Today is a thinking day!

The sky is grey today and has been for the last few days. I think it kind of matches my mood. Today really is a thinking day. For the last few months I have been contemplating the person that I am. Where have I come from, who am I now and where am I going?! I found this great quote from e.e. cummings that says

It takes courage to grow up and be who you really are.

I think that is what I am trying to figure out. Who am I really? I know that I am Chris' wife and Kiana and Malachi's mom, but who am I. I know I am a child of God and that He created me to be the being I am. I want to be true to me and to my family and friends. I want to be a person that people feel better for having known me. I want to be able to look in the mirror and really be happy with what I see. I just want to BE!

Hi Mona!! I too just discovered your blog!! Good for you for taking the time to ponder such a thought, and try to figure it out. I think there is an added pressure when you realize that you are a child of God and as such you have the potential to be divine!! It really makes you feel less than so some days... HUGS my friend. Think away!!

Sometimes thinking days are nice to have Mona. A grey day is a perfect day to have some "deep thought time". I hope you find the answers you are looking for. Perhaps you have inspired us all to do a little soul searching!
