It is crazy how things turn out. You find the reality in the world that nothing… I mean nothing is “perfect”, as much as we want to act and pretend that it is. The truth is we are all “broken” people trying to live and survive in a “broken” world.
I come from small town rumors, mean girls, divorced parents, sibling rivalries, and trying to fit in when you do not quite seem to fit. Acceptance is what we as humans seek, we want to feel loved and wanted, and when we do not feel that, we tend to get insecure about who we are. From being the best athlete, smartest one in the class, teacher’s pet, to the girl dating the cutest guy in the school. We always want better, or what everyone else has.
Everyone talks about being different, but let’s face it, we all want to be the same, because if we are the same, we will be accepted, when you are different you give people something to talk about.
I want to give you readers an insight of WHO I AM. I am NOT the best athlete, I do NOT have the perfect family dynamic, and I definitely was NOT the smartest person in my class. I am just Callie, plain ol’ Callie, and to be honest I love the person that I am, but it took a while for me to get to this place of acceptance.
Finding God is what led me in the right direction to find my purpose.
I want to take you on a time line of my life… People, places, and events that make me, well ME! Each week you will see how I grew up, and how I changed throughout my life. You are going to see exactly what it took to get me where I am today.
Life is not easy, but it can be fun!
Enjoy my journey.
