Who Are You?


“Knowing yourself is the best knowledge to have.”
~ Adella Gonzalez

Have you ever looked into the mirror and wondered who is that person looking back at you? Having never seen herself before, my little cat friend thought it was another cat she was seeing and took issue with her reflection by hissing and having a terrible time. Well, you might not go that far, but do you know who you are?

Plenty of people will tell you who you are, but it’s best not to listen to them. The quote by Adella Gonzalez says it all because once you get to know yourself there’s no stopping what you can do with your life.

When we’re trying to find ourselves, we feel so lost; an alien on this planet. Sometimes even like failures. We don’t know where we’re going and certainly not happy about where we’ve been. Everything about us just seems wrong. That’s a terrible way to live and a big waste of time.

You can’t find yourself in someone else. No one can complete you … only you have the power to do that. Sometimes people get married and have children to fill that void of not knowing who they are. And maybe for a while it works. But life is always in flux. People come in and out of your life. Divorce, death, and children grow up and away. One day you’ll find yourself alone with the stranger that is you.

Look into the mirror and accept what you see. The bad, the good, the ugly. All the parts that are you. Allow yourself to grow and learn, but be kind to yourself when you fail because fail you will. Some humans are smarter, funnier, and better looking than you, but so what? They are not you, so stop comparing yourself to them. Practice kindness and gratitude to bring out the deep beauty that lives inside your Spirit.

Embrace this person who is you for there is no other like you.

“The ultimate truth of who you are is not I am this or I am that, but I am.” ~ Eckhart Tolle

  1. It is a big journey to break that wall we have consciously built for our fears…but as we understand why it was built and break it down, we shine with a beauty like no other. And as you have said, it is that final acceptance of who we really are inside and realising that love and happiness we have always sought has been waiting patiently inside for us to see ❤
    Great share Michele, thank you…your discovery of self and the light and self love it creates is shining brightly kind lady ❤ 😀

    Same reaction I sometimes have when I look at myself in the mirror! JK :0)
    And, I used to have a cat that looked just like that, Michele. Have a great day.
