Misunderstood in a world of misunderstanding. Walking in a shadow only I can see. Pain that only I can feel, ohhhh, how did I get here?

Not connecting, not understood, oh what is the point to connect with those that can not recognize the depth of a mind that works in many different avenues.

Being misunderstood, feeling alone, and disappointed.

Craving the connection of those that can resonate at a similar level of consciousness. The truth is, only one that a deep individual can appreciate.

There is so much we wanna know, I wish it was easy, but it isn’t so.

No one knows who I am, and if this was the plan, tell me why. I cry in the dark and smile in the light.

I wish it was easy, but it isn’t.

How did I get here, look at me now.

I woke up and saw my shadow. It was the shadow of the past. However, the stronger the shadow the stronger the light.

How did I get here, look at me now, I tried to pick you up, but the shadow is so wide. Keep your eyes on the stars and your feet on the ground. All deserved is a step away.

Misunderstood….ideas shining…..distance….it is great to be misunderstood…the mind like no other, the depth of the soul and only a shadow I can see. A depth that I misunderstood for ooooh so many years.

A journey of greatness, a willingness to get uncomfortable and be misunderstood, that is where great things happen. Being authentic, viewing the world through a lens of honesty and vulnerability, allowing connections, and craving that deeper level and experience can be so misunderstood.

Taking risks and speaking the mind of truth when many will turn away….misunderstood…

Seeing differences, and putting in the work to see different perspectives….misunderstood…

A journey of mistakes, success, hurt, nothing to ever be ashamed of….misunderstood…

Learning of courage and speaking up and striving to achieve big things….yet…misunderstood…..

Not allowing the chaos to catch you, grateful for all….misunderstood…

Recognizing the higher power is truly YOU….misunderstood…..

In the end, I misunderstood myself the most.

I did the crazy and left my career teaching job after 19 years to work on and build my coaching business. I took a year off to follow my dream of being a life coach and using my skills, life lessons and training to help others find meaning in their life. While I do this, I am always growing, learning and finding more purpose and meaning in my life as well. Currently, I am life coaching and fitness coaching part-time , I continue to blog, meet with clients and I am back to teaching full time in Columbus City Schools, working with gifted students, teaching.
