Who Do You Really Want To Be ?

Take Some Time To Consider ?

There have been thousands of studies and surveys

All telling people how to find themselves

They might help narrow the field

Nobody can possibly know but you

Most people want to spend the time

Then when it comes to work they change their mind

Even though they spend their whole life searching

Is it about your own feelings

Your dreams and wants can be hidden

Your actions can lead to you to clues

Over the years there have been everyone

From family to friends telling us what we should do

Take the first step

Spend the day doing the things you love

Make a list

Take your time

Have fun

See what you have discovered

Go from there

The true you is waiting to be discovered

Interesting, Dream On. I don't have to find myself. I have never been lost :) I find that such a weird statement "You need to find yourself."

Jodah I think many of the problems of today come from people not happy with who they are and the choices they have made and they don't take responsibility for their actions. Instead they place the blame on other innocent people. I often read in the news of angry people hurting others everything from road rage to violence and gang shootings. Jodah you may have always known what you planned on doing for a career and did everything to follow your dreams. Other people may not have made the right choices and have had bad influences that put them in a bad place. If you keep following the same pattern nothing good can happen. Prisions are filled with a lot of smart people who keep making the wrong decisions and unfortunately they could have ruined their future and their life. Let me know what you think ? I will try to explain it better. Thank you for reading and sharing.

Yes, you are right, Dream On. Some people's lives are shaped from unfortunate circumstances, out of their control, others make bad decisions and don't really know their place in the world. I haven't had everything in my life go smoothly by any means, but I have never doubted who I am or that I had the right intentions.

Jodah I don't understand why crime shouldn't be almost non exsistent. We have come so far in technology to improve our way of life. Everyone can find almost anything with a search of a button. Yet a lot of people still are very unhappy. You can go to any library and use their computers for free. Growing up I thought if I could learn what other people have learned to make life easier and more enjoyable life could be so much fun. It has been ever sense. Maybe you could explain to me what I am missing? Thank you for reading and commenting.

I think I agree with Jodah. I've always known who I am. My core values and beliefs have not changed all that much over the years since as far back as I can remember to childhood.

But I suppose there are other ways to interpret that phrase and in that sense, it's more a matter of figuring out what you really want in life in general or when making decisions.

I think more people than we realize actually do know themselves fairly well. It only takes stopping to think about things and learning from experiences. Maybe people don't do that quite as often when younger, but maturity tends to cause people to really get to know themselves better.

Shanmarie Crime and illegal activities clutter many peoples minds.I try to keep my mind free of anything bad thank you for reading. I let the light shine in.

Shanmarie I think people should be taught more team spirit. If you read the paper , see the t.v. or see the news they like to pump up the superstar, it's all about me attitude. In many competitions it is me against you. Master Chef, Hell's Kitchen and other reality t.v. Programs. If you catch the Presidential race and sports. At least that is how it feels. I think ithey are sending bad messages to kids. Do whatever it takes to win.Promoting winner take all. I think there are better ways. Thank you for reading and sharing.

Oh DREAM ON, it never crossed my mind wanting to be someone or something other than I am. This is my designation to fulfill, doing my best what I am doing, accepting challenges and changess succesfully. I always believed (still do) that the One who send me to this earth, would lead me ( He does) , teach and instruct me (still does) to my amazement that everithing I do, do successfully and prosperously. ( a divine revealed truth, not approprite to mention here.)

Hope you had a wonderful weekend. I always like to take care of things on my own. I feel like I can depend on myself more than anyone else except for my hubby.

Gypsy Rose Lee I find certain times my best isn't good enough. It puts me in a head spin and I battle myself and my own feelings. Thank you for sharing.

Michael-Milec We are always growing and learning. Always changing to the person we are meant to become. Thank you.

" Always changing " is very timely expression, known to me for long decades now in a higher sphere. The thought isn't leaving me, so by your permission let me type the quote for the sake of inner peace "But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the spirit of the Lord." Whatever it means, confirms only that our true identity is constantly changing - in your words ," to the person we are meant to become." Thank you .

Michael -Milec I cherish all your views and thoughts. I will always be like a new born baby learning, discovering, loving life and the people I meet. When I go to sleep at night I go to bed never knowing if I will wake up. Blessed is the world that I love in and the people I Share my life with.Things that bother me are different than most people. I think about the poor, sad , unfortunate, sick the dying. I constantly ask why ? Then I beat myself up and try to figure out how to put an end to it. I am left with answers that only lead to bigger questions. It's God's Devine plan and maybe it's not up to us to know or understand why. It still doesn't make it any easier when I live a healthy, loving life and others suffer. Everything else during my day is like dust in my car. Should my car be cleaned ? Yes. Will I get to it ? Yes. Today or maybe tomorrow or next week. Will people care? No. Will it make a difference in my life? It will make me feel better. Will it affect the operation of the car. No. Life will go on. I can clean the car or never clean the car and thos day will pass and the next one will rise. Are there thousands of people everywhere cleaning there cars at this very moment ? Yes. Are there thousands more not cleaning their cars ? Yes. Then I focus on my work and my day to day chores. Paying my bills. Creating new joy through words. This is so unlike the material world we live. I focus on more spiritual and love. Thank you for reading and sharing. I look forward to anything you wish to share on line or feel free to e-mail me day or night.

I should change the title to Who Do I Really Want To Be ? Since it is more about my own personal struggle and I don't know what other people want or need in life. I use we often thinking we all our connected and so close that maybe there was a chance you are facing the same problems I do. There is way of knowing unless people tell me. Do to the lack of response on this hub I guess I am in my own little world and feel different. Think different and through words that change my life I express my search for answers and my short comings , mistakes and problems. Part of life but they will never be who I am or make me into a bad person. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. May you find the pot of gold under the rainbow and share it with the world.

No fears. You come over as quite sincere, and again you realise your own personal struggle. Grace is with you, and I commend you highly. Be proud of yourself and do not expect anything from others. Much Love.

Manatita44 I know how difficult it can be doing things alone. When we work together for the same goals how easy and rewarding it can be. Both helping each other in times of struggle. Then celebrating when all goes well. I can't imagine most people don't want to be part of it. Thank you so much for sharing. Have a fabulous day.
