I've come to a point in my life, where I no longer want to try to change who I am. It's not that I've spent my life being someone I'm not. It's more like, I've spent a lot of my life trying to be something that I thought I should be, instead of embracing me.
The truth is, I'm a prissy girl. Full on girly girl. I kinda love that now.
I am the first girl on my dad's side of the family, for 4 generations. My grandmother willed me here, by sending my Mom pink things while she was pregnant with me. When I was born on Valentine's Day, that pretty much threw her over the edge of happiness.
I refused to wear pants until I was in 2nd grade. I thought they were too boyish.
When I went to visit my cousin's in California, I would tip toe through the mud, because I didn't like getting dirty, and didn't want to get my mud boots dirty either. Drove my cousin's crazy.
I refused to wear clothes if they had any stains on them. Still do.
One of my favorite stories as a girl, is when I thought my birthday was a celebration of me, that the whole world celebrated. I actually thanked a woman at a halmark store, for decorating the store for my birthday. lol
What was so traumatizing for me in Kindergarten, was learning that EVERYONE celebrated my birthday, and I had to actually bring a Valentine for everyone in my class! I was NOT happy about that. My poor mother! lol
Then, there was an Asian boy names Kim...and from that point on, I didn't like being called Kim, so I was always Kimberly, or Kimmie, or Kimber...then later Mimi, when my little brother was young and couldn't say Kimmie.
My mom has ALWAYS called me "Miss Priss" I get it...she knew from the start, this was who I am. No denying it.
Don't mistake Prissy, by weakness though. I'm tougher than most would expect. ;)
Here is a quote that I want to leave you with...It speaks right to my heart. Life is just too short to have regrets.
With so much love...
Think good thoughts.
