I’ve been reading the book “Love Warrior” by Glennon Doyle. She posed a question to herself. She simply asked “who am I? Without the work I do or the people I love, who am I?”.
Well this threw me for a loop! We all define ourselves by who we love and what we do!!!! All the time!! I’m a wife, I’m a mother, I’m a sister, I’m a friend, I’m a secretary, I’m a doctor, I’m a teacher. I talked about this in a related blog post and I know (now) the universe was preparing me for things to come.
Try it once, right now. When you meet someone new and you’re doing your regular introductions, imagine for a moment, what do you say to them? Do you describe yourself in those terms I mentioned above?
It’s hard right?
I’ve described myself in the past as a wife, a mother, I have a Bachelors Degree of Science in Information Technology and I’m a Project Leader for a global company. Well, that WHOLE thing has to be redone! Can you believe I described myself this way for most of my adult life?
So my mission today is to write in my journal WHO I ACTUALLY AM. Am I just a somewhat happy/introverted human being? HA!
You should try the same! Or better yet, tell me in the comments so I can get ideas. Bahahahaha!
