Those of us who feel driven should never stop in our pursuit of true happiness. What drives us makes us who we are. I can’t tell you the number of times that my inner spark has caused other people to feel uncomfortable or question my motives, reasons, sanity… seriously fill in the blank with whatever you wish. I have lost jobs, friends, family, lovers………. many of whom have been known to look at me with concern and say “but I thought you would have outgrown that by now”. Answer me this – how can a person outgrow themselves? What a conundrum it would be if during our maturation process, our personalities succeed in turning us into a different person than who we truly were to begin with. To me that is an insane thought. Growing up does not mean trading in who we are for someone new. It’s a shame, but until we realize who we are and what we have inside of us, many of us will never become the person we were meant to be. When you hear or see that famous expression “go for it” – that’s not a question- it’s an answer.
What are we drawn to? That is our essence. What do we surround ourselves with? That is our future. We should not shy away from any lifestyle that we honestly crave. The only question to be asked is – do we know ourselves enough to distinguish between honesty and superficiality? By getting to the core of our hearts, we can begin to unfold all of our inner most desires and that exploration is the key to becoming our ultimate best, our highest level of functioning and joy.
