Am I Who I Am Supposed To Be?



The calendar is approaching another turning point in my life. Another year, a new number to 'label' me. I start to wonder, as I do every year around this time; Am I who I am supposed to be? Am I where I am supposed to be? Am I doing what I am supposed to be?

I never seem to know the answer. I know I have a few regrets in my life {of which I will share with you tomorrow}, but I do believe our choices, good and bad, are what makes us who we are. I don't think you can go through life without a few regrets {my opinion only of course}.

But I do know I have in my life those people that are supposed to be with me. After that, does any of the rest of it really truly matter?

I am who I am and I'm OK with that.

It's nice to get to that place in your life where you're comfortable in your own skin...I think life takes us where we are supposed to be...

Hi Catherine, I guess we all can ask these questions of ourselves... We all have regrets ---or at least have made decisions which we might have done differently at another time. However, we are human and we do what we think is best at the time.

I made some huge mistakes (first marriage) ---but now that life is so wonderful with George, I think I have made up for all of those lost years in my life. Now I can only say---no regrets; God is GOOD!!!!

Hugs,
Betsy

It's good to reflect and even better to realize how far you have come and how happy you are right now. Or not. :) I find as I get older, that I'm not so worried about who I am or what I am supposed to be. I kinda like me now--no matter what I did or didn't do. I like being this age--lots of wisdom and peace.

I can definitely relate to questioning if you're where you should be - I have done alot of that myself lately. But I believe you are right...as long as you have the right people with you the rest doesn't really matter.

The people in our lives is what makes it special but questioning is something that always seem to happen. I know I wondered if I was who I am supposed to be when I came up on a new "label" and sure there are things I wish I had done differently but I'm ok with who I am too!

I think finding out who we are is a wonderful thing. Understanding and accepting all the pieces of our past is what puts together who we are today. I know I ask questions of myself every day. Embracing life changes can be an exciting thing!
I hope that your birthday is a fantastic one, Catherine :)

Have a really great birthday, Catherine!
I think I'm ok with who I am too although I'm still waiting to be a proper grown up!- I thought it would happen on my twentieth...thirtieth...fortieth...

I like the photographic techniques at work here.

Hello, I'm pleased to meet you. I am also facing birthdays that carry a bigger number but I refuse to let that weigh me down. After all, "getting older is a privilege denied to many." Let's enjoy each moment!

I used to think that a time would eventually come in my life that I would know exactly who I am and what my purpose is here on earth...like a big light bulb would go on one day and all the answers would be there. Well I don't think it ever happens, I just think we strive to continually grow throughout our lives, always questioning "Is this enough? Is this what I am supposed to do?" I am comfortable with who I am, but I want to continue to grow and explore and expand my mind until I leave this world, because that makes it more interesting!

I think the regrets help us appreciate the present more and help us make better decisions. And no, nothing matters more than loving the people in our lives!

(And an aside... I'm having a total, official, green with jealousy over your talent, hon. Lordy I love coming here and seeing your work!)

Jaime said...

We are who we are, and the beautiful thing is that we become different people as each day passes. I suppose we keep becoming more true to ourselves.

You, my friend, are wonderful.
:)

I know I'm really late on this, but I'm pretty sure you are where you are supposed to be. And you are right, you have such a darling family, how could it not be right? Right? You are awesome Cat!
