Day 32, August 23, 2016 @7:57 pm
I am thinking of who I am today. The truth is I am just discovering the who that is under my exterior. I am like the melancholic stranger in Acker Bilk’s Stranger on the Shore watching the tide go out. I’m the more melancholy realizing that all I have been is the reflection of what people think/want/expect me to be. I’m none of that which is written about boys and money in the high school year book. I’m much more than I have ever shown – even to myself.
This coming year is going to be an exciting one. I’m going to peel back the layers, like an onion as they say. I will get to know myself. I have put behind me the uncertain child, the confused teenager, the caretaker and pleaser of others. I will grow up and live my life. I have now put behind me the years of shift work. I have caught up on my sleep. I have come back into myself. No more excuses. Do you have any?
