I Must Sing My Song

17 July 2016 Written by 

I am a song. You are a song. I am a book, and I am a picture. You are a book and you are a picture. Each one perfect. Each amazing and beautiful. Each one unique. And I am the only one who can sing my song, write my book, or paint my picture. I cannot sing your song or write your book or paint your picture, and you cannot do these things for me.


I must find my own voice so that I can sing my song, because if I don’t’ sing it, it will not be sung. It is all that I have to give, and that is enough. I am enough. You are enough. Just perfect – right now – just the way we are.


So how do I find my song? I must come home to myself. I must find myself. I cannot find my song by searching for it in others. If I continue to look and search in others, I risk the danger of becoming lost in their stories. I become lost and drift farther and farther from home.


I am home within me. My song, my story, my picture – they are all inside. Let me come home and let me sing my song, write my story, and paint my picture!

Raised on a dairy farm in upstate NY, I learned to work hard along with my five siblings. I grew up in a very conservative Mennonite-Amish church which shaped a lot of my fundamental core values and beliefs. After moving to Florida to attend college, I married and became mother to five children. Eventually, my unmanageable life came to a crashing halt and I found my way into an Al-Anon recovery program. Recovery has affected every area of my life and I love sharing the things I am learning with others so that they might also find hope for their own recovery.
