“Each of us has the right and the responsibility to asses the road which lie ahead and those over which we have traveled, and if the feature road looms ominous or unpromising, and the road back uninviting-inviting, then we need to gather our resolve and carrying only the necessary baggage, step off that road into another direction. If the new choice is also unpalatable, without embarrassment, we must be ready to change that one as well.”
Every Autumn and interestingly enough almost always around my birthday, I feel the same urge. To look ahead and try to imagine a bit of what I’d like the next 12 months of my life to be. This year is a bit different as I will be focusing within this time while looking to try and become my own best friend.
““My best friend is the one who brings out the best in me.”
Henry Ford (1863 – 1947)
I understand how peculiar it might look but it’s been in my heart for quite a while now and I am ready to give it an honest try. I am curious to see how my own life can be transformed just by looking at it from a different set of eyes. Yes, I know what you are thinking:” Anyes, You are still the one looking into your life”, granted…the difference however will be the perspective from which my life will be observed.
You see up until now I have lived to some extent, with the intent to please everyone around me, regardless of how I really felt inside. Coming to this new chapter in my life will certainly bring on quite a bit of change. For one, I believe my inner dialogue will reach unseen proportions but it’s a risk I am willing to take for the betterment of who I am. As usual I will be sharing with you my discoveries.
Another interesting journey is now beginning 🙂
Is it silly for me to be feeling so excited?
