I don’t do a whole lot with facebook. I have it mainly to keep up with my children in Texas. I also keep in touch with other relatives lives through it. I do not condone having important events announced first that way…such as engagements, weddings but, I get over it. I use it to promote my photography but not half as much as I shouId. One of those goals for this year. I do browse through it quickly sometimes just to see some of the funny cartoons and inspirational messages that might pop up now and then. So I saw this one and thought it was an interesting rather deep thought.
First, my daily mantra to keep things going….
I am a writer and a photographer.
My answer to that ponderous question definitely would change on a daily, or maybe just weekly basis. Sometimes daily. Some weeks I love myself extremely. I believe most people like me when they meet me. They don’t see the inside very much unless they are around me for awhile as I tend to keep things cooped up inside, letting them out on weekends when I sit at home, crying in front of some silly movie on the television.
I tend to let myself get lost in what everyone else wants me to be when it comes to having some relationship thing going on. New years start and I try to gather my strength again to make ‘me’ better. To find ‘me’ again. Then that desire for Prince Charming starts again. I do need to realize…that my Prince Charming looks over me every day and I need to love myself deeply, every day.
Yes….me…I love me when I meet me. It’s that me that some others want me to be that I don’t like…because..it isn’t me. That person…is …boring and stressed..and lost.
Me…I…am a simplistic, nature loving, giving person. Yes, sometimes too giving but isn’t that the nature of being a woman, a mother? I have been called a very patient person many times in my life. I do find that I am losing that a bit . Yet, when I think about it, it’s more so when I’m lost. I get frustrated with everything. I’m not happy.
I’ve often been told that I have a very soothing personality that balances everyone out. Calming. (pretty sure they haven’t seen me blow up. But then most people don’t. I hold it in. Way too long and then one day, I break down. I give up. I make up my mind that things will change for me (maybe not a good change for the other person involved) but for me and there is no reasoning. Do I regret those decsions? Sometime down the road maybe but I can only think of one of those decisions that I’ve made that I still have regrets for today and that was to move too far away from my children.
I love life. Nature. Sunsets. The beauty of everything around that we have been blessed with. I love to laugh and love to make other people laugh. I love to garden. I love to help other people. I am a customer service rep (my secondary job – smiling) and I love dealing with the people to insure their ordering needs are met. I love beng a person people can go to for things. I love doing little surprising things for people. Personal things that touch their heart and soul. I guess..that is what I also expect from them in return.
So…the answer today…the answer this week (since I’ve been really good with some of my new year goals and aspirations) is, yes…I’ve met me – ME – this week and I like me.
Hello, Me. It’s good to have you back in my life. I hope you will stay for a while because you are one awesome inspiration!!!
