I’m that girl who spent a lifetime making sure I remained in the background. The girl who sat in the back of the classroom, not because I was hanging with the cool kids but because I was hoping not to get called on. I never wanted to stand out, I never wanted to be the center of attention, I never wanted to risk the chance of being….Great!
I enjoyed and became comfortable being a supporting actress. I often never shared my thoughts for the simple fact that I didn’t deem them important enough. Others could better articulate their inner most thoughts so what would mine add to the mix? A LOT!
It took some time to realize I had a voice but now that I have, I am ready to share that voice to all who will listen or in this case, read. I am finally ready to have a leading role…I am ready to be that leading lady.
Unfortunately, or should I say fortunately, this realization will prove to be the Enemy’s worse nightmare. I am about to go into straight beast mode. There ain’t no stopping me now! So get ready, get ready, get ready…as TD Jakes would say.
“The Enemy’s greatest fear is that you’ll discover who you really are, what you’re really worth, and where you’re headed”.
