Who were you meant to be in the first place?
Have you ever pondered this? Even just a tiny bit?
Well, I have. And given that I have a propensity for ponderings, it’s likely been more than just a tiny bit.
If you’ve been around my blog for a while, then it’s likely that this truth looks familiar.
That is because I shared it on the post about turning the page to my 41st birthday.
The image is of me capturing a sunset (one of my favorite things to do) in my hometown before my mother and began our 2nd journey to Scotland.
Something that a few years ago I could never have fathomed happening once, much less twice (and I’m secretly hoping for many more).
The age of 40 was a big year of growth for me.
A digging away at the layers of who I’d been told that I was and searching for the person that I’d always been.
Even though December tends to be a busy time, I deliberately take moments to reflect on how far I’ve come and what I’ve accomplished over the year. I look at what worked and what didn’t. I decide if I focused my attention on the areas and people that I really wanted to or if I just fell into patterns without mindfulness.
I also make plans for goals I’d like to achieve in the upcoming year.
The main one always being to live in my authenticity.
To keep seeking what that looks like.
This quote speaks deeply to my soul.
I want to become who I’ve always been.
I hope that it speaks to your soul as well.
If it does, let me know what it says to you.
Let your light shine!
