The Person You Are Is Better Than The Ghost You Were






















If the type of person you wish existed doesn't, then that is who you must become.

THIS is the secret I discovered three years ago. I've been trying to explain it to people ever since. Thank you for putting it more beautifully and simply than I ever could :) It makes me so, so happy that somebody else gets this.

And What if the God you believed in never existed?

God exists. Look around you

It is taking me a long time to be the person I want to be.
Anyways giving up was not that I ever wanted, so I'll keep trying.

there are far too many ghosts in the world.

who is then who to become?

If you are struggling to become the person you planned on becoming, it might be that your view of that person is too perfect.

We all have flaws. Sometimes you can change them or improve them.

But some you just need to accept and laugh about.

I just wanted to say thank you for writing. I know awhile back you questioned whether you would go on with the blog and I am so glad that you did. your passages put so much that I am feeling into words and make the bad days bearable as well as being truly inspirational.
Thank you for being.

To look back - all we have are blurry reflections of who we thought we were then.

To look at now - everything is in motion. The person reflected in the mirror always moves out of frame.

Our futures... who we will be... are each and every one filled with infinite possibilities. You can, and will, become the person you wish to have in your life.

just like saying.. "if you want to do something right, you've got to do it yourself."

I wish it's as easy as it sounds. I want to be that person, but I don't know if I'm strong enough.

C said...

Surely. I agree.

I became the person I wished I was, but people liked me more and I hated myself more.

In time, what we where, lends to who we are now. This defines us, It is what the task, requires. It is only when the task is compleated that we remember who we rally are, then the journey continues. It is the knowledge of the love that is in us all that makes the destination so atractive.
