Know Thy Self…
That’s the saying I strive for. The one I’m told will ultimately be the most beneficial to my time here on Earth. And I think I do know myself; in as much as I can right now. Cause I’m also a WIP (work in progress). I’m not done cooking yet, there are things I don’t know. For a long time I have felt pressure to know the right answer to things. I have felt pressure to answer questions like; What do you want to do? Where do you want to go? Where do you see yourself in 5 years? And I have felt like my answers were concrete so I avoid answering those questions. I don’t want to avoid those questions any more and so I need to declare, to myself and the world,
I can change my mind.
Who I am and what I want now might not be who I am or what I’m doing in 5 days, let alone 5 years. And I am finally comfortable saying that it’s suppose to be that way, I’m not going to feel guilty for being honest with myself about that. I DON’T KNOW! 🙂
Each day I live I am blessed with something new. With a possibility to bring me closer to Truth and I’m not arrogant enough to say I have that figured out yet – I don’t know it all. And I won’t know it till I’m living it and I’m going to be ok with that answer. I am happy to be a Work In Progress. I want to change and grow – that is life.
Life is change.
Stasis is death.
So I will no longer feel guilty for being somewhat ambiguous in answering those questions. I will no longer feel “less than” for being honest in saying I don’t know I haven’t tried that yet. I will celebrate the fact that I don’t know – that I am actively learning who I am and that process won’t end until I end which I trust won’t be for a while.
Wanna celebrate with me?
