To Thine Own Heart Be True

It was a famous line by William Shakespeare and it means absolutely nothing, unless you take it into your mind and heart. If you choose to live true to your own self, you will stand alone much of the time. You simply don’t conform to the beliefs of others to please them. You truly think things out, balance logic with emotions, listen to your heart and make your actions speak your heart loud and clear.

It seems odd to me how many people are trying to “fix” who they truly are.  It takes all kinds of people to make a world. The experience would not teach us anything if we were all alike and all tried to have the same interests, talents and beliefs.  I have to wonder if each of us only has one thing to learn on this earth and in this body and we spend most of our lives running away from that one thing.

A very close friend once asked me if I ever even once changed my mind. I laughed so long and hard that tears were running down my face. “I change my mind all the time, that is the only way you learn, grow, progress and fall back. What fun would it be to live on this little snow globe called earth, if someone wasn’t shaking things up all the time?” 

“But you seem so certain and sure of yourself.”

“In the moment I am sure it could look that way. What you see are authentic moments in time. And as the seconds tick away and we learn something new, meet someone interesting, start to question what we know and that is what we call “living”. 

I try to live true to myself and lead with my heart and follow with logic. (Funny, I just learned that about myself right now! Not during the conversation, but when I was writing about the conversation.)

Makes me wonder and perhaps you could leave a comment with your opinion, Do you believe I write for myself or for others?
