Who are you?
Be yourself, everyone else is already taken! -Oscar Wilde
Who are you? Do you know yourself? Do you like yourself as you are?
No? … work on it! Become who you want to be. Be the person you feel you should be.
Yes? You know everything? What you like, what you don’t, what you need, what you don’t? You know why you’re here and what can change for the better? Let’s find out…
Do you like being by yourself? Most people don’t, because that is the time of reflection, a time when they start thinking about what they do and what they could do, what has happened and how else it could have ended up. These thoughts then end up showing you the real you and the discrepancy between who you believe you are and who you really are. Get to know you, get to know what your inner self thinks about it all, and model that so it is what you want it to be. Yes, it might bring you down at first, but if you don’t do it, you’ll never be happy. Your inner self and your overall image of yourself have to be the same.
You might realize you didn’t react on the street when someone was asking for help? That sticks to your thoughts, well, next time think of this faster, on the spot, and react. What if it was you the one needing help? Would you have liked people to ignore your cry?
My mother always said to me while growing up: Never do to someone something you wouldn’t want done to yourself! Leaving someone in need, without helping, is for sure something you wouldn’t want happening to yourself, so… be nice, help. You don’t have to risk your life for a stranger, you don’t have to give everything at once, but you can make that stranger’s life a little better by giving a hand for a minute or two. They ask for money? I’m sure sometimes you don’t mind at a store saying to the cashier “keep the change”… how about giving that change to this person in need instead? Why is the cash change at the store different than the cash change this person needs? Because you don’t think about it on the spot, that’s why.
Don’t be afraid to talk to yourself (well, not out loud of course 🙂 …unless that makes it easier sometimes) and find out what you need to change.
YOU can do it! The Universe has given us everything we need to make that change ourselves, the human being is the most versatile and amazing creature there is (that we know of) and can do anything it wants. You can learn anything you want, you can be the person you want to be, you can become the person you admire and you can be happy. All it takes is honesty with yourself and motivation!
