Being Me…

and discovering that that is quite the roller coaster ride. Wanna come along?

The easiest thing in the world to be is you…

The easiest thing in the world to be is you. The most difficult thing to be is what other people want you to be. Don’t let them put you in that position.

Leo Buscaglia

This quote means so much to me. I have got to find a way to convey this to my daughter as she grows up. Of all the mistakes I’ve made in my life, the biggest one I regret and the one I hope that she avoids is trying to be what others expect. I spent years trying to make myself what others expected me to be and in the end, I wasn’t happy and neither were they.

It is early yet (she’s only 7 months old and my son is only 2 and a half) but I want them both to be what they want to be. I want them to have happy lives. I want them to be independent, self-sufficient, consciencious, thoughtful and loving. I want them to think for themselves. I want them to follow their dreams, not mine.
