Every few weeks I tend to experience an identity crisis. I have the awful plague of being a creative and ambitious individual which means nothing is ever good enough, including myself. In order to pull myself out of this hopeless hole, I have to do something that will lead me back to remembering who I really am. Sometimes it’s rambling on to my boyfriend about how I’m too far behind to do anything worthwhile in my life, to which he usually responds with reassuring words about how everyone loves everything I do. Other times it’s chatting with best friends who usually tell me how much they admire my strength and courage.
Today it happens to be that I’m reminded of who I am by my birth date. Everyone loves reading descriptions of themselves and their potential futures, in hopes that their own self-image and desired goals will be confirmed as what destiny had intended for them. While I do believe that we are in control of our own lives, I also think you can’t get anywhere without knowing thyself.
Here are a few favorite excerpts from my own birth date, which I intend to remember for the rest of my life. September 1oth is the Day of Private Goals in the Week of The Enigma in the Month of the Regulator in the Season of Development.
Those born on September 10 are fortunate if they discover an activity in youth which becomes their passion in adulthood. More often they find themselves cast adrift on the sea of life. They seem to have it all, and indeed can offer great peace and security to any prospective partner. Yet they lead a secret inner life, and their passions are not so controlled.
Sooner or later, they may realize that they must concentrate on their own life, and be courageous enough not only to stand on their own two feet but define themselves—not their company, family or mate—as the most important entity.
September 10 people must not allow themselves to stagnate; they should reach within and find ever more interesting areas in which they can develop and grow. Achieving worldly success is rarely in itself the answer for September 10 people—they are usually searching for something more elusive and profound.
- Pay more attention to yourself—not only to your needs but to your wants.
- Follow your own path and develop the talents you have been given to the fullest.
- Don’t judge others too harshly, nor yourself.
- Expand your horizons to include wider possibilities for the future.
There’s tons more to read but I won’t continue to bore you. Check out your own birth date here!
I’m sure that just like me, you sometimes forget what it is you are fighting for. Hopefully by looking in the mirror, you’ll be reminded that you are fighting to be the best version of you (and only you).
