Art of Becoming

Often times when we think about the word becoming its thought of as a moment of transition. Typically, it indicates that there is an end in sight and a moment when the transition will be complete. Initially, that is just what BecomingTheMrs was all about. It was a journey to my wedding day, a journey to becoming the woman that would be addressed as Mrs. and no longer Ms. During the transition of BecomingTheMrs I began to realize that becoming for me never really ends...especially in a marriage! I begin to find that just as things were transitioning up to the big wedding day, contrary to belief, that's not the end of the journey of becoming; it was merely the beginning of the story.

Me reflecting as I prepare to put on my wedding gown.

As, I approach three years of marriage I have come to realize that marriage is similar to an art exhibit or Gallery. You see so many stages of the of the artist's evolution in their craft. You can see growth, highs, lows and extreme triumphs. Have you noticed that some of the best exhibits are the ones that are of those who have passed on or have ended the journey of their craft? That's what completes the story. That is the Art of Becoming.

When I was inducted into the motherhood club it was a this conundrum of balance. I'm here to tell you that still exists four kids later. I am still working daily on becoming a better mom, better spouse, better spiritual servant, better daughter...heck better blogger and the list goes on. To drive in my point, women we are always in a season of becoming and that's not a bad thing. That shows that you are human and you are in the business of growth. Just remember that whatever you are working on becoming is a process. Nevertheless, find great pride in whatever it is that you are becoming. You will get there girl and you will be great! You do not have to focus on the the end but focus on the journey and make it intentional. Absorb all that you are learning. Embrace how you are changing and most importantly remember

You are always becoming,
