COME TO OURSELVES
How often have we heard someone say,
"I'm just not myself today"?
This poses an interesting question...
If we are not ourselves today, who shall
we be tomorrow?
Of course, what we are implying is...
that we are not our "better" selves.
"I'm just not myself today" is usually
followed by the profound (?) statement,
"I've just got to get hold of myself."
Again, what we really mean is...that
at the present time, we have a hold of
our less desirable selves, when we would
prefer to be holding on to our more agreeable,
Wrote Emerson, "I want to bring men,
not to me, but to themselves."
May we "come to ourselves"...
while we may still be found.
Be yourself, everyone is taken" Oscar Wilde
