Who are you becoming?

Who are you becoming? ~ Crystal Gornto | HeartStories

Have you thought much lately about who you are becoming?

Outside of career goals or general life titles, do you have a plan for becoming the kind of person you want to be?

While we were on our little trip, we found the most interesting beaches.  We were on the tip of the peninsula of an island so there was sand on either side.   They’ve tried to build the road further, but it gets washed out by the ocean every time.  So what’s left is sand that stretches out, covered in shallow water for miles.

You could keep walking for a very long time before you realize just how far you’ve gone.

Life is that way.  

You may not notice it, in the busyness of your life, but you’re heading somewhere.  One small step at a time.  You’re forging a path, leaving a trail for those who come behind.

Is it a destination worth traveling to?

Is it leading where you want to go?

Are you becoming more loving and generous or more self focused and angry?

Every day you’re becoming more of something.

Think about the path you’re on.  In fact, just think about yesterday.  If yesterday repeated itself over and over for the next year, who would you become?  I know, I know, yesterday was unique because of the election, a doctor’s appointment, a big meeting…. I know.  But really, how different was it?  The way you acted, the things you said, it was probably all pretty close to normal.

It’s one thing to be wandering on a beach, not worried about where you’re headed.  But it’s entirely different to work hard and get through the daily grind of your life only to find out you became someone you never planned to be.

The path you’re on will take you somewhere.  

Is it where you want to go?

If not, it’s time to do something different.

And it’s up to you.
