Finding yourself…

I for one believe that this is an ongoing process that life offers.
Think about it… The more we grow, the more we realise just how much growth has to done!

For instance we grow up chasing ‘the next age’ like…
13-year-olds just can’t wait to be 16-year-olds who can’t wait to be 21-year-olds who can’t wait to be employed and married! For me this is the real rat race, one that I believe we should stop by slowing down and realising that the same ‘future me’ that we all seek is me right now! And we should allow and guide ourselves to grow into that Future Us.

The time is there, let us use it. Not to rob ourself off today in the rush for tomorrow but to enjoy our today as it transforms into our tomorrow.

Here is a piece I wrote one evening, it is titled ‘Who Are You?’ Please feel free to leave your comments, even if it’s just a smiley 😀

Who Are You
by Aphelele Chonco

Who are you, consistently?
Who are you on the daily?

No book claims you should be the same being everyday
Yet there is that certain character we all try to be
That certain box we fit ourselves into

Who are you?

Are worth the pain you suffer from
That pain you cause when you try re-mould yourself?
When you make carvings on your bare being so you can be reshaped…
You work so hard to find yourself

Should it be such a puzzle?
Why is it such a mission, to find your own essence
Truth is you spend all your hours with the person you seek!

So I’ll ask again, Who Are YOU?


  1. Wow, this is deep, I cannot really explain who am I because the truth, is I do not yet know. I have decided to put aside this project of knowing myself and instead focus on making sure that I achieve my dreams.


  2. That is a beautiful and I rate is the best decision to make Sihle Dlamini
