Who Am I?

What happened?!!!! Where the hell am I? Who lives in this house?!!!!!! Where did this dog come from?!!! Is that my car? Who is that alien in my home? I know I have always wondered if I would be taken by an alien spaceship to escape the pain and trials of life. I do know people who wish it every day. Believe me! I guess it is just like the lottery and the chance of that happening is slim. So, here I am sitting in my home wondering why? Who the hell am I?!!

Something happened a few years ago and finally after so many emotional and painful struggles for years, I just got fed up one day! And then, only then I just could not recognize myself and began to change! Slowly I became empowered to be the person I am deep inside without any distractions or outside manipulations like a long time ago. But this time I was also bringing experience into my new "life puzzle" that I had never had in my life many years ago. Slowly and gently I ventured to find the person that I had hidden away. Where did she go? Well she disappeared for a while to avoid pain and to hide from the world. Easier that way and besides it is better to hide out then deal with crazy people!

My guards were up and they were not coming down for just anyone or anything! That's right. I am real tough. Watch me! Watch me kick some butt!

Please my friends do not panic! I am fine. Really. Hear me out. This is a lesson to be learned. Trust me.

I remember how I was as a child really clearly before the age of eight years old. Then there is a big gap in my memory until I reached the age of thirteen. I started to think about love then and when I ventured into my first year in highschool, it just got me BIG TIME like a wave in the ocean before you see it. WHAMMO I was struck by the love of a young man at the tender age of 15. He was wonderful and loving and I could not keep myself from feeling him all of the time...every day. I loved him. Love. AH yes. What a beautiful thing.

As I got older and went on to new relationships, I slowly disappeared into the background and made everything work for everyone else. I am the amazing Super Woman! I can do magic! Watch me as I collapse from exhaustion! Watch me as I get angry! Watch me as I start to make things work for everyone else even if it does not work for me. Watch me lose the passion. Watch me ignore my needs and put others first. Watch me just go through the motions. Watch me be someone else!!!!!

Then one day my heart finally opened like magic and let it all back in. It was beautiful as I felt overpowered by my feelings like a waterfall flowing over my heart. I started to write more about love and then everything happened. Slowly I found myself again and surrounded my heart with people who love me and who care about everything I do. Passion surrounds me every day and I am so excited about life and getting to know myself again! Love is everything! NOTHING ELSE MATTERS.

Change is good. Change is what makes us who we are. Trust is a big part of change. Embrace this change. Devour the love! It is amazing!

..well - change has many meanings - both good and bad - and perhaps the reason why we often 'balk' at the paradigm effect ...... your hubs are always appreciated by me ...... and remember one thing - you were there for me in the beginning with support and even a hub dedication in which I will never ever forget - you are a person of class, good taste, and dignity - and if I could fill your swimming pool full of flowers then I would ...... lol lol .... swimming pools may be a decadent image, yes, but it sounds nice - dosen't it!!!

How wonderful to find yourself and get you back. Change is really hard. I could seriously relate to being 'trained' to put everyone else ahead of my own needs. Loss of passion, loss of meaning, loss of purpose. It's not easy brushing off the wounds and walking differently. A very good saying by Samuel Sagan fits well with your hub: "You don't change by solving your problems, you solve your problems by changing." Though changing is not as easy as you may think. Thumbs up to your hub.

There are many "re-awakenings" in life...each time there is a choice to either learn from it and become a better person, or allow it to overwhelm us and be destroyed by it. We always have a choice. I'm glad you reach out and seek the better way, GPAGE...nice to meet you.

GPage... wonderful writing as usual. Great stream of thought and emotion. I have to admit that I often wondered about the ALIENS, and why they did not come for me, while I was out sailing on the Sea... such a perfect target, but I guess we can't win all the time. Change is good... adapting to it is hard. Best, JM

James..thank you for being here! If anyone knows about change...you do! I'm starting to come out from the other side now. The clearing and the flowers are beautiful. The air feels better. I feel alive once again. So "change is good" but it takes a while....it takes special moments too. Change is lovely. G
