Someone searched for this sentence, and came up with my blog. That’s all well and good, but I’ve been hard pressed to get this sentence out of my mind since I read it on my dashboard:
“I want to be the person I was when I wanted to be the person i am now”
Wow. Talk about deep. May sound strange, but I want to talk to this person. Why would you want to be back where you were, before you got here? Would you make another choice? Was it a ‘fork in the road’ moment for you? I am so curious now.
Thoughts and sentences like this really get my brain wheels a-churning. Want to know a good one? Here’s a Buddhist proverb for you that has never left my brain:
“I am not the same person I was when I started this sentence”
Wow. love it. To the person who longs to be back to who you were, try to enjoy the experience of each moment. I feel like every day I live a whole life time of experiences and moments. The worst thing I could do to myself, and those around me, would be to wish those away. Who knows how much those simple things give others joy? How can I judge how others experience me, even though my own feelings about my own experience might not be ideal at this time?
See, I told you. Wheels a-churnin.
