We have all been given a name and we’re identified by that name. We make sense of things by identifying it and by attaching a name to it. A person’s name is the greatest connection to their own identity. How do you identify in this time or how do you prefer to identify to life?
I’ve just finished reading a fictional novel that is a gripping, thrilling, touching story and a beautifully written account of modern life. I also read the book of daily wisdom notes that helps me navigate stress. It helps me absorb and present empowering and practical tools for tending my life. Both the novel and the daily dairy notes are written by two different authors and yet, both great authors with totally different styles in writing. The daily dairy notes were written specifically to motivate and uplift a person psychologically. The fictional novel on the other hand, is a story written bringing attention to heart-rending psychological emotions of human life. The novel highlighted through the author’s imagination how joy and sorrow exist at the same time. The daily notes give inspiration for people who want to learn how to lead empowered lives and savour the joy of being alive. Both books illustrate how important it is to take control of our lives, to find our identity and to be your true authentic self.
As I am living life, I know that not every moment is an uplifting one, I however know, that I have to constantly seek and find those pivotal moments in life. Now is the time to be our authentic self and live up to your name. Be true to yourself through your words and actions. Don’t wait for tomorrow, be YOU today!
What’s in a name…I say
What’s in a name I asked
What do we call this fear
This fear that’s taken over our world
This fear that lives inside of us
Give it a name, I dare say
What do you choose to feel
Does it make you feel less afraid
Because you can call it by name
Our world will never be the same
We live in fear for our health
We live in fear for our future
We fear the unknown
I choose to name all of this
Yet I also choose to live…
