Know Thyself.

Do you know yourself?  Do you think you know yourself but really you have no f*#&g clue?

I know who I am.  I am not perfect.  I make mistakes. I am flawed.  I own those mistakes and imperfections. They make me who I am.  I am vulnerable.

I know who I am.  I am confident but I know my limitations.  I am far more confident than some might give me credit for; but they don’t know the real me.  They don’t know how much I sacrificed and for how long to be the person I am today.

I know who I am.  I am not confrontational; I avoid it like the plague.  I will hold disappointment inside for years because it’s just easier to deal with than openly revealing a lie.

I know who I am.

I shed my ego a long, long time ago.

And I’ve been free ever since.

  1. I find it difficult to be self-aware when life is so busy and you don’t have time to think! Especially when every experience and encounter with the world has an effect on your personal identity. I think I am self-aware, but sometimes when I have a moment to check-in with myself I realize that something has changed, like my ideas, priorities and opinions. After having my baby around me for a year I realized that my priorities completely shifted (which is why I am quitting my job and moving!).

    I don’t know how you do it!
