Discovering My Real Me

Miscellaneous

by David Giwerc

Why can’t I be perfect? Why can’t I be the best? Why can’t I be the center? Why can’t I be the richest? Why can’t I be revered? Why can’t I be the star? Why can’t I be …? …and when I paused, I realized:


I never wanted to be perfect, I just wanted to be better.

I never wanted to be the best, I just wanted to be acknowledged.

I never wanted to be the center, I just wanted to be a key part of the circle.

I never wanted to be the richest, I just wanted to create abundance to share.

I never wanted to be revered, I just wanted to be loved.

I never wanted to be the star everyone sought, I just wanted to deliver the light so others could find their path.

I just wanted to be me. The real me!

The me that felt good whenever I expressed the natural, creative, passionate inner stirrings of my heart. The me that walked or ran or jumped or danced without worrying about what others thought or how my efforts would turn out.

I began to pay attention to what I really wanted. Letting go of all the amazingly maddening, made up “less than” stories: The illusions that had, for so many, many years, masqueraded as my friends. Finally I could surrender to the mumbo jumbo ME. And awaken to the realization of a transformational truth.

I can always be who I want to be. I just have to give myself permission!
