I grew up hearing “you are what you do.” And while I always believed that to an extent, it also makes me think: what about the not so good things I’ve done? Like the stuff I did out of ignorance or lower levels of awareness, when I didn’t know any better? The moments where I was such a judgmental bitch to myself and therefore to the people around me? The times I closed my heart to others out of fear? All the bad, the embarrassing, and the regrettable... am I that??
The answer from my higher guidance: Do you still want to be?
The best part of having self-awareness -the beauty of being able to look back - is in remembering that all that we’ve been before has gotten us to this moment now. And in this moment, we always have a new opportunity to know better, to do better, and in a sense, to be better. New days, new leaves, new turnings.
