When I saw this picture, I thought of how much I have changed over these few years. I am now the quirky bird on the right. I used to do crazy fun things with my childhood friends that were so bizarre. (***JBR smiles***)
My journey has taken me through many twists and turns of self-discovery. Striving to put away my many masks and just becoming myself. Exposed, uncut and ultimately more confident!
My quirkiness of fun is reappearing.
Although I can still get hurt very easily by stabbing words and looks, the difference now is, when I do get hurt, it does not stop me from stepping out once again.
Before I would curl up in a ball and hide in fear from being verbally destroyed. Now, there is a quicker turn-a-round time when that happens to heal and move on. Glory to God!
Pressure can be off of us when we finally realize that we need not be anyone else but our self! That each and everyone of us is uniquely made! It is not easy to believe, I know. But, it is true!!
Courage plays a big part in being different. Accepting who we are. Quirks and all. And if others cannot handle your quirkiness, their loss.
Will you become a Quirky Bird too?
and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23
My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.
Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.
Daddy let me be secure in You only!
