Wednesday’s Wisdom

There’s not much I need to add to this wisdom really. I guess it resonates with me because for a long time I tried to be the person I thought I needed to be. The person I thought everyone else wanted me to be. I did this to the extent that I didn’t really know who I actually was any more. I lost myself while trying to be what I thought I should be. Losing yourself is hard and it’s not helpful in the long run. Now I’m trying to find myself again. I’m trying to discover who I really am and to be real.

Does this resonate with you? Have you ever tried to be someone you’re not to please others, or for some other reason? Let me know in the comments. 😊

I’m always reading something or other. Books, social media feeds, study notes, blogs and more. Recently I’ve become even more aware of how much wisdom I come across in what I read so I decided to share some of it with you. I’m honestly not sure how consistent I will manage to be with this or how long I’ll keep it up but I’m going to try. It’s all part of the growing I need to do.

  1. Only for the first 40 years of my life! I remember that, on my 40th birthday, I gave my parents a ‘congrats on your new baby girl’ card with the explanation that it was the day I was being “re-born” into who I was destined to be rather than living as who I thought I should be for others. Almost 25 years later, it’s still a work in progress (old habits DO die hard) but I’m so much more authentic with myself and others!

    I wish you so much success and encouragement to keep on this path! The weight that lifts from you as you no longer carry your true self inside, hidden away, is incredible! You are worth it!

  2. I think I was trying to be someone else till I became a mother. Then, when I thought about what I wanted my child to be, I realized all I wanted her to be was self confident and content with herself

  3. Reblogged this on Ramblings and Ruminations and commented:
    When I read this blog, my first thoughts were “Been there, done that”. The struggle to become authentically me was a deep from which I needed to climb. Sometimes I still let a little too the edge of it, so I guess it will be something I will always need to be conscious of.
