You go through much of your life thinking you are this particular person. Your parents, siblings, schools, peers, jobs, friends and spouse have shaped you into who you are today. You are different today than you were yesterday. You will be different tomorrow.
But who are you really?
Did you have fantastic dreams when you were younger? Do you have fantastic dreams today? Are you smart, funny or full of life? Are you thoughtful, quiet or full of love? Are you grateful for all you have? Are you sad, lonely or fearful? What is your day like? Do you get up with a smile on your face or do you dread what might lay ahead?
Do you know that the choice is yours every moment of every day as to who you are or want to be?
It has taken me a lifetime to learn that lesson. I am who I want to be. I found the most difficult thing I did was to throw away all the padding I received from everyone in my life. Standing naked with yourself is very exciting and scary. Learning to love and appreciate yourself, just because you deserve it, is not always as easy as it seems. You are what you think.
The choice is only yours. Who are you – really?
