Losing yourself.

If you've seen the movie Runaway Bride, you are familiar with "The egg test".
How do you like your eggs?
Scrambled?
Over easy?
Eggs Benedict?
Poached?
Fried?

My whole life I thought I liked my eggs scrambled...
because everyone I know eats them that way. So...
I sat down and realllyyyyy thought about it.
Ive come to an eye opening conclusion...
I hate eggs!

That got me thinking. What do "I" like?
Me. Myself. and Only I.
Do I let people influence my decision making?!
Oh.My. I DO!

How disappointing.
I want to be authentic. So that's it.
I am going on my own adventure.
It's time about time I break out of the mold people create for me. It's time I find Brooke.

So many new things are blossoming in my life. I want to leave my old dried out petals behind.
Far behind. Each new petal that replaces an old one will be so much stronger and brighter.

No more losing myself in others.
I am me. Myself. and Only I.

I want to give myself new challenges...
Help me! Challenge me!

Whoo-hoo!!! I just watched that movie last weekend...i luv it :)
Especially the part about the eggs, because these little decisions that we think don't matter...they really do. They make up who we are.
You're discovery of yourself is just beginning and i can't wait to read more. May your adventure take you places near and far. {{Hugs}}

YES! good for you...it's a crazy realization to come to that you have defined yourself by what others think and want for you. i was about your age when i made the same realization. (and by the way, i too hate eggs even though i ate them scrambled for years but only with cheese) now, what challenges to take upon yourself, in other words - what to do next?! i am so excited to see what you'll come up with. take on new adventures. go new places, meet people, have great conversations, take classes, read TONS, think TONS. road trips are always good for the soul...time with your family and sisters...and plenty of time alone, with yourself, taking in the moments and songs and tiny littlest things that make your heart sing. i am thrilled for your journey! and your son will be a stronger and better boy and young man growing up with a momma who truly knows and accepts and loves and appreciates the details of her real, true self.
