When I started on this journey to become the best version of myself, the first question that stumped me was “who exactly is that?”
Followed promptly by a barrage of others…
What do I want? What sort of person do I want to be? What do I stand for?
Even the smallest of activities resulted in an almost meditative decision-making process about what it meant for the person I wanted to be. I had been someone else on the outside for so long, that I didn’t know the person within.
I looked outwards toward the world, picking out qualities in others which I admired, and tried them on in my mind, just as any shoe lover might mentally “try on” the latest pair of Jimmy Choo’s. Some were scary, and forced me out of my comfort zone, others fit as neatly and perfectly as Cinderella’s glass slipper when Prince Charming finally tracks her down. All of them made me wonder why I had waited soo long. I had missed soo much.
If you are at a loss for the kind of person you want to be, just take a look around you. Hit the streets, the internet, try a new activity (ESPECIALLY if it’s something you wouldn’t have usually done!), and you may in fact hate it as much as you thought you would have, but you might also meet some amazing people, with equally amazing qualities.
Have a fantastic day guys and gals! Crush your goals!
