A Work In Progress I Am

Do not wait for others to tell you what you are suppose to be doing.

I used to tussle with that question: Who/What am I, because of all the titles and subtitles, I am so many things and then, there are those things I would like to be. Life has taught me, I am two things, what I am doing now and what people think I am doing, the latter of which I can not help.

I thank God for giving me the sense to realize, most of all, I am A Work In Progress (W.I.P.). That allows me to happily wear all my hats in my service to others.

When I look back, I see so many talented individuals, with whom I have been so blessed for the opportunity from which to learn. They are who helped me to be who I am today, and for that, I am eternally grateful. Though at times, I may have let them down, today, I realize the very valuable lesson: Do not compare myself to others. That allows me to be satisfied with my best work and knowing there is always room for improvement.

When I began writing, I found myself fumbling with that part of myself. I wanted to be a writer but I found so many obstacles to over come, considering the training, time, experience, who would read it, how will I get paid, how will I live, etc.; I will be dead by the time I get all the answers.

Now, I no longer wait to call myself what God has called me to do. I am not waiting until I am successful. Being obedient, I am confidently starting now, because I have not been shown what will be in the future. You never know who you may help or whose life you may save, remembering I am a W.I.P.- a work in progress.
