Often, it’s not about becoming a new person,
but becoming the person you were meant to be, and already are, but don’t know how to be.
– Heath Buckmaster
I am continually amazed by the number of places online where I find my quote referenced.
The quote first appears in the inaugural book of the Princess Carrina series, Box of Hair: a Fairy Tale. I have not only discovered it being referenced on websites related to self-help and personal struggles, but I’ve also been approached by educators who want to use the quote for teaching/learning purposes.
To say that I am flattered is an understatement. I never realized that this quote would hold so much meaning for so many people. But, I am grateful that it does.
The origins of this quote are from a discussion I had with a coworker who was going through a difficult personal moment – life, relationship, work, everything. Through that conversation I made the statement and it resonated.
I welcome your interpretations, and I hope that you do find personal inspiration in what it means for you and what you want out of life.
