Me, Myself and I

i am

I am not the same me I was. I never will be. Over the years, each individual me has morphed into the next, and there is no way of knowing how many “me’s” there are left to be experienced. There was the child me, the teenage me, the single me, the married me, the professional me, the overweight me, the author me, and on and on. It’s as though each me had its own lifetime, yet all of them make up the life of the me that I am today.

The secret is in not looking back to the previous me’s, not to compare, criticize, or ruing the actions of the previous me’s. The secret is to understand that each individual me is an important contributor. Each me brings forth invaluable, previously unlived experiences, views, life lessons, sights, sounds, skills, memories and emotions. Though I wish I could have bypassed some of the experiences, each have helped me to be who I am today.
