Who Are You?

I feel like I don't even know you anymore.

It's ok to become the person you've always desired to be. 

You’ve changed..

Words that once would have rocked me to the core.

I hear this a lot lately.

Some say it’s good. Some say it’s bad. Some say it’s neither good nor bad it’s just extreme.

I’m an extreme person.

I’m an intense person.

The concept of changing has at times scared the shit out of me.

Losing the person that I am becoming someone that I didn’t want to become.

Since being told that I’ve changed so much I did some meditation (I do this daily now and sometimes twice a day) and reflected on my journey over the last 12 months.

What I discovered was nothing short of breathtaking.

Looking over old photos which I rarely do and watching old videos I saw myself.

I saw the person that was trying to figure it out and find himself.

I saw someone who was trying to make sense of what his purpose was and how he could have the largest impact.

Positive impact.

I saw someone who wasn’t always happy and when you looked in his eyes something was missing.

He wasn’t quite there..

There was something that was still needing to be figured out or let out.

Thinking back over the last 12 months I’ve experienced a lot of pain. A lot of success. A lot of where am I going and what am I doing with my life.

In the last 3-4 months I’ve noticed a change in that person as well. I’ve noticed that I don’t go live as much or talk about the depth that I once did.

I notice that I talk more about business and less about life.

I’ve noticed that I’m more focused and driven in my life and message.

I also notice that I’m happier.

I’m growing.

I’m learning more and more about who I am and what I enjoy out of life.

How much I’ve enjoyed creating my dream life and watching it manifest before my very eyes as I write it in my journal.

I am changing at an alarming rate.

I’m day and night the man I was in December.

I’m still that same person but with the growth that I’ve experienced in the last 3-4 months that takes some people years to accept.

I’ve embraced this crazy journey called life, who I am and who I strive to become.

More change.

I’m becoming more and more comfortable with living in my own skin and being who I want to be.

That’s combination of who I was, who I am and who I’m to become.

I love growth.

I love happiness.

I love making impact.

I love the life I’ve created.

I love sharing that with others so that they can create their dream lives as well.

Amen to change.

I love it.
