Five Minute Friday: "Older"
As I look back on my childhood, I like so many others couldn't wait to get older. I had images in my mind as a little girl as to what I would look like, what I would be doing.
It's weird seeing those images in my head as I play them back, seeing now what I saw then.
For some strange reason I pictured myself as a short blonde college cheerleader. I also pictured myself as a business woman working in an office. I thought I'd travel New York on a taxi cab in the finest business clothes there are (you know like the movies). I thought that those things would make me important.
I had this desire and if I'm really honest - I still catch myself desiring to be important.
Unlike then, now I know as I get older it doesn't require effort to be important.
If I try to be important with material things I would be missing out on what is so precious. Being Real with My Sweet Husband, My sweet children- and my dear Savior.
What makes me important doesn't require any effort - Just being Me- & that is enough!
