“I’m not aware of too many things / I know what I know / If you know what I mean…” (Edie Brickell & New Bohemians – What I am)
My husband’s screen on the airplane showed the flight stats. It said “imperial” and “metric.” I always knew the US was NOT metric. But I didn’t know it had a name for it.
Now my husband is telling me it was named for the actual length of the emperor’s foot.
Learn something new every day!
Often, we know what we are not.
Growing up, I knew I didn’t fit in. I knew I wasn’t like them.
Less so was my focus on what I was:
A thoughtful, kind girl with a heart of gold who would go on to be a healer and a helper for her future clients, family members, and friends.
It’s easier to see something and say we are NOT that.
It takes more time, more discernment, to define WHAT we ARE. The first step is courage—to see yourself for what you are, not what you think you should be, or how others think you should be, or what you think others think you should be.
The second step is a bit more effortless. Now, just sit back and observe yourself. What makes you tick? How do you behave in your natural habitat?
Get to know YOU.
And then stop taking yourself for granted!!!
