At times in life it is wise to stop and “take stock” of where you are in life and where you think you should be. It is fairly simple to look at ourselves superficially and see what is perfect about us or what isn’t at a cursory glance. But what really makes us who we are? Is it the number of friends we have on FB? Is it how we wear our hair? Or are we the good, or bad, deeds we commit each day? I think some define themselves according to what will get them the most approval or cause the least amount of turmoil to those about them. At any given moment we redefine ourselves because we choose to follow some new conventional wisdom or standard. But is that truly our definition?
When the crowd has cleared and you sit alone what do you see within you? Are you made up of your incredible looks, your past behavior, discretions and indiscretions, your marriage or lack thereof? Or is it the relationships that didn’t last but left you with some new knowledge that makes you stronger and wiser? Perhaps you are who you are because of the one person, we all have The One, who we selflessly gave our heart to only to see them drop it on the ground and stomp it to useless little pieces. Did that make you who you are?
The take from? Other than something to think about? Instead of fixating on all those little things we have no control over, why not let hope, love and your dreams define who you are? Because no matter how bad the cards we are dealt in life, what matters most to our imprint on this Earth, is how we play them. But, that’s just something to ponder on, take it for what it’s worth to ya.
