Who am I? Who do I strive to become in 2013?

Who am I? Who do I strive to become?
These are questions that we’ll continually ask ourself for as long as we live. I am not sure if we’ll ever have a final answer to the question: “Who am I?”

Sometimes, it isn’t the answer that tells us who we are. Instead, it is the search for the answer that reveals the “who” in us.
The “who” that is beyond material possessions and desires. The “who” that helps you discover your passions, desires, peace, happiness, joy, and love.

As you are busy drafting a 2013 resolutions, take a moment to reflect on:

  1. the person you are today,
  2. the person you were a year ago, and
  3. the person you strive to become in the days to come.

As we begin anew, my wish for you is to make quality time for yourself. To make your Self a priority. To develop self love.
Why? Because love begets love. Because the healthier you are physically and emotionally, the healthier everyone who surrounds you will become.

Life is an interesting and adventurous journey. Take the time to cherish it. Why? Because of all resources in this world, time is irrecuperable!

I hope the poem below will be your friendly companion through stormy weathers and sunny days. May this poem remind you how incredibly important you are, in a non egotistical way. 😉

The Guy in the Glass by Dale Wimbrow, (c) 1934

When you get what you want in your struggle for pelf,
And the world makes you King for a day,
Then go to the mirror and look at yourself,
And see what that guy has to say.
 
For it isn’t your Father, or Mother, or Wife,
Who judgement upon you must pass.
The feller whose verdict counts most in your life
Is the guy staring back from the glass.
 
He’s the feller to please, never mind all the rest,
For he’s with you clear up to the end,
And you’ve passed your most dangerous, difficult test
If the guy in the glass is your friend.
 
You may be like Jack Horner and “chisel” a plum,
And think you’re a wonderful guy,
But the man in the glass says you’re only a bum
If you can’t look him straight in the eye.
 
You can fool the whole world down the pathway of years,
And get pats on the back as you pass,
But your final reward will be heartaches and tears
If you’ve cheated the guy in the glass.
