If You Are Not Who You Once Were, Who Are You And More Importantly, Who Do You Want To Be?

Who you are is not who you were. Whatever has happened in the past is in the past.

Today is your chance to not only be who you are, but also who you want to be.

So, if you could give yourself the permission to be who you want to be, who would that person be?

This is the final day of my daily posting in June. Firstly, I’d like to thank everybody who follows me via email, Wordpress or Twitter (@awayfromnoise) and for all the comments and discussions over the past month. It’s been fun and it’s also hugely appreciated. The response to the blog has been fantastic and it’s incredibly encouraging to get such positive feedback from people all over the world since I only started this blog in October.

Although posting daily has been both a challenging and enjoyable experience, I need to make things more manageable, so from now on I will be posting twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays, though there may be additional posts from time to time. Future posts will continue to be a mix of thoughts on life, music and whatever comes to mind to inspire as many people as possible to live a life of positive simplicity.

So, thanks again…I’m off to have a walk in the sunshine now. It looks like a beautiful day outside!

  1. I’m looking forward to the course your blog will take on after Blogging 101. I really like the topic of this post because it’s something I often think about. In Switzerland (maybe also in other countries), it’s kind of a trend to tell people you like that they shouldn’t change because they like you the way you are (they would write that on birthday cards, for example). I haven’t ever written this to anyone and it has always made me feel awkward when someone else has written it to me. When I look back at my 14 year old me, I’m incredibly grateful that I DIDN’T listen to those people and changed anyway. I believe that change is a good thing, as long as you change for the better. And that’s what I hope will happen with increasing life experience!
    All the best to you and your blog 🙂


    1. Hi. Thanks for your feedback. I would be so disappointed if I were the same person I was in my teens or twenties. I agree that fundamentally we have the same personality and perhaps these evolve over childhood, however I believe we very much have the power to evolve beyond that and that each day is another opportunity to do just that. If we want to and allow it to happen. I believe change can be goo too. Thanks for your good wishes. See you in the blogosphere!

      1. That’s very well put! I’m sure many basic personality traits are shaped during childhood, but just as much as I believe that ‘good’ people can still change and evolve for the better over time, I also believe that humans are all fundamentally good and that they can better themselves…
