Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


You - Up Close and Personal

I think you can tell when you are fully yourself, and it is probably at that point you are completely contented, or completely devastated at what you see within.

I am traveling.

I have not yet shed the ropes that others have tied me up with, or will tie me up with as I'm traveling. I'm too young to free myself fully, but I'm getting there and when I get there I know I'll be beautiful in my glorious element of the person God made.

I'll be Colette.

Who are you?
Are you there yet?

  1. Great post, Colette, and food for thought. I definitely still sorting out who I am. I know I'm not there yet. But I am slowly discovering things that bring me happiness and push me towards the person I am to become. It's a process that seems long at times, but necessary, no?

  2. I agree with Kim, this is definitely a post that makes you think! I take pride in knowing who I am and having complete confidence in that fact. One of the many things my illness helped me understand at an early age.

    I'm still traveling on my journey, so I don't think I'll ever be QUITE 'there yet,' however I'm enjoying the getting-there part :)

  3. Getting there, with each decade :)

    Sometimes I feel left out of the crowd, and maybe sometimes it hurts, but I like that I choose what I want to do and not just get dragged along, you know.

    You are so right.
    It does take a long time sometimes.
    When I was young I didn't know I'd grow up 'inside'
    Now I wish my children will know this sooner...but life is life eh.

    But we are getting there with God's help.

  6. I'm still traveling too. Not there yet...
