Today’s quote of the day was from Sidney Poitier who said, “I am the me I choose to be.” While we all know that we should be who we want to be and be unapologetic in our pursuit of happiness, this quote stopped me in my tracks a bit. It got me to thinking about the many versions of ourselves that we have and how and why they come out when they do.
When it comes to our day to day personalities, they vary. Some days we are the cheery version of ourselves and other days we are melancholy and down. Whether you want to hear it or not, you chose to be that version of yourself in both situations.
We have the extraordinary power to choose how we act and respond to situations in our lives every day. We can choose to be happy or sad, but no matter what, that is who you are. You may not like that particular version of yourself, but at the end of the day, you are the you that you choose to be. So, choose wisely.
