“I’m not feeling like myself today.”
We have this sense that there is an “us”,
a true self,
just out of our reach.
We are right:
We all have a true and best self,
and if it’s out of our reach, we have put it there.
our habitual emotional responses
keep us from living what we know is true.
Still, there are
these moments and days,
when we get out of our heads
and into our hearts,
to act, speak, and love as our true self.
Living an Uncommon Life
is nurturing those bright spots,
to name, claim, and live
our true self
May you feel like your true self today.
