On the Day I Interview Myself

By Wendy Stewart-Hamilton



One day I will interview myself.

Iíll ask me all the hard questions and

Not accept Ďno commentí for an answer.

Iíll ask questions that lead me

To think beyond the limits of the present;

The confines of the past;

And the desires of the future.

Iíll not accept that all is out of my control,

For I know Free Will is a choice given to me.

I can choose to be inspired.

I can choose to be motivated.

I can choose to be the one God

Designed me to be.

On the day I interview myself

Iíll ask me why I waited so long.

Iíll ask me why I keep waiting.

Iíll remind myself that itís not good to wait.

By now in my interview, I will have thoroughly

Convinced myself of something I knew all along:

Today is lifeís present gift.

On the day I interview myself

Iíll ask myself what really makes me, Me.

Iím sure at first Iíll respond with

An answer like ďGodís designĒ, that

I know will not be enough.

I then will lead more with my heart

And talk about how I love people.

How their victories make me smile

How their losses make me weep

And how I need them as much as

I think they need me.

Iíll talk about my burden.

My dream.

My vision.

My idea,

To create something so adventurous

That I wonder how I could even think

On so broad a scheme.

Iíll sit back and smile knowing that

My interview has hit the heart of

My fears, my insecurities and has

Declared them all relatively unimportant.

Because I, too, have a dream.

By this very act of possession I am listed

Among the greatest that ever walked

On the face of the earth, who thought

Themselves to be the least.

On the day I interview myself

Iíll realize why big dreams

Are given to the little Man,

Because we trust not in ourselves

But in a bigger God.

As I answer, I will realize my burden.

My dream.

My vision.

My idea.

Werenít really my own at all.

They were taken from a book in Heaven

Called ďHerein Lies Your StoryĒ

As I talk, Iíll realize that my life

Is being checked off.

Been there, done that.

And I am eternally grateful

For a second chance.

Iíll pause for a minute

Smile my favorite smile

And turn tables on my Interviewer

ďDo you think God has neat handwriting?Ē

Iíll laugh with myself at

My inside joke and the interview will

Continue and continue.

On the day I interview myself,

I will realize that I must always

Ask questions, seek answers

Find knowledge, Hunt Wisdom

Keep treasures, Guard Secrets

Be faithful, Be noble,

Honorable, Worthy, Precious,

Gracious, and a good steward

Of all Iíve been given.

On the day I interview myself

Iíll lean forward and whisper

ďYou know this interview isnít over?Ē

Iíll answer back, with the same

Favorite smile,

ďI know.Ē

ďGodís not finished with me, yet.Ē
