41 Days to Go: Turning 50! 50 GlowTips I’m sharing to Spread the Glow!
41 Days to go until I turn 50! So I’ve decided to share 50 GlowTips to Get Your Glow ON — one per day, in no particular order of importance and just as they come to me…
And here’s #GlowTip 10) You are not your circumstances!
And you are not the roles that you play.
It doesn’t matter who you were, where you’ve come from, what you’ve done, or what you’re doing now — your circumstances and roles don’t define who you are.
Circumstances and the roles we play can change in an instant — and then who are we? And my answer to that is: I am still ME!
When we start identifying ourselves with where we are and what we do — we limit ourselves and give up our power to choose. And often this can keep us stuck in Victimville.
I’ve been rich, I’ve been poor, I’ve been in a long-term relationship, I’ve been single, I’ve been a partner in a successful business, I’ve been unemployed, I’ve been a stepmother, I’ve been a boss, I’ve been a freelancer, I’ve been a mentor, I’ve been overweight, I’ve been underweight, I’ve been a smoker, I’ve been unfit, I’ve been a student, I’ve been a teacher, I’ve been an expert, I’ve been a beginner, I’ve been…..so many things that do not define who I am!
I am whomever I choose to be right now!
And I’m not prepared to allow my circumstances to define me.
I’d rather create circumstances to reflect who I am!
Society loves to give us labels. But we don’t have to take those on as our identity. Who we are is so much more than our circumstances.
I choose to be abundantly healthy, wealthy, happy, loving and joyful — regardless of my circumstances; regardless of where I am and who I’m with.
So never mind the circumstances — here’s to being whomever we choose to be!
I choose to be ME!
