For a couple of years one of my friends has called me Nimsy. Nimsy is a nickname she came up with to signify the new and improved Michelle that has emerged after a life altering change four years ago. I've tried to get it to spread to my other friends, but thus far it has not taken off.
But I feel that I am Nimsy. The nickname just sort of fits me.
I have become quite spiritual in the past couple of years. That's not to say I suddenly "found God", I've always believed in a greater power...but as a result of a spiritual awakening four years ago I have become more centered and more serene. In short, a different person than I had been the bulk of my adult life. A grown up? Gasp.
I set out on a journey to change what was wrong in my life. To find the "real Michelle" (or Nimsy as it were). I have a long way to go, but I truly have a firm grasp on who I am today. Now I'm continuing on trying to be the best person I can be.
So the next time you see me, please call me Nimsy.
