What Is Life About? #musings #deepthoughts

I love quotes.  When I’m in a bookstore, I like to let my eyes wander over the quotable cards, a collection of greeting cards, journals, magnets with famous quotes printed in bold fonts.  When I doodle, I writes quotes rather than drawing pictures.

One quote that I am drawn to over and over again is “Life is not about finding yourself; life is about creating yourself.”  (I think the545c39350c49bd495ba5beca9e7d3d8d author is unknown.)

Is this true?

For me, this is a very profound struggle that goes on inside of me frequently.  Is life about me accepting who I am and loving myself as is?  Or is life about me making choices so that I can become who I want to be – creating the best version of my self?

Maybe, a little of both?

This is a huge question mark for me, and, as with most things in life, I think the answer is probably somewhere in the middle.  I need to accept myself for who I am, and I need to make choices about the kind of girl I want to be.  “The different between who you are and who you want to be is what you do” – I found this quote on marcandangel.com, a website I just discovered today.  Be who you are and be who you want to be – it’s all about balance.
