Thought of the Day...

A thought I've had a lot lately is:

"The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are." -Joseph Campbell

But the problem with this quote is really discovering for yourself "who you are".

Questions start arising in my mind such as: Do I let others determine who I am? What are my actions saying I am? Can I change who I am? WHO IS LYNETTE POWELL MILLER?

Actually... I don't let it frustrate me. I celebrate this quote.

"The privilege of a lifetime is being who I AM."

I am Lynette Powell Miller.
I like to call myself Net, Netty, or even Ned sometimes.
I like who I am.
I am a child of God. God loves me.
God loves ALL his children and wants me to accept others for who THEY are! Not... who Netty wants them to be.
I love my husband and children for who they are.

I am on a lifelong journey to becoming a better me. But first I must celebrate who I am now.
