Owning Myself

Lately I have been taking stock of myself. It has shown up on this blog as silence, but in my offline world, ithas been amazingly fruitful. I have had more conversations, more revealing moments and more insights into who I am than in years before. This inner understandinghas had surprising outcomes.

  1. I don’t feel like I have as much to prove
  2. I know when to say no to new opportunities
  3. Likewise, I know when to say yes
  4. I can take bigger risks
  5. I can admit to being bad at something (or just disinterested)
  6. I enjoy so much more freedom found in those in between moments of life
The best freedom in knowing myself comes from the release in trying to be everything else to everyone else.

    This is perfect! “The best freedom in knowing myself comes from the release in trying to be everything else to everyone else.” Best quote! Getting to know ourselves isn’t so bad.
