Your "self" isn't immutable. You aren't "a certain type of person". You are an evolving experiment. One that is certainly affected by the observer, and one whose outcome is affected by the inputs. If you want to carry something different in your heart, you can do that. You just have to want it bad enough that you can let go of the person you have been.

Growth is the theme this week.  I am a relentless promoter of YOU, and what you can accomplish.  I believe so much in nearly everyone's ability to change their situation that I start to sound like a broken record at times.  But... talking about it is the easy part...

Your path is your path

And while it may be informed by the good and bad choices of all those who came before you, you (and you only) bear responsibility for your path.
