Just Who Will You Be?

Life Is what happens when you are busy making plans!

Anyone who has faced an unexpected detour in their life, [accident, loss of a loved one, divorce, down sized from job, learning they are not able to give birth, lifestyle downsizing etc.] will often wonder "Who am I now"?

Early in my recovery, I was given the book  Just Who Will You Be? written by Maria Shriver. At the time, as a friend read it to me, I did not realize that this book would [almost two years later] be the "Wind" that would set my sails into an unknown future.

I have not thought about this book and yet something drew me to it as I looked at my bookshelf. When I picked it up - it open to the following prayer:

We have been telling people that this is the eleventh hour
Now we must go back and tell the people that this IS the Hour.
Here are the things that must be considered:

Where are you living?
What are you doing?
What are your relations?
Where is your water?

Know your garden.
It is time to speak your truth.

Just like Maria, I am asking myself  "If this is the hour how do I want to spend it?" "What do I want to do with it?"

Even more interesting is, I will be going away for a few days. Away from the stresses of rehab, day to day life and although I am not going alone [I'm  unable to travel completely on my own]; I am going with a dear friend who just wants to lay in the sun and relaxe. 

I truly belief that everthing in life, good or not so good, happens for a reason. So, I will be taking Maria's book with me - reading it on my own this time. While my friend is busy relaxing, I will be reading and trying to figure out just "Who I Will Be!"

If you are trying to figure out "where to now" or "who am I now", I highly recommend this book. Check your local book store.

Visit often over the next few weeks to see where I am at on my journey to creating me. Wishing everyone peace and courage!
