I want to send a big HELLO 👋🏻 to all of you that hang out with me here every week and introduce myself and give a special welcome to YOU, that have just joined us! 🙏🏻
I am Desirée.
I am a mama of four INCREDIBLE humans.
I am a Spaniard that has lived in the USA for over 23 years.
I am 45 years old.
I am a daughter of God, and I love Him so much!
I also love big earrings...
(Wait, but you are too old to wear big earrings.)
Umm, I’m letting my silver grow...
(Wait, why? You are too young to let your gray show!)
I am starting a new professional adventure...
(Wait, that’s way too risky at your age, don’t you think you are too old to start over?)
I live with my daughters...
(Wait, you don’t have a husband? You are too young to be alone, you should find someone.)
(Wait, before you say anything else, let me tell you who you are, what you should wear, what you should be doing, and who you should share your life with.)
For the longest time, (during all my years), I had a big addiction: I wanted to be LIKED by everyone around me - I tried to listen to all the voices and please them all, and the inevitable happened, I failed at it... BIG TIME!
I’m learning that I’m not the only one with this little problem! - Are you there? Too many voices? Too many wants?
Sometimes we are so preoccupied with having APPROVAL and FIT IN that we lose complete sense of who we are. When this happens, we become scared and insecure even though we look confident. We become weak and lost, even though we look strong and put together. We become angry and lonely, even though we look happy and social.
As we tried to be LIKED, we forget WE ARE LOVED!
WE ARE CHILDREN OF GOD!
Because WE are HIS...
WE DON’T HAVE AN EXPIRATION DATE TO BECOME THE BEST VERSION OF OURSELVES.
WE ARE FULL OF BEAUTY AND LIGHT.
WE ARE HIS MOST PRECIOUS CREATION.
WE ARE IMPERFECT HUMANS LOVED PERFECTLY BY A CELESTIAL FATHER.
WE. ARE. LOVED!
I’m so HAPPY that there is no such thing as “too old” or “too young”, “too early” or “too late” for Him that knows us all!
