This is Fruitycake The Raccoon. There are many persons I am still getting to know in my new life. You could say that I don’t know many others. And because we move around a lot, in fact, all of the time, it seems like there is a never ending array of possible friends.
But one friend that I know well is myself. I’ve been with me for as long as I can remember.
I was with me when I was on the street. I was with me at the shelter. I was with me even when I was a puppy and when I was adopted. It doesn’t matter to me that I have changed locations. Because I know me. I know me very well. I know that I am happy.
What about Brickle? Brickle says he knows himself very well too. He’s had over 13 years to get to know himself. He tells me that there are days he is more tired. There are days when he needs more rest. But there are days when he has lots of energy. When he feels like a million bucks.
And he says that no matter where he goes, he knows who he is. He says it is the persons that don’t have this figured out.
Yesterday, I heard Girl Person say she was feeling off and not like herself. But to me, I wondered if she really even knew herself. If she hasn’t figured out what makes her happy yet, how does she know what she is really supposed to feel like? If she doesn’t know what makes her feel her best, does she really know herself and her potential?
Are you like that too? Have you always been so focused on what you don’t like and your problems and your faults and that is all you see? Can you get to know YOU? The real you? Do you know what makes you happy? If not, it’s time to find out. Before it’s too late.
I know me. I know who I can be. I know who I was. So when I’m not feeling like me, it’s time to remove what’s standing in my way. Can you do that too?
