The true you begins with your essence, your core, your soul....whatever you want to call it. It's what you are born with and it stays with you all of your life. It leads you to your calling and and it is your purpose in life. It's the energy within you that shows you the path to happiness and joy. If you listen carefully it tells you how to be, and everything else grows from that starting point. It's what you experience of yourself in those moments of solitude and silence when the rest of the world drifts away, you look inwards and you are left with nothing but yourself.
We are not what we do or what we have. These are things that we use to express our inner "being" to the rest of the world. The more joyous and at ease we are with these expressions then probably the closer we are to sharing our true selves. Discover what makes you happy, what values hold the essence of your personal energy and let that be the guide that serves you as you travel life's many roads. If you can do that then you will surely find satisfaction and beauty in everything you do.
