Who I am

This isn't a post about WHO I am. This is a post about who I AM. Big difference!

Who I am is who I am. I don't want to describe that more today. What I want to do though is to tell you that that is the truth. Who I am is who I am. Take me or leave me.

It's amazing how many people say this but yet will lie to your face to hide who they really are. Believe me I have done it as well.

Am I proud of every second of my life. Are there decisions that I made that I have regrets about? Yep. It is all part of me though. The sum total of everything from the past is the present.

Now don't go looking for me to list the bad things I've done in my life. While I do think my life hasn't been that bad there are things that I don't like about me. I don't want to talk about those things here or bring them up in conversations. But when asked...

Obviously everyone could find things about themselves that aren't proud of. Some things we can rationalize away. Some things we can chalk up to foolish pride or just plain foolishness. Do don't need to bring these things up and tell the world our regrets. We do need to own them....

As I enter this new phase of my life I have promised myself to be a transparent as possible. I don't want to mislead anyone for any reason that I am something different than I am. So many people believe this but very few of us practice this.

Who I am is me. Will I change if I think that changing is going to make me a better person? Absolutely. Have I been beyond reproach in the past. Nope! Am I that way now? Nope. I see this and I am trying.

My wish is to, whether I'm talking to a friend, a potential date, my pastor or a client, tell the truth and have no regrets. Can you imagine if everybody did this...
