- Who am I?
I know that you are already
rolling your eyes – this is going to be a “touchy-feely” essay on knowing
your authentic self. Well you can bite me – because I am anything but
‘touchy – feely’!!! Let me tell you about myself in Readers’ Digest format:
I am a 30 something female who has an attitude. I like what I like, and
abhor what I don’t. If you are a friend, you are one until the end, or you
do something disloyal in my eyes. If you are not a friend, I will not waste
my time pretending that you are, but I will be as courteous as the situation
at hand allows. I am sarcastic and chatty, but there are those times that I
just want the world to LEAVE ME ALONE! I have a wide range of interests –
crafts, writing, design, music, sports, and many more that I will not list
(it would take too long.)
I am the eldest child in a family of three daughters – and was designated
the “peacemaker,” and that role sometimes still pops up here and there.
However, I found that sometimes I confused being the peacemaker with being a
doormat, and it took the death of someone very dear to me, to realize that.
I began speaking my mind, seeking to fulfill my wants, and it was a shock to
those I knew. Some applaud the change others shake their heads and try to
figure out what happened. It doesn’t matter either way; the trip is mine
and I am holding the ticket.
That’s it – me in a
nutshell. If you already knew me before reading this, then you know the
details that I didn’t list, but they aren’t necessary to get a sense of who
I am from the brief statement above. It took me over thirty years to be
able to formulate that personality, and it involved a lot of hard work, deep
and unforgiving searching of self, and making peace with those areas of
myself that I refused to change (because I thought that I was just fine in
You may have to take a
similar traipse through your life to figure out who you are, but then again,
maybe you aren’t as hard-headed as I am, and will catch on more quickly –
the choice is yours. What needs to occur is a no-hold-barred, pick-me-apart
like the Thanksgiving turkey journey, so you can see ALL of you – what you
consider acceptable as well as not acceptable. It’s only then that you can
really decide who it is that you want to be ‘when you grow up.’
You know those surveys that
make their way around the internet? Yes, the ones that you tell the
selected group of people who you are, what you like, don’t like, etc. That
is the type of thing to get you going here. Except you are sharing it with
no one but yourself, unless YOU really choose to do otherwise. Here is a
sample one for you to follow. I have no idea who the author is, and if it
is proprietary, please give me a holler and let me know if I need to remove
it completely, or give proper credit.

That’s the survey….might
not make a ton of sense to you right now, but it gets your mind focused on
thinking about YOU. It is perfectly fine to think about what you want,
like, dislike, etc., but most if us feel embarrassed to say that. I have no
idea why – aren’t you as important as the person next to you? I think so!
I truly believe that you need to know who you are before you can have the
highest level of success in whatever you attempt (doesn’t have to be
magickal at all.) So have some fun figuring out who you are!!!!
