Have you ever felt alone like you were in this big world all by yourself? There are people that are surrounding you, there are friends but you still feel lonely. I’ve been going through that phase a lot lately. I’m waiting on this season of my life to pass. It seems as though it’s been here too long. I hate negative emotions, the minute they arise I try my best to get rid of them. I realize now that negative emotions will come and that they won’t be around all the time.
I am hoping for a greater future. I think I feel bummed today because I’ve been looking for a new job and kept getting looked over. It sort of makes me feel as though I really don’t have what it takes to work a new job. When being looked over so much feelings of rejection surface. A person has to know their worth even when they don’t feel it.
A friend asked me a few days ago what it is that I like about myself. I told her that I like my ability to read people. I have a keen sense when it comes to reading people and their body language. When conversing with others I can understand exactly what they’re saying, and not only that but I know where their heart is when they’re speaking to me. I can tell when someone is being deceptive, as well as a truly honest and trustworthy person. I like that about me. There are other things that I like about myself. I like my push to persevere when times aren’t easy and fun. When I want to give up (like this job search) and call it quits there is a fighting factor in me that just refuses to give up. I like being sensitive. I like my gentle side. I like the essence of who I am.
I am Alisa Miller and the events of life has made me who I am. Looking at the whole me I wouldn’t trade myself up for anything or anyone else in the world. Yeah, I like being an African American woman. I like my natural hair and brown skin. I have my own mindset. Whenever the crowd opts to do one thing, I’m going to lag behind to evaluate the situation to see if I want to go along with the crowd. If I don’t see it fit to go along with the crowd I WILL be the odd ball and do what I desire. It makes Alisa who she is. I am proud of my accomplishments in life such as, graduating high school, being in the work field for 4 year and counting, obtaining my associate’s in business management, and for pursuing a bachelor’s degree against all odds.
I will not give people the ability to place worth on me. I say in the most humble manner that I know my worth and I like me! 🙂 I celebrate Alisa! I am happy to be Alisa! There will never be another Alisa (me) in the world! May I make my print the only way I can in the world, custom made original the only way I can do it.
P.S. Never allow anyone have the power to tell you your worth. You must know your worth, and when people emphasize it, be thankful. #thatisall
**In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you!**
