Finding your comfort zone

 

I’ve done a lot of stupid things in my life.  Some might be seen as extremely embarrassing.  But I don’t really regret any of them.  My 45 years of life experiences – good and bad, embarrassing or not, have all combined to make me the person I am today.

I don’t dislike who I am today.  I am finally at a point in my life that I like myself.  Every mistake I made, every good thing I did. Every life I saved or lost – all of it has added up to creating “me”.

So I am what I am.  And I am comfortable with me, it, whatever.

I don’t have a deep desire to prove anything to anyone anymore.  I don’t feel compelled to embellish, because I just don’t think I need to.  I am what I am. As Judge Judy would put it, “I am fully cooked”.

And I like the way I came out – I am not proud of everything I have done in my life, but overall I have more pride than embarrassment, and that’s probably more than I could have hoped for.

In spite of my recklessness, my youthful ignorance and my determination to screw my life up, I ended up a parent of two wonderful kids, and I’ve done well by them.  Not perfect, but ok.  And that’s good enough for me.

There are of course a lot of little things I would do different if I could, but in the end they wouldn’t have mattered.  I would still be me.

Hopefully you being you is as comfortable to you as me being me is to me today.

Like yourself.  Love others.  I don’t think you can’t reach your true potential until you can do these two things.
