Life is about Creating Yourself

“Life isn’t about Finding Yourself. Life is about Creating Yourself.”

This saying is on a quotable magnet stuck to the side of my sister’s breadbox. I first noticed it while standing around in her busy kitchen Christmas Eve, relishing my brother-in-law’s famous fudge and Martha Washingtons, and drinking coffee. As broccoli and rice and sweet potatoes and rolls were getting pushed into the oven and a roast was getting pulled out, and the family mingled and pinched bites off this and that, I sat down on a barstool in front of the magnet and feasted my eyes on it. Christmas morning, early, I sat at the bar again, eating an apple roll and drinking coffee and pondering it.

I think it’s worth remembering and living by.
