What are you afraid of? Are you afraid they will think you are not sparky enough? Not wonderful enough? Not good enough? Too unusual or too geeky?

Marianne Cantwell from Free Range Humans  taught me a lot about being myself and she inspired me to be free to express myself in a way that I can be proud of and not hold back.
I am an introvert. I am still feeling my way. I cried the other day after I danced for the Lord in what I thought was a private place.

And every once in a while, when you’re not busy getting your to-do list checked off or giving your time to the people in your life who always seem to need you—when things get real quiet—you feel absolutely desperate.

You hear the clock ticking, and it’s the ticking off of the moments of a life that’s passing you by.

You see a whole string of days ahead of you. Out of bed. Off to work. Watch the clock. Count the hours ‘til the weekend. Rejoice on Friday evening. Lament on Sunday night. Repeat.

Nothing new. Nothing real. Nothing joyful.

You know, somewhere inside you, that there has to be more than this.

I know you. I am you.
