When I was a little girl, my grandmother always told me you are only one single soul in this world. Although your size maybe small, make it your business to have a big voice. Never lose your voice ,and you’ll never lose yourself. It took me a while to understand why my granny would say this to me all the time ,but I’ve often read one quote that helped me out. In youth we learn. In age we understand. As I have grown older, I have grown into understanding much more about the world and even more about myself as a person. Sometimes I have stumbled and lost that voice my gram gram always told me about ,but I’ve always found it. Through experience I’ve learned to not lose it again.

The past version of me was a young free spirited person. I only cared about the fun in life. I made my mistakes without worry of consequences. The present me worry about consequences often because I am now a mother of two precious boys that vastly growing into young men. I wouldn’t ever want them thinking they can wander through life having fun without thinking of consequences. I want their decisions to be wise and well thought out. I want them to know it is ok to stop and feel the sunshine against your face. It’s ok to sit alone on the beach, close your eyes, and listen to the waves crash against the sandy shores. It is perfectly fine to stop and smell the roses. Take in all the miracles of life ,and learn to appreciate your surroundings that God has so graciously blessed us with.

I feel I could have been a better person had I realized this early on. However, I do not regret the person I am today. My past transformed me into a beautiful person inside and out. i have respect for others as well as myself. I still have fun ,but I do know there are boundaries. I am leading a great life. With the help of God, I am becoming a better person daily. Now if I can learn to control my tongue!!! LOL
