As we approach adulthood We are told our futures need to be planned out before we can walk across that stage. As seventeen year olds we are asked to choose our paths But we still have so many experiences to be had How could we possibly know who we are? What I do know is this. I am Georgia. I am loud, I am rambunctious I wear my beliefs on my sleeve I am uncontrollably opinionated. I think Hillary Clinton is insane and I think Donald Trump is arrogant I think abortion is disgusting, and needs to be abolished I think Goldfish are better than Cheez-Itz And I think Coke is better than Pepsi I recklessly pursue a strong relationship with God Afterall, when the world falls away, He is all we’ll have to cling to. I am a Proverbs 31 woman in the making or at least, I try to be. I don’t think there is a position of grace and dignity higher than being a Proverbs 31 woman. I am a Jackie, in a world full of Marilyns. I love classic cinema. I think James Dean and Audrey Hepburn changed the world. I think Grace Kelly ought to be every girls icon and hero Instead of Kim Kardashian. I am a dog person. I am a pearl wearer I am an Alabama fan I am a football fanatic I am a shopping enthusiast I am a Dancing With The Stars and The Voice watcher But then the seasons change and I am not always who I was before In the summer I am a barefoot free spirit I ride rollercoasters and lay in the sand Then the leaves turn and school starts and I am a new me I am a Starbucks drinking insomniac I spend every moment of my day working towards goals that may be out of my reach Then the grasses die, and the snow begins to fall and I finally give myself a breath of fresh air I hike in the mountains I sing Christmas Carols I celebrate our Lord And then the rain begins to fall And it falls for what seems like forever And life starts all over again in the spring. I am a constantly changing being Aren’t we all? Everyday is an opportunity for new experiences and new learning I am always someone new I am always transforming But I am me And that’s the best thing I could be.
