Being True

10 May

Each of us has our own unique personality that defines who we are. We express our individual tastes and desires and learn about ourselves and what we want. If we’re confident and self-assured we will stay true to our own personal values and choices. However, if we’re unsure about how we feel in certain situations and uncertain about how to respond we may latch onto someone else’s ideas and behaviors and adopt them as our own. Some people are very forceful and strong and if we aren’t sure we may choose to emulate them instead of voicing our own opinions. It’s easy to simply copy someone else’s ideas and views instead of figuring out our own. But pretending to be something we really aren’t will never take us where we want to go. Each choice we make has a result and if we choose behaviors that don’t reflect who we are we will construct a false façade that doesn’t have anything to do with reality. We can be inauthentic and imitate others for a while but eventually who we are will surface and the incongruity may bring confusion and complications. There may be times when we don’t know how we feel about something and need more information before we can decide. We don’t have to rush in order to agree with others and we don’t have to copy their answers. We can wait until we figure out everything and then determine our next steps. Allowing ourselves to be true to who we are before we respond will help us live honestly and sure. There is nobody else on earth exactly like us and our opinions and suggestions are important. We are smart enough to understand any situation before us and can take the time we need to find the best answers going forward.

Ideas change as time passes and what was once all the rage is now old news. If we change our opinions and standards every time the world around us changes we’ll be like leaves in the wind, tossed here and there with no direction or destination in mind. If we don’t define who we are and what we believe others will have trouble trusting and relying on us because each new idea will pull us away from where we are. There are always endless choices available and we must find the ones that best reflect our personal ideals and motives. We are the only ones who can define who we are. Understanding our true nature and desires, and then choosing the roads that emulate them will bring us the success we seek.

It may take time to discover what we really want and where we want to go. Until we define the way forward we can explore all possibilities around us. We will know when something fits and will find the road we want to travel. Our futures are ours to design and we can create the lives we want when we make the choices that take us there. All options are on the table and nothing can hold us back from success. We are strong and powerful and will find the way forward.

Today if you’ve been following along with those around you because you aren’t sure where you want to go, remember your destiny is yours to create. You can go anywhere and do anything. Think about what you want the most and then start forward toward the goal. There is great success ahead for you and nothing will stand in your way.
