In the years that I have experienced life there is one thing I know for sure. I am who I am.
Reflecting back to my childhood there was always a little quirkiness about me. Always a little different, doing my own thing. I look back and have a good chuckle at some of the things I used to do as a child. I used to show up at school with a bag of costumes and announce that I was putting on a performance that day. I’m amazed that not one of my teachers ever said NO. I guess they found me pretty amusing. In fact, when I was in grade six, I got a call to go to the office. You can imagine how nervous I was as my classmates all called out “ooooooooohhhhhh…oh oh…Adele, what did you do?” Only to find my kindergarten teacher from the previous city we lived in had come to visit me!!!! She was so delighted to see me and asked if I was still as funny and putting on shows when I was in her class? I answered “YES” and she said “never stop being who you are Adele. You are such a delight”!
And so it continued. I guess I was just doing my own thing and bopping along living in my own world. I never gave a thought to try to fit in. Couldn’t be bothered. I loved to skate and would spend most of my time at the rink. I loved to read and sew and would spend most of my time being absorbed in the things that made me happy.
It sure has paid off. Cause my life has been my own creation all along. Sometimes I’m a dreamer, sometimes I’m the comedian, sometimes I’m the healer, the meditator , the creator, the intellect, the explorer, adventurer, dancer, friend, lover, Mom, Auntie. I am all these and so much more. So, I am who I am in the moment and it changes all the time. The thing is I have learned to love WHO I am in the present and go with it. Just loving my life and enjoying myself. Never taking myself too seriously. Laughing at myself and how completely crazy I can be. This Life is for Living. So…ease up. Relax and have fun. Be fine with who you are in the moment. And if you aren’t, change it! You have the ability to change your MIND at anytime. Try on something different. I can be classic one day and motorcycle chic the next. But I have learned to love all aspects of myself. The more I love all aspects the better my life is. So…be different or not!!! Who cares? Just be who you are.
