New beginnings: one’s true self

It can be frightening to start something new… even when it’s something you’ve always wanted to do.  Fear of the unknown is the one of the most difficult things we ever have to overcome.  But if we want to move forward in life, to become the person we are meant to be, we are required to make leaps of faith.

I’ve written in various other spaces, but nothing has fit, quite yet.  This is my new beginning.  I’m going to try, at last, to write honestly and openly.  And I’m offering my willing ear to anyone who also wants a new beginning, but isn’t quite sure where to start.  So, if anyone out there knows they are meant to do something, but hasn’t yet begun, or isn’t yet sure what it is they are meant to do, please email me and let’s talk it through, or comment on this page.

In Hermann Hesse’s Demian, he writes: “I wanted only to try to live in accord with the promptings which came from my true self.  Why was that so very difficult?”  Maybe it doesn’t have to be so very difficult if we don’t try to do it alone…

  3. Good stuff Meg, but here is a question for you. What if in trying to live in accordance with one’s true self one discovers (as in my own case) that one is an asshole?
