I’ve been hiding and I’m finally ready to show my face.
If you’ve been reading my blog for any amount of time it may seem like I’m open and vulnerable like this all of the time. But the truth is, I’m not. I’m super private and at times, I’m even reluctant to show my face.
Why? I don’t know. I think I’ve always felt like I was good in the shadows. People who know me, know me and those who don’t, don’t. Being the center of attention isn’t really my thing and even this, this blog, has been a huge faith walk for me.
For the longest, I chose a profile picture that didn’t show my face. I didn’t want to be seen or found. And sometimes, I have to convince myself to post a picture of me in an outfit I love.
Maybe it’s because the social media world can be so cruel, maybe it’s insecurity? I don’t know but I’m done hiding my face.
With that, I’m also done conforming to things and ideas that are not for me. I’m coming out of my shell bit by bit and although it’s uncomfortable, I’m doing it.
I don’t think it’s God’s design for us to hide or to be so overwhelmed by what other people think that we’re afraid to make a move or to show our faces.
2020 is one of those years where, if you can, you just have to jump out there and that’s exactly what I’m going to do.
