I’m 27, I love myself and I’m awesome. Now, it sounds a bit conceited, but that’s not how I meant it.
We all have a time in our lives where we don’t really like ourselves; we talk about our shortcomings, saying things like, “IF I were prettier, thinner, more talented, smarter,” etc. Yeah, maybe our talents need developed over time (I’m finding this to be the case as a writer and actress), but that doesn’t mean that we’re not pretty enough, thin enough, talented enough, smart enough…or good enough.
While struggling to find my place in life, my calling, I constantly thought about how I needed to change all these things about myself. I forgot about the fact that I was carefully designed by my Heavenly Father, an Artisan and Craftsman Who spared no small detail. He created me for a special purpose. If you don’t believe in God, take some time and read the Bible, without bias and with an open mind. You’ll see.
Anyway, I love myself because God loves me.
Here are some things about me:
I grew up in a suburb of Dayton, Ohio.
I spent many summers in San Antonio, Texas, visiting my grandparents on my dad’s side.
My dad passed away from a heart attack when I was almost 4.
I went to a private Christian school from Kindergarten through 9th grade, but I found God on my own when I went to public school.
I was almost arrested for stealing at age 15.
I spent a LOT of time in detention and Saturday School from 8th-12th grade due to backtalking the teachers (at private school) and tardies (both private and public school).
I majored in Electronic Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Geography and International Studies before choosing Paralegal.
I learn more from life and from successful businesspeople than I do from professors. I have somewhat of a distrust for most professors (until, of course I know that they practice what they preach).
I write books. I’m working on two right now.
I work for a law firm and a newspaper.
I am a freelance copywriter/content writer.
I have my own business through Amway. And yes, it does work. Anyone who says otherwise quit too soon.
I have many acquaintances, but few close friends.
I have a slight obsession with Beverly Hills and the west side of Los Angeles.
I will be a millionaire in a couple of years, maybe sooner.
I plan to have a “home base” but I will live in different cities all over the world for a couple months at a time. Pack lightly, Meggan!
Oh yeah, my name is Meggan. I used to hate it, but I am actually about as fond of it as one person can be with their own name.
I no longer long for things that other people have. I know that if I want something, I can earn it myself.
I am not a democrat, although I have nothing against people who feel they are.
Don’t get into a political discussion with me. My voice gets very deep and the gloves come off.
I do voice overs. I can sound like anyone from a big man to a little tiny girl.
I love roller coasters, leopard print, hummus, fart jokes, and wearing scarves.
I often dream of flying, but because I love heights.
Why I’m on WordPress:
I used to be skeptical about blogs, but I realize that we are in the age now, where opportunities are rich, but mostly so if we’re globally visible. I’m always looking for writing opportunities.
I feel I have some great things to share (I read leadership and personal growth books) and I can help someone out there.
What I hope to accomplish on WordPress:
Make a difference.
Make it a habit to write every day.
This is a sounding board I have where I don’t have to stick to one topic all the time.
