“As soon as you trust yourself you will know how to live.” –Goethe
As seen at http://www.facebook.com/#!/tinybuddha
That has proven true for me, and trusting myself was both a lot harder and easier than I thought. I had to surrender to who I am deep down inside rather than keep trying to be the man I thought I was supposed to be.
Awhile back a close friend made a comment to me that has deeply resonated within me and helped me to adjust the way I look at myself. We kid each other a lot because in many ways we are very different, though in key ways that truly matter we are very much the same (but he’d never admit it!) ;-D!
As he was kidding me about my sugary sweet song and similar sappiness, he added, “You might as well stop fighting it” (or something to that effect). “That is who you are.”
“That is who you are.” Yup. It’s who I am. Once I surrendered to that very basic notion, my life started to click even better into place.
May you know who you are, or better recognize it sooner than I did.
