Did you ever wonder how to begin the journey to find out who you are?  Of knowing how to take the first step in self-discovery?  I had a hard time figuring that out when I first began this years-long trek, but then I found an answer.

At one point, and quite recently I might add, I sat down and I made a list.  This list consists of my achievements.  Not just ordinary achievements, but achievements that I pondered over that I knew were extremely important breakthrough points and/or that made my life change in some way for the better. Once I had this list in front of me and could physically see it and read it over, I could then comprehend everything clearly. It was as though a veil had been lifted from my eyes. It formed a picture of me, a very clear picture, one that made me feel like a mirror had been held up to my spiritual face so that I could begin to see myself for who I really am and not the me I have always perceived, i.e. as seen by those around me.  I could see that I have accomplished so many wonderful things, which also made me realize that I am not done dreaming and setting goals for myself to achieve because I love finding the goals that mean something to me and those I love, and I love the moments where I realize I have achieved those goals. It made me realize that stringing together all of these moments is what makes my life meaningful and wonderful.  I also love knowing that I have a purpose; an important purpose and now that I have focus, I can see it.

In order to get you started I am posting a copy of my list below.  I really hope that, if you crave such a journey or have already gotten started with yours, you will find this a jumping-off point toward the heart of who you are.  If you have found other great ways to aid in self-discovery please post them here so that others can benefit from your experiences.
