“There is only one you for all time.
Fearlessly be yourself.” Anthony Rapp
Every person has a belief system by which they live their lives. That belief system is a lifetime of influences and experiences. A belief system is crucial because it is at the core of your self-worth. What you believe yourself to be; you will see in the mirror. When one begins to compromise their belief system to accommodate something or someone; it is a corrosion of self. That lack of self will show in the way you live your life and the choices you make.
I believe all of us at different periods in our life will hit the wall of analysis of what is our personal belief system. Often the death of someone close will bring home the reality that life does end. It can cause one to question how they are living their life. As mutual friends, all in our mid 50’s, in conversations we begin to embrace our changing bodies and thoughts — our belief systems adjust.
The gift of life is a constantly evolving and growth of self. As we gain more experiences and broader based influences, we can solidify our belief system. The empowerment of knowing who you are, what you believe in, the confidence in self will never fail you.
