I was talking with my Dad a while back and he said something that really stuck with me. We were talking about something that someone very dear to me struggles with and how this person was broken saying this thing I struggle with is what and who I am, this defines me. My Dad had said to this person; “that is not the truest thing about you”.  It really made me think, what is the truest thing about me? What is true to the core of my being? The truest things about the person that we were talking about are that they are fiercely loyal, hardworking, driven and I could go on and on….  I guess the moral to my story is that what you believe to be the truest thing about yourself may not be what others see in you and even if you struggle in an area it doesn’t mean that is who you are.

I love you Dad.
