While the New Year is still so new, and many of us are thinking about what we’ll do this year (maybe even some of us want to reinvent ourselves this year), a popular saying comes to mind…

“I need to go out and find myself!”

I’m not a big fan of this saying. Taken literally, it’s ridiculous. “Find yourself? You’re right here. Mission accomplished!” Figuratively, I also find it pretty silly. You’re in control of your own destiny. There’s nothing to find. What you need to do is go out and create yourself. Meet people. Do things. Have new experiences. Learn. Follow your passion. If you don’t know what your passion is, then follow your curiosity. The point is, things don’t only happen to you. You also interact with the world to create your experiences. You are the most influential person in creating who you are. So go out and create!
