Is this who I am? Sometimes I catch myself acting differently around different types of people. This post is for me to look at when I’m too busy, caught up in life and need a reminder of why I’m here. This post is for me so I can hold myself to my degree of integrity. This post is for me to look at when I feel like I’m having conflicting identities.
This is for me…
I want to be the kind of man who is interesting, regardless of who I am with.
The kind of man who spends life finding value he can give to others.
The kind of man who is creative and confident in his imagination.
A man of kindness and affection.
The kind of man able to articulate his thoughts clearly through every medium: words, music, speech, art.
The kind of man who is not absent minded, intensely focused and aware of every moment.
The kind of man who builds an image of himself as someone motivated by learning difficult things.
The kind of man proud of having worked hard rather than being smart and talented.
The kind of man who not just experiences, but also puts into words and shares with other people.
The kind of man who looks for change.
The kind of man who sees the value in you before you need to say anything.
A best friend.
The kind of man with eyes that look into your soul and makes you want to tell stories about yourself.
The kind of man who won’t stroke your ego but will build you up.
The kind of man who sees the beauty of ideas before everybody else does.
The kind of man who is comfortable showing affection.
The kind of man who makes you think and feel…
The kind of man you notice when he’s in the room and the one you miss when he’s not.
The kind of man who acts out of love and passion.
The kind of man who is educated and talks about issues that matter to people.
The same person in work and play.
The person who makes you think about things you’ve never thought about before.
The kind of man who doesn’t need to tell people about starting, but shows up with progress.
The kind of man who never grows old because he is always changing things up in his life.
The kind of man who laughs at his mistakes.
The kind of man who wanders the path of questioning and failure, but never forgets to look at the beauty around him.
This post was inspired by a similar post Andrea made, thanks for making me think about myself in this manner.
