivated to step into this womanhood. Yes, I said womanhood. I've realized that my twenties were about finding my identity, learning about my interest, skills, and passions. Both personally and professionally. I'm gaining insight into areas and aspects of myself where I fell short, and where I need to grow. I understand that now. Growth for me requires enjoying myself, before allowing someone else to enjoy me. I must know more about me and how to love me, before giving someone else that opportunity. You may think that me making this self - discovery at 30 is late. You might even question, when will I fall in love again and at what age? Even that has crossed my mind too! But that's not the season of my life right now. The love that I need was always within me, waiting to be embraced and accepted. Love for myself is more potent than someone else loving me. It took me a while to realize this, but I'm okay with that and as of right now all I want to do is focus on getting to know my God in this season of my life and getting to know me again at 30.
