The Girl Then, The Woman Now

Often times I think of people from my past, wishing they could have known the woman I am now.

I used to be a girl who was constantly searching for something- searching for identity, happiness, and acceptance. Insecure and scared, I didn’t know where to turn- and I didn’t know the first step was to look within.

I think of relationships I could have strengthened, situations I could have handled differently, and opportunities that could have flourished.

However, if it wasn’t for the girl I was then, I wouldn’t be the woman I am now.

I had to learn a lot of lessons the hard way. I had to lose in order to gain, and I had to fall to rise even stronger.

I wouldn’t take back those things the girl then did, for today I’m the woman who can recognize all the good in my life. I’m a woman who no longer searches on the outside for happiness.

Although I can’t change the past, I can move forward and view life through a different lens- a lens that is a little older, a little wiser, and much more grateful.
