Who am I?

Who am I ? What do I want in life?

Have you ever asked yourself those questions?

I have and and at different times in my life I've had different answers too.

As a kid growing up I was never very ambitious and all that I wanted in life was to have a job,settle down and get married and have a family. By the age of 22 I had achieved that and was happy with who I was and what I had.

But over time things change,you change and you grow.After several years I decided that I needed to be my own boss and make my own rules and managed to do that for several years.You learn so much about yourself as a person like that.I learned that I get more satisfaction from being creative an artist almost...(I'm an electrician by trade) Thnigs like a good job that works first time and is visually pleasing to the eye and neat was more important to me than finishing a job quicklyand under budget.I also learned that I'm not cut out for the hard life of a businessperson and that I dont have the ruthless streak associated with it.

Also in the last year in my personal life I've come to realise that I never truly knew the person I really was and it has been a great eye opening experience for me. Maybe its something to do with growing older ,you look for more and more from life and things like being happy with who you are and where youre at mean a lot more to you.I've found it to be a wonderful and fulfilling experience.

To anybody who has never experienced that I'd say take time out and see where you are and what you want and compare it with what you wanted in life as you first set out on your own.It will show you who you are and the journey its taken to get there.

It can be a wonderful and enlightening experience and can change your life forever.

And Kudos mate, thanks for the feedback but as the Flower's away And I'm KJ ,life's greatest Glory remains in rising whenever we fall and is not a Manc ,well not for this week anyway. ;)

"We are the music-makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams;
-World-losers and world-forsakers,
on whom the pale moon gleams;
Yet we are the movers and shakers,
Of the world for ever, it seems."

-- Arthur O'Shaughnessy

There are good ships,
and there are wood ships,
The ships that sail the sea.
But the best ships,
are friendships,
And may they always be.
