I will credit today’s pondering to a quotation that I ran across a couple of weeks ago, but first, let me toss out a few rhetorical questions . . . How true to ourselves are we, really? Do we go through life being what others want us to be as opposed to what we actually want to be? How many of us changed careers (or failed to explore a career) due to a parent’s insistance that we wouldn’t be able to make a living at that? How exhilerating is it to just “be yourself” and to do what you want to do? Sobering questions to say the least. And, questions that we should all ask ourselves from time to time to regain our focus in life (in my humble opinion).
The quotation . . .
“One of the greatest regrets in life is being what others would want you to be, rather than being yourself.” –Shannon L. Alder
Live happy! Be happy! Be yourself!
