Many of us have looked in the mirror or reached a point in our lives where we are faced with that one haunting question, “Who Am I?” The quest for self and purpose in this world often will cross our path at the beginning, middle and often times at the end of a journey. We are standing forced to review three things, who we think we are, what we want to be, and how others see us.
In the beginning, you are told as a child, you can be whoever you want to be; that you have the ability to wield the pen of your life. For some, you are given the tools to do so, and others you must search through life for the tools to achieve a life you have always dreamed of.
But what happens to that girl that is now a woman trying to figure things out on her own, trying to understand who she is now. Endless amounts of twist and turns have to lead you here, for some helpless or hopeless looking for a change but where do you begin. I have always believed that the answer to the change you are looking for in life is inside you. Everything you need to be successful is inside of you.
Each of us has experienced different trials in our lives for a different reason because that reason will bring us to our purpose, the reason you are here.
The greatest measure you can take this year is to spend each week diving deeper into that question “Who Am I?” What are your likes, dislikes, weaknesses, strengths? This week is the first of fifty-two weeks to discover YOU. Ask the questions that are difficult for you to ask yourself, ask others, loved ones people you trust and respect their opinion. How do you see me, how can I do better, how can I be better. Do the things that you have always wanted to do.
The greatest lesson I have learned in the past three years almost four years now is live for today because tomorrow is not promised. Don’t wait to start tomorrow, start today start right now, look in the mirror and ask yourself who am I? Determine what you have once thought of yourself, get to know who you want to be, and accept who you are now. Be grateful for the process because it is what makes us.
