“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.” ~ Lao Tzu
I have been so consumed by my job lately that I have begun to redefine myself by my career and not by the person who is performing that job. I give up small parts of myself to become a larger piece of the work puzzle and, although I thoroughly enjoy my job and the people I interact with on a daily basis, I lose sight of the potential success of my personal goals.
I saw this quote and the cogs in the wheels of my creativity began to align and click into perfect place. By allowing myself to become what I might be, I give myself permission to become all of the things I wish for myself. Work is a means to pay the bills but work will never be the summit of the mountain of my possibility.
Each day I write this blog, each day I allow the words to flow from my brain, is a day I step closer to what I might be. There is a part of me still lurking in the shadows. There is a creative mind waiting for the moment that reality does not quell its desire. When I finally am able to truly let go of what I am, that creative mind will become what it should be.
