Self Discovery

I have spent my life searching for my purpose.  What sparks my soul?  I have discovered  that the moments in life, when I have the most clarity, are during my times of solitude.  Trust me, this is not easy, especially for a person that needs to speak/write 200,000 words daily to truly be happy.  (Or so I have been told!)

Where the water and sky meet…
I was never one that enjoyed time alone.   I left the world of education, after 22 years of teaching little people and found myself surrounded by solitude.  Solitude speaks the truth…  I let go of who I had been for over 22 years and began to embrace My Discovery of Self.    As trite as it may sound, I no longer lived in the closet.  I was finally true to myself.  At that moment, I found my whole self and truly began to shine.


I will never be finished with my Discovery of Self.  That thought fills me with excitement!

Spend some quality time fostering a relationship with your reflection…YOU.  Trust me, it is the most exciting  and rewarding adventure you will ever experience!

“When I accept myself, I am freed from the burden of needing you to accept me.”

~Dr. Steve Maraboli

Love Yourself…Embrace Yourself…Just Be You…

  1. Nicely composed ! This takes me back to the time when I was on my path of self-discovery and I when I gradually start understanding my purpose and my true self. I feel happiest now as I know what I want from life and know that I am on right path !

  3. Hello, Roda, I Love this piece. I just recently started soul-searching and self-discovery. (At least writing about in my own blog. I couldn’t agree with you more in regards to the time you spend alone, the simplicity, tranquility, and solitude that is felt throughout your mind, body, and soul. I look forward to reading more about your self-discovery. I found this inspiring. Thank you, Beckie
