Who are you? What sort of person are you? If the people who know you best, had to describe you in one word, what would that word be?
I’ve been taking a little personal inventory this week. Who am I really? I know who I want to be. I know how I perceive myself. But is that the truth?
Since our thoughts create our reality, then it’s a good idea to think about how we think.
Do I preach peace and preoccupy my mind with worry? Do I truly want a world full of Love when I am constantly judging those around me?
This self-analysis is an ongoing process, but here is what I’ve come up with so far.
1. I have a good heart. In my core, I want to Love everyone all the time. I don’t always do a very good job because I let the cares of this world and current circumstances throw me off track.
2. I tend to spend too much time alone. Yes, it’s good to shut the door and spend time in contemplation, study, and time with God, but we are all connected. We are meant to support each other. Too much time alone makes me overthink things and doubt myself.
3. I have trust issues, not just with people, but with God. That’s tough to admit. On a spiritual level I know that my life is unfolding in a divine plan and everything is being worked out for my good. I need this knowledge to live in my mind and emotions. I need to let go of a thousand little worries and let God take care of me.
I still don’t know for sure what word others would use to describe me. We like to say that it doesn’t matter what other people think of us, but I know my purpose is to help people. How can I help them in a real way, when I am a mess? I hope my one word would be kind or patient or generous, but it might be worried, over-reactive, or judgmental.
As you head into a new week, I encourage you to take some time and think about what kind of person you are and who you want to be. I know these are hard questions, but we don’t grow unless we look within for the answers. Do this with objectivity and Love.
Remember, you have a Creator who Loves you beyond words and without condition.
This week could be your best one yet!
Have a beautiful, blessed week.
I Love you all!
