Thanks for popping in. How are you? How are you coping? Good days and growing days.
The daily Doodle sessions are creating a shift in me, if I may say so. Never having been a confident person, I usually tend to morph into various personalities, depending on who I am with. Even my dialect and choice of words will change if you’re posh and don’t swear. But now I am alone in the room above the garage, day after day after day. And there is nobody to bounce off, to reflect myself off there – except 500 people!
I am discovering who I am. I’m spending so much time in my own company and in my own head, that I am also getting quite used to me.
At 61, I think it’s time to be myself. As Oscar Wilde said:
Be Yourself. Everyone else is already taken.
There are so many of us, but we’re all different. There are millions – nay billions – of us, but no two people are identical. Not even identical twins.
And I guess, in the light of this global pandemic, I am feeling a sense of importance around becoming who I really am. Or should I say, about becoming comfortable with who I am?
My job as I see it, but it always has been, is to stay upbeat and keep smiling, not to inflict my stuff on you. That rule mostly stops me from going to the back of the cave, and it certainly mostly stops me from taking anybody back there with me! You fake it to make it, you keep your filter in, and you smile.
But now there is a need rising up in me to be true to myself. I have a beautiful picture of Grace somewhere, with words by Dr Seuss. Let me find it….
Mmm. So on that note, I shall admit that I am worn out and fit to drop today. Ready to stop.
Signing off for the day.
Stay safe. Love and Hugs,
