Life is about evolving, changing, growing. We all change, a little bit, everyday. It’s part of being human and as scary as change may seem at times, it is at the end of the day good thing.
But in the mist of all this change how do you know who you are?
If everyday you change a little more, what is it that makes you you?
Growing up I was a quiet girl. I didn’t have many friends and I preferred spending my time alone with my thoughts than with other people. Nowadays I like the company of people, and I have plenty of friends to share my days with. But even though I am much more social now I still like my quiet times, specially when I need to think, and I can often be found sitting alone with my mind miles way.
Lots of other things changed for me over the years. I was a scientist now I’m an artist. But I still feel passionate about what I do and I still feel that same edge to do the best I possibly can.
I used to hate waking up early now I feel slow and sluggish all day if I don’t.
But no matter how much I’ve changed over the years I’m still the same girl.
I still get emotional over everything.
I still love animals of every kind, from dogs to cats and parrots and snakes.
I still have that strong minded girl in me that sat alone at lunch, only now I don’t sit alone and I actually speak my mind.
At the end we are who we are because of what drives us and even if that focus may change the will you have to follow it won’t. And you’ll always do it in your own unique way.
How have you changed over the years? And what in stays the same and keeps you true to yourself?
