I didn’t know I was looking for myself.
But by golly I was out chasing down life
And ran smack dab in to me
All about me.
It’s amazing what I didn’t know about me.
Until I discovered it.
Hahaha! I would say, “Isn’t that the truth!” But it would be like a broken record. Haha! We are out looking for the “meaning to life” thinking we are so intelligent to be looking for something so admirable. HA! Guess what we find instead?
🙂 Our little selves ambling about. 🙂

There is so much about myself that I still don’t fully understand or know. Going through new experiences often shows us sides of ourselves that we didn’t know existed.
Yes. Just last week I looked at a friend of mine and said “you know what? I react emotionally, not intellectually. I do not process before I react”. This was in regards to “work”. It was something I had been struggling with to explain to myself, and I tripped right over it. I know certain things about myself but don’t always know how to apply them to other ‘parts’ of my life. Amazing what we learn and put together….
🙂 I keep bumping right in to me.
Just when I feel I am trying to ‘get away’ from being me, I am me. This is a ‘twist’ on your thought, but I found this to be true over the Easter holiday. Smiles!
🙂 I am trying to embrace what it is I’m finding out about me. THAT is a process as well. It ain’t easy Robin! 😉 Bumping in to that kind of familiar person to realize – oh – maybe that is exactly what and who I am. Well then, okay, let’s make this work. Many smiles for both of us!
Oh no, not your too Colleen. I thought it was just me. I guess we all must be lost to a certain extent.
🙂 I didn’t really know I was though. 🙂 Until I started finding out things.
I’m almost afraid to ask what things.
Lets not worry about some things….. hahahahaha!
i have done the same – great poem, colleen.
Thank you Beth! 🙂
Yep, sometimes that happens to me and I’m just like “ouch! watch where you’re going!!”
Hahahahahahaha! I wish I could have drawn THAT! That would have been perfect! 🙂
Really! Ha, ha!
And what was it that you discovered?
Interesting Huck, one of the things, is how I respond. I’ve always been ‘quick’ to respond, and bothered by that. I’ve come to discover that’s not a bad thing. I just need to know how to make it work for me. 😉
whenever i read you, i must say it inspired me i don’t know why but i think life isn’t what you understand about yourself its about how you understand the others
Thank you Saurabh. I agree life is about understanding others, but in doing that , I learn so much more about myself. It’s a positive cycle for me. That is my hope any way. 🙂
that is everyone’s hope anyway who is full of life my best wishes with you chatter’s icon. 🙂
Thank you Saurabh 🙂
pleasure is mine 🙂
Those moments happen to me…as ever when least expected. 🙂
I find it interesting that the very simplest of understandings occur and I am gobsmacked as to why they didn’t occur to me before. 🙂 Hence, the moments I run right in to myself. 🙂
Awesome post. I’m still discovering me everyday… Have fun.
Having a blast! 😉 And it’s quite the journey of discovery isn’t it Shian?
😀 Thank you!
It keeps changing too, which makes it harder to find!
So I’m going to keep bumping in to me Nancy? 😉
You might bump; I feel like I stumble over myself more often than not!
🙂 I guess that means we’re both still looking and moving forward, or in some direction or other Nancy.
(By the way, I hope job wise it’s forward. My husband is doing substitute teaching and is actually loving it. Loves the diversity and challenge of it. I hope you are getting good news on your end.)
I have a little saying reserved for myself when I run into myself…..uhduh, har, har. I think we sometimes try to make things hard when they are truly simple.
Ha! 🙂 I like that saying. I may borrow it. 😀
It has to be said in a comically “stupid” voice. 😀
Oh I’ve mastered that ! 😉
What a joyful discovery, MBC!
Thankfully I didn’t find myself in a place of ill repute! 😉
Isn’t that the way it should go? That’s how you know you are on the right path?
🙂 I like your comment and want to say YES! If I was bumping in to beezlebub I would certainly be on the wrong path!
And if in your encounter with yourself you u realize you’re still smiling, that’s a great day!
Ha! Very good point. Better than running in to myself and turning around running, screaming in the other direction! 😉
