So, What Am I

I thought I was one thing,

And I wasn’t.

I thought I was something else,

And I wasn’t.

Maybe I should just be.

And stop thinking about it.

    I think we all have a vision of who we want to be and sometimes that vision doesn’t exactly match who we are.

    Just be yourself. You are pretty awesome just as you are.

  3. Being yourself is the best way to be. More comfortable and less stressful. 🙂

  4. LOL! I know exactly what you mean. Trouble is, if you stop thinking about it then we will stop getting all your wonderful posts. 🙂 🙂

  5. Probably not a bad idea, but I just wanted to let you know…you are actually a sea manatee. In fact, if find it very strange that you are able to write so many blogs considering you complete lack of appendages.

    Good idea Colleen! You are the one behind your thoughts. 🙂 xo

  7. […] Here’s some philosophy from The Chatter Blog  […]

    I’ve been having similar thoughts. I like the idea of just being. No pressure. 🙂

    A perfect solution to conundrum I think…and very Zen so I concur. Being is more fun than knowing anyway I think. And more difficult. 🙂

  10. Amen. I try to tell myself to stop thinking all the time!

    Best advice I’ve seen in a while. I need to take it!

    Oh, Colleen! I sometimes “over think” things, too. Hope you have a relaxing Labor Day weekend. 🙂

    • You and me both Robin.

      My weekend is going fabulously. I hope yours is too.

        Things are good up here, in Cleveland.
        Thanks for sharing your 7.5 mi. hike. 🙂 Second day taking Mom out in area in wheelchair. Yesterday, we watched movie, walking through myriad of 3 buildings to her apt. Today, walked the perimeter of the buildings, stopped watching ducks, geese, sunset and my brother brought her little dog, Nicki. Mom held onto her pup and showed her off when we took her back to rehabilitation end of building.
        Came home to find 7 cute photos of Hendrix in my inbox on cell phone from DIL. He has a “onesie” on, with bananas and monkeys and he is stretching, for example. Pretty outstanding weekend, Colleen.

        • It sounds like an outstanding weekend Robin. I’m glad your mom got ‘out’ and about. I hope the movie was good! And YAY that Nicki got to visit!!!!

          And to top it all off with Hendrix. Perfect. 🙂

  13. Oh Lord, you are singing my song. Sort of sweeps your feet out beneath you.

    Too much thinking….just be.

  15. Debra says:

    i think it’s impossible not to observe, but just don’t place too much meaning on the observation! We are all transitioning into a new picture of who we think we are anyway, so it’s best not to get too attached to our thoughts. 🙂

    • That is brilliant advise Debra. We are all transitioning. I need to remember that. Move through and on to what I want to do (and whether I am good at it or not, if I enjoy it). Thank you.

    I’m trying to figure out what thinking is?
