Every Wednesday Jamie of Jamie Ridler Studios poses a thoughtful question to which many resoind.
This week's question is
Who is the “you” you wish to be?
At age 57 you would think I would know who I am. But it is the twist to the question - who do I wish to be - that makes it more difficult.
I know Iwish I was more of an extrovert, more assertive. I wish I could express my creativity more often and more uniquely me.
Kavindra, in a very special post yesterday, "Lessons from Phoenix", offered a lovely story and assurances that we are all of worth no matter what we look like or what we do. Here is a brief glimpse of her words:
"What is my worth in this world? What is my work? Can I make a difference, even if I am small, unimportant, bland, even sometimes look ugly or useless in others eyes?
...you can touch others, you can bear witness, you can love those who come your way ...
You just have to be willing to ignore any labels, and be the best lover to those around you you can be. "
So, in the final big picture, my small wishes must give way to one big wish - that I give love and care to all I meet.
