Perhaps the strongest relationship we have in life (should be) with ourself. As I reflect on the relationship that I have with myself — I don’t fool myself very often.
What I’m saying is that my relationship with myself is one where generally, I know what I’m getting.
I know when I have an attitude and need to avoid the people I love (b/c I’m going to snap on them..), I know when I’m juiced up and about to do something magnanimous. But it started in 2001..when I told a friend, mD, that I was going to “be better.”
I realized that there was a gap b/t who I:
– Said I was;
– Who I actually was; and,
– Who I wanted to become
The gaps in some regards were astonishing. But what it showed me is that I had a lot of work to do, if I wanted to become who I always said I was. (: Read that one slow!! Let it digest…
No seriously though..once I began the process of recognizing who I was..the world couldn’t stay the same. Well perhaps the world didn’t stay the same. I think once you realize WHO you are, you begin to see the world differently. And as a result, you interact with the world differently, and subsequently your “world” changes.
I’m so amazingly thrilled that my world didn’t stay the same. Because if it had; what would that say about me?
Here’s to growth; Ciao,
