WHO I AM – Day 32 in a year of…

Day 32, August 23, 2016 @7:57 pm

I am thinking of who I am today.  The truth is I am just discovering the who that is under my exterior.  I am like the melancholic stranger in Acker Bilk’s Stranger on the Shore watching the tide go out.  I’m the more melancholy realizing that all I have been is the reflection of what people think/want/expect me to be.  I’m none of that which is written about boys and money in the high school year book.  I’m much more than I have ever shown – even to myself.


This coming year is going to be an exciting one.  I’m going to peel back the layers, like an onion as they say.  I will get to know myself.  I have put behind me the uncertain child, the confused teenager, the caretaker and pleaser of others.  I will grow up and live my life.  I have now put behind me the years of shift work.  I have caught up on my sleep.  I have come back into myself.  No more excuses.  Do you have any?

Till tomorrow.


About hafong

Hello! My name is (Leung) Hafong alias Lily Leung. You always say the last name first….that is the Chinese way. That is my partner lurking behind me. Since this is my blog, I won’t mention his name. But this is a rather cool picture. You see me and yet you don’t…sort of the way I feel about myself most of my life. So this blog is a self-exploration, an archeology dig of some sort. My tools…..words of a thousand or so at a sitting. I will try for that.
