Hey Ribbons, I know it’s been a little while, but I was hit with writers block and I just couldn’t get my words out on the page. We just had a long weekend in the UK, so I feel refreshed and I’m back with something that has been on my mind these past few weeks.
Who are you becoming and are you happy with who that person is?
I asked myself this question about a week ago and my answer to the latter was yes.
Of course I was pleased with my answer, because I mean, who doesn’t want to be happy with who they’re becoming right? 2017 so far has been a great year filled with self-improvement, self-awareness and just all round contentment, however, it’s also been a year filled with tests, trials and a bit of sadness. (You could say every year is like that with it’s own share of ups and downs, but how I handled it all this year is what made me answer yes to my initial question).
You see, the person in life that you will be with the most is yourself. No matter who comes in and out of your life and even when you are in the presence of others, you are ultimately still with yourself. So you have to ask yourself, what type of person do you want to travel with? What type of person do you want to wake up in the morning with? What type of person do you want to see at the end of the day when you go to bed? Because that person is you and it’s your responsibility to be the best version of yourself to be with.
I know I want to spend my life with a person who knows right from wrong, who knows when to let things go, who’s not full of hate and anger and who’s able to smile and be carefree. Which is why I can answer yes to that question, because I am proud of who I’m becoming and I know I will only get better.
