Have you ever thought of what defines you? Your nationality, your traditions, your religion?
We all travel the world, change the countries we live in, meet new people, keep some of our old friends, the true ones, and let go of others, the superficial ones, we make new friends… We come from one culture but often embrace a new one…only to become multicultural, rootless, wandering… in search of what defines us after everything we’ve seen, touched and experienced. So what defines you? …
I’ve decided on my word/phrase and some of you may know it: NEVER SETTLE! Because everything around me as well as within me is in a constant state of flux. I’ve been shaped by every country I’ve lived in, every city I’ve passed by and by people I’ve met. I’ve adapted to new realities (not always effortless), lost a part of my old self only to discover a new “me”. I am changing. And so is everybody else.
So if you can, learn to let go fast of what does not fit with you anymore, accept change even faster, never settle until you have embraced the impermanence to open up to your new day. And when you get the chance think about what defines you…and decide on your own word/phrase to guide your soul through this lifetime. 🙂
