    I would choose to be centered within myself, instead of merely self-centered.

    This day I would choose to be one of the “helpers” that someone would look for in their day. I choose to be the daughter of Dave and Gladys, determined, honest, ethical, on time, thinking ahead. When people say “I choose to be me” just exactly who is that? what part of you is it? How do we define ourselves? we all have perceptions of who we think we are but when others look at us- who do they see? What do they feel from us?

    I choose to be the person that God created me to be. To set aside my own desires and care for others first

    This question is a useful reminder that I have created many stories of myself all believable within each story. In more recent years there’s been a shedding of these, a dropping away. It’s not that I choose to be anything it’s just that the stories don’t spin as much although they do still spin. That’s not something I can force, a deliberate choosing; it is, rather, an emergence.

    The most kind I can be; clear minded also; giving what I am able to; humble and grateful in His light and love. All work in progress. Have a lovely day you all out there.

    My resilience class talks about how our identity affects our resilience – or lack of resilience. How negative stereotypes hurt our resilience, for example. One of the students recommended ‘Whistling Vivaldi’ and I’ve just downloaded the sample from Amazon Kindle. I’m working on losing my needy childlike identity.

    If all I want is to see Who I really, really am, nothing can stop me from doing so this very moment. But if my plan is to use that blessed vision to buy baskets full of nice feelings or any other goodies, I might as well abandon the very idea of Self-enquiry. I won’t be abandoning my inquiry.

    A kind of melancholy
    I choose to let it enter my soul. Now that’s the way . I offer my vulnerability at the foot of the Cross, as some of you answered after a past question. It could be worse, as Don Jones said Tuesday and as Debra said, I choose to let faith do its job.

      Living through doubt and regularly kicking the sh*t out of myself has no place in a practice of radical soul-saving love. Thirty-six years of alcoholic self-abuse ends today.

    I am nearing the end of my 7 th decade.. I choose not to congeal but enjoy learning, questioning and appreciating what I have and can have. I choose to be surprised everyday by the beauty that surrounds me in my faith, people, and nature.

    Despite my advancing (advanced?!) years, I choose to keep the flame of youth alive in me… adventurous, stylish, striving for justice for all and still a bit rebellious.

    I love what Clara Barton, Civil War nurse, activist and founder of the American Red Cross said: “It irritates me to be told how things have always been done. I defy the tyranny of precedent. I cannot afford the luxury of a closed mind.”💪

    I choose to be more centered than reactive today. I will do what I can for those in need (I run my local soup kitchen tonight) but I will not let my empathy overwhelm me and leave me feeling helpless and depressed for these beautiful souls. I’m doing what I can, I welcome everyone with love and respect and I’ll stay open for possibilities where I can make more of difference than just a full belly.

    I am hung up on this authenticity thing. So I declare only those identities that are born up by the evidence. Loyal, disciplined, reverent of all life, keeper of my word, generous, forgiving and agreeable. Rower, writer and Uber driver.

    I choose to accept me for who I am. I choose to accept all my life lessons as being that. I choose to be in the now, to be compassionate to myself and others, to understand what others are going through and why they act a certain way. I choose to welcome this day as with everyday as a new beginning, to be thankful, appreciative of what and who I have.

    I constantly long for my husband. My soul knows that we are connected forever; his love is always, always with me. But the earthly desire is so great. An arm around me, his sweet smile ….. and so much more. Today I’m going to put fresh flowers on his grave. I know he’s not there, he’s in my heart now, but still I enjoy talking to him at the grave. And there I also tell him about our gratefulness family, what you all mean to me.💞

      Christine ~~~ how deeply I feel for you having experienced the loss of my husband. It is so understandable to long for their hug in an earthly way. Glad you find connection, his presence and love at his gravesite with the blessing of the flowers 💐 you share.

        Thank you so much Kevin. These are for you 🌸🌹🌺🌻🌼🌷 with my prayers for good health. I do wish with my heart the best for you. I realise that I had a language problem. Sometimes english is difficult. I read the question wrong. I understood “Who do you want to be with” I have no answer for the real question.

          Morning, Christine, I of course do not know what your native language is, but from where I am, your English is just fine and your interpretation of yesterday’s question was spot on also. One of the beauties of this site is all the many different ways there are to “read” and interpret any particular Daily Question.

        Today I choose to be a soldier of Christ. I will look for opportunities to share his love, Mercy and to be charitable. I will Willingly accept what where God has placed me this time in my life. This is not where I expected to be at this time of my life but I am always reminded I still have much to be grateful for.
