Be True To You

Our world is ever changing, always growing.  With everything that is going on in the world and how busy our daily life is, it is easy to lose apart of yourself.  It is easy to get lost in the crowd.

The important thing to remember is to always be true to you.  Wherever life leads you, always return to what keeps you grounded.  Life is so full of distractions.  When we are grounded, it enables us to see clearer and discover what our distractions are.  A distraction can be a good thing as long as it is temporary.

So how do you stay true to who you are?  It is easy, you never forget who you are.  There may be times during your life when you do forget who you are.  That is when friends and family are there to remind you.  Life happens and sometimes we forget what our favorite hobby is or what sport we liked to play or how good we were at doing something.  Somewhere, somehow we lose track of all of our unique and fun qualities.  Sometimes, we have to think back to the the last time we did something that we really enjoyed doing.

I think our life is about helping others and remaining true to who we are.  It actually sounds pretty easy, but it isn’t.  Here is a test to see how many distractions you notice throughout your day?  You have to take everything into account; traffic, news, children, family, friends, work, co-workers and pets, etc.  Not to mention all the work around the house and all the running that you have to do.  How much time, after all those wonderful, sometimes crazy distractions, do you have to devote to being true to yourself, your goals, and your hobbies or to nourish your soul?  It is not that easy.  It is actually easier to lose yourself than remind yourself of who you are.

The best thing to do is to remind yourself every morning of who you are; your likes, dislikes, goals, dreams and hobbies.  During our life, time has a way of escaping us, while we are so busy running things we lose track of who we are.  Do something each day that you like to do and will make you smile.

Relationships will come and go, some will be easy and some will be very hard.  It is important to give to the relationship, but you never want to lose yourself in it.  When people grow, they change.  Just as you accept change in yourself you have to accept and appreciate the change in others.

Alana, thank you so much for sharing your thoughts. There are some days which are crazier than others and that is fine. But, you always have to return to what is familiar to you. Each day do something that YOU like to do, however simple or magnificent that may be. You always have to return to it. Sing, dance, smile, have fun...be you!!!

It is so easy for an adult (especially, dare I say it, a woman) to disappear in an avalanche of having to give care, having to give support, and playing many roles at once. It is so hard to remember the true you. Many caregivers fall into that trap. Right now, I can remember me - but what happen when things get so crazy? They will, one day.
