So, I was thinking about my life today. Where I am in life, where I was, and where I want to be. And I realized today, that the person that I am living right now is NOT the real Kellee.
It was so weird to me, I have a picture and my mind of who the real Kellee is, and that person is not me. I believe the picture that I see in my mind is the Kellee, God called me to be. This person is sassy, she is fashionable, slim, with long pretty natural hair... (That's right, the girl is not wearing anymore weaves!) LOL! She's a diva in her own right, she's very strong and independent, and she loves, loves, loves life!
So then who is this person that I am living as today? Don't get me wrong, I have some of the qualities as the real Kellee does, but I am lacking in a lot of areas. It feels like I am living the life as the person the world told me to be, or as my situations and circumstances told me to be. I am NOT living the life of the person I was created to be.
I always hear it being said that "we grow in time". That is not always the case, right? I mean, you know we all have that ex-boyfriend that we dumped 5 years ago for being trifling, and then when he calls you out of the blue 3 weeks ago, you are not surprised that within that time, he has not grown one bit. You are not surprised when he tells you that he had 5 kids in the last 5 years, you are not surprised when he tells you that he works a telemarketing gig, and you surely aren't surprised when he tells you, that you were the best thing that has ever happen to him. And he wants you back.
I know we have all had that happen to us, at some point of our lives. Right!?! Or is it just me!! Hahaha!
Anyway, doesn't that go to show that "time" doesn't necessarily make us "grow"? So, what if we never grow to be the people we were originally created to be? How miserable of a life would that be? I hate to think that there is a possibility that I won't ever be the real Kellee!
My faith in God shows me that the real Kellee is right before my eyes, and that all I need to do is STAND UP! Is it really that easy? Yes! I believe it is! I believe God and ALL of Heaven is just waiting for us to look on the inside of ourselves, and see the real people that we were created to be... And make the decision to STAND UP!
Hit the reset button on your life... If you are not where you want to be in life, hit the reset button! Start over fresh and anew... You can do it! I am doing it right now... In the days to come, I will talk about some of the direction God is giving me to be the Real Me... He Called Me to BE!
Be Good.. Live Life.. And Above all else... Be Unusual!
