Do You Ever Miss Yourself?

Last week for some reason this line from the movie 300 got stuck in my head. “This is Sparta!”  If you know the events leading up to that line then you would remember that they, well King Leonidas, had to make a choice for his people.

And then while reading a blog last week, I came across this quote. “It is better to be hated for what you are than loved for what you’re not.” Unknown

What do these two things have in common? Knowing who you are, but I want to write about knowing who you were.

There are some, for whatever reason, that have moved away from the persons that they created themselves to be. People true to themselves. People who knew what they stood for. People who based their actions on their beliefs. People who did not run with the crowd or tried to fit in. They have changed and they are not liking it.

Are you comfortable with who you are?

“Destiny is no matter of chance. It is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to achieve.” William Jennings Bryan 🙂
