I ran an experiment by asking over 300 people the question who are you ? As was my expectations everyone I asked began answering the question by telling me about their long lists of accomplishments; their job title, what they own, the type of car they drive, the house they live in, or who they know. Which brings me back to my question
WHO ARE YOU ?
The truth is many people simply do not know who they are, because their identity is tied to the position they hold in their job, the brand name clothes they wear, the car they drive,,or wear they live.But who are you after work? who will you be after the children are gone? who are you in your marriage, or who are you if your marriage ends in divorce? who are you when you take off your brand name clothes, or get out of your brand name luxury car?
Take a look in the mirror. Do you like what you see? Too many people do not like themselves so they are living a lie. Trying to be someone they are not.They become someone else by trying to look like a celebrity. They purchased items they cannot afford or take debt they cannot afford just to belong to a certain circle of people or to appear on social media with lavish lifestyles. Have you ever met someone who is one way in private but a complete different person in public or when they are around certain people.
Simple learn to appreciate yourself for who you are and what you have.If someone doesn't appreciate you for who you are then they do not deserve to be in your life. You can still work with or be around someone who wants all the contraptions or appear to have it and still not be affected by them. Let simplicityseeu. The choice is yours to remain who you are. Never let someone cause to pretend to be what you are not.
When you find out who you are then your job title or what you own does not describe you and quite frankly you do not need to flaunt it or even mention it.I have always said the people with real wealth never talk about it because it simple doesn't define them. Take a look in the mirror and see you. Say I am beautiful and I love you. Talk about the things you like and dislike.Talk about what makes you sad or happy. What are your dreams and hopes. Talk about places you want to go. What are the good things about you and what are the bad things as we all are not perfect.
These are the things that make you who you are. Not material things.The lost of material things or if you gain fame or win the lotto it will not change you because you know who you are. Each day look in the mirror and say pointing to yourself. I (say your name) am simply marvellous and am very fine. Don't just say it believe it. Each day say this affirmation until you feel confident. Live life from within. When you know who you are you do not need pretend to be someone you are not.
Live simple and let let simplicityseeu where you are and as you are. I would love to hear from you. Until next time live simple, be simple.

I believe in living life in a simple yet fulfilling stratosphere. Simple doesn't mean denying yourself of all the great things that life has to offer. Life was meant to be lived on your own terms and not on someone else's. It is about you.
