Know You

Isn’t this great? Just something for you lovelies to think on this weekend.
Do we ever stop growing up?
I don’t know.
I do know . . .
I don’t ever want to stop growing. I’m still learning the “who I really am” bit. And right now I’m doing a lot of it. I should know me, right? I’ve been with me for 32 years now.
I know this . . .
It’s a journey finding the real you. Like cracking a code sometimes. I thought I knew myself and other times I surely have. But now I’m really just ready to be my very own self and all of the time.
Do you know who you really are?
You are unique & one of a kind.
There is no one else like you.
You have a purpose. A very specific one.
Other people need you & what you have to offer.
You are creative.
You are lovely.
You are You!
And I do know this is a good place to start!

    What a wonderful post! I did a post today that I'm not sure about but it spoke to me and I didn't get but 3 responses. I was just talking about something that I believe in and isn't that what being you is all about? I am still trying to figure out this blog world and wish I didn't care what others thought. It seems people really do just want to talk about fashion and design and a good recipe. I like all those things too, but I just wanted to keep it real.

    Sorry about going off, this just seemed a safe place to do that!

    Love this post. I'm always surprised at how much I change… constantly. But even if my mind changes or my style or whatever.. who I have been is a very deep part of who I am now.

    Interesting to learn that finding out who you are is kind of like building a house. We just keep on building.

    Thank you for this post! I'm 27 and still really don't know who I am. I'm still learning!

    LOVE the quote! So true.

    It is probably going to take a while to know myself. But I hope that I can keep on surprising myself and growing. Thanks!

    Emily, i love these thoughts! they are so real and true:) it's a journey finding and creating who we are and reminding ourselves that we are unique and have a special purpose. i try to relay this often to my nieces – girls in their teens. it seems to be the most difficult time to actually see that in ourselves. thanks for sharing. hope you are having a wonderful weekend!! xo

    Very nice post. I understand when you say you're still learning about who you are. I say just go with what feels right, what makes you happy, and as you go along, you'll understand you more and more. At least, that's what I'm doing :)

    p.s. I love E.E. Cummings!

    What an inspiring post. Every day I try to become more 'me' but sometimes it's difficult as you get caught up in what other people expect you to be. Thanks for the reminder xx

    Trina, I think I have come back and read this so many times – and I can't believe I have ever said – THANK YOU. I hear you, we should know, i've been with me for 31 years. It certainly isn't the me I thought I would be. But, i'm slowly but surely finding that it is ok where I am at, albeit different to most others around me. Thank you again lovely lady xx
