Who You Are
Who you are, the person people will come to know and like or dislike, is born in the early morning hours or in the bed just before you go to sleep. On the weekends when the family is gone and you are all alone.
Who you are is the person you are in your spare time. What you do when you don’t have to do anything.
Are you making the yard look better?
Are you putting up a building?
Learning how to cook?
Tearing down a car engine?
Writing a story over and again?
The ones of us who make themselves known, the ones who make a difference, are the ones who are working behind the scenes, out of the glare of the camera to make themselves better. Whether it’s a carpenter learning to cut the perfect angle, an engineer learning to design the perfect tool for the carpenter, the surgeon learning the new procedure or the writer, the singer, the football player or the boxer. The list goes on.
Or whether it’s the loser, the druggie, the world’s biggest failure, there is one thing that stands out…
You are who you are when no one is looking.
Not a judgment by any means as I am far from perfect. Just an observation.
What do you think? I need to hear it!
