This Is Who I Am

 In Weekly Forum Discussion

We just had the opportunity to celebrate International Women’s day! Yay! I am so proud to be a woman – everything about it! From lipstick to high heels and yes, even the monthly time that allows me to drink wine and eat chocolate with no guilt, and have an excuse for my crazy mood swings. We have all been blessed with superwoman powers and with that just being a woman makes me powerful!

My superpower is my heart. I’ve been blessed with a big one! I feel deeply; I have the nurturing, motherly thing going on. From the time I was little, I have mothered and cared for everything. All my baby dolls were tucked in every night because they had real feelings (my daughter has carried on this trait). I nurtured my pets and any living creature (I’m not a fan of spiders and bugs, but could never and still can’t bring myself to squish them). Any baby that finds itself within arm’s length is cuddled and rocked. I still try cuddling my kids, but they’re getting too big to fit into my lap. Thank goodness for nieces and nephews. 🙂

I am someone who tries very hard to solve everyone’s issues, which can be good and bad, when I take on more than I can handle. I can’t handle seeing people hurt, but it’s something I can’t help, I feel energies, and am easily affected by them. When someone else hurts, I hurt and can feel their sadness and pain. I think this is common for most people, but I have such a hard time letting it go. One of the very reasons I work so hard on myself is to make sure I keep my head above the water!

Everything I do, I try to do my best. I put my whole heart into two of my favourite passions: cooking and baking. I often make a joke to the kids saying, “Today in Krystle’s Kitchen…” they just laugh. On a serious note, there’s something amazing about being in the kitchen creating healthy, beautiful meals that everyone can enjoy. On the days when they thank me three times for dinner, I know it’s a win!

My son Kaydn and me recently had a conversation with my mom about how we believed plants had feelings. If people are able to change the molecules in a jar of water with negative and positive energies, then why isn’t it possible that a living thing might have some kind of feeling? Which is why we treat our plants with love, and I have never had a green thumb of any kind, but my houseplants are flourishing!

This is me, it’s who I am. I was born this way and I am learning how to use my superpower to spread love and light in a world where there is so much hate.

To all the beautiful women, you go girl!
