I’m Not the Girl, but I am the Woman…
I’m not the girl who will call you often in a day or text you to find out where you are.
I’m not the girl who will take a million selfies to prove her beauty to you or help you impress your friends.
I’m not the girl who will lie to you to make you feel better about yourself.
I’m not the girl who wants to be in front of the camera or shine on the red carpet.
I’m not the girl who will ask you to change your lifestyle to fit mine.
But I am the woman who will support you as you fulfill your calling and conquer the opportunities to walk many red carpets.
I am the woman who will stop to admire you from time to time because when I see you I see a brilliance that takes my breath away.
I am the woman who will esteem you and ensure you know that your position as King is secure and will never be challenged by another person trying to talk to me.
I am the woman who will protect our relationship and ensure no one from the outside is able to infiltrate the empires we build together.
I am the woman who will speak life into the broken places where dreams have died and anger or hurt has taken up life.
I am the woman who will pull those dreams out by challenging you and leading you when you are struggling to push yourself.
I am the woman who will look at you and smile from ear to ear because I will always be amazed that I am blessed to spend this time with you.
I am the woman who will listen to each word you say and find myself mesmerized by the strength in your speech and purpose.
I am the woman who will call forth what isn’t, pray over you and go to war for you, and ensure there is no force that messes with you reaching all that you are created to do.
I am the woman who will stand by you when things get tough and you want to push me away for fear that I won’t stay for the muddy and messy things in life.
I am the woman who will accept your lifestyle and walk it alongside you because I understand the hours and the drive it takes to become all you are called to become.
I am the woman who will put aside her commitment issues and dive deeper into each conversation, even though I fear falling in love to the point I can’t turn back.
I am the woman who will pick you up when you are plastered on the sidewalk after a really hard week and a lot of bad news. I will love you back to form and ensure you know I am not going anywhere no matter what choices you make.
I am the woman who will embrace all that is ugly and unfamiliar not because I have to but because it is a part of you and I want to experience all of you, even when it hurts.
I am the woman who will never let you self-destruct or run away from what drives you but will lead you toward your dreams as you lead me to mine, doing so in a way that you think you are the one who brought us both safely to our dreams.
I am the woman whose #lifegoal is to see us create empires, build kingdoms, and change the world through the gifts we have each been given, encouraging one another and others along the way.
I am the woman who will ensure you up level, reach new goals, and continually become better than you were the day before, even when doing so is a challenge.
I am the woman who patiently awaits falling in love with you, but I will never be the girl who breaks your heart or hurts you.
