The other day I talked about the things I’m afraid of when I go back to Tennessee. Of being afraid that who I am now will be undone when I go back to that world. I shared these fears with my sweetest friends Cindy and Kristin shortly after I wrote the blog. Cindy has walked through life with me the last two and a half years very closely and has spoken the truest words I’ve known. She has insight into my heart like very few do. And that’s all I’m going to say about her before I fall apart into a puddle of tears.

Cindy challenged me to write down the things I know to be true because there are going to be times in life when I won’t believe who I am and I won’t have anyone to remind me. “I expect to see a blog about this soon, young lady.” She sternly informed. As soon as she told me to write down the truths about myself, the blog was forming. Could this be one of my most vulnerable blogs to date? Most likely. Is it something we should probably ALL be in the practice of doing? Probably. So I guess I’ll go first.

What I know to be true about who I am:

  • I am wanted
  • I am worthy
  • I am loveable
  • I am lovely
  • I am beautiful
  • I am worth being the only woman a man pursues
  • I am worth Papa’s BEST and not good enough
  • I am strong
  • I am enough
  • I don’t need to impress anyone with who I know or what I’ve done
  • My heart alone is enough to offer someone
  • I am new
  • I’m not the girl I was 2 1/2 years ago
  • I see the good in everyone
  • I see the good anyone can become
  • I have to be able to make sense of things
  • Writing comes as naturally as breathing
  • My favorite color is pink
  • I am an artist
  • I am creative
  • I am not ashamed of those things
  • I don’t have to be like anyone else
  • I need people to see beyond my extroverted personality
  • Going to movies by myself is one of my favorite things in the world
  • I am mean the first 30 minutes I’m awake in the morning
  • I like to tell stories
  • Sometimes I exaggerate
  • I like the challenge of getting people to like me
  • Papa’s love is just as good in the defeats as it is in the victories

This is going to be a running list for me. Scripture commands us to write things down. Write them down so we remember them. And we all know how (not) good I am at remembering. I give you all permission to remind me when I start forgetting who I am.
