As a Man Is

As a man is, so he sees. — William Blake.

One of the most important thing to ask oneself is, “who am I?” And then to ask, “do I behave and react like the woman/man I am?”

One can live a whole life being someone you aren’t. I think all of us have had those “that’s not who I am!” moments. But if they become longer than a moment or two, then you have some work to do.

I’ve had a lot of experience with this question, and coming to grips with the person I was versus the person I had become. The one thing I can assure you is that when you become who you are, comfortable in your own skin, with no masks or disguises, you are a lot better off.

“Who am I” is great question for a morning’s, week’s, or a lifetime’s meditation.
