The Real Me

Do you ever have one of those moments where you look around and you're like, "This is not the real me!"

The real me goes to yoga every day, no excuses.

The real me lives in a house, not an apartment.

The real me never runs out of groceries.

The real me doesn't have any debt.

The real me always calls people on their birthdays, not the day after.

The real me goes to bed on time.

The real me takes an afternoon off work to go to a theme park!

I had this weird little revelation walking home from yoga today, that the real me is really there - I just need to let her out more often. This is how I quit smoking: I told myself I'm a non-smoker. Non-smokers don't smoke. Therefore, I don't smoke. So the real me is there, underneath the lazy me that wanted to stay home from yoga - but the real me went to yoga, and all the me's are happy about that tonight.

Who's your real me? How often do you let him or her out?


  1. You know I was just thinking about this earlier today. My friends had invited me out but I had already made plans "with myself" so I said no. I didn't want to let myself down. While I did want to go out with my friends I also had things I needed to do and had set aside time to do them. Plans I make with myself are just as important as I make with others. I wouldn't cancel on one friend to go out with another friend, why should I do that to myself? Am I making any sense at all?

  2. The real you isn't static. We are constantly changing. We do have morals and codes by which we live by. But our circumstances are ever changing and so will the choices you will make.
