Who am I, really?
Can you answer this question without thinking about it? Can you answer it at all? I’m not talking about the labels (wife/husband, mother/father, sister/brother, job title, etc.) All of us can do that. Most of us think we know who we are. We claim to know what we like or dislike, what our favorite music, books, TV program, or movie is. We think we know what makes us happy, sad, angry, etc. Many of us work in a job we hate, because it pays the bills and we honestly don’t know what would make us jump out of bed in the morning, excited to go to work. Do we truly “know” who we are or are we mirroring what our family, friends, co-workers, and society in general expects of us?
This weekly series will look at who “you” are, not what you reflect to people based upon their expectations. It requires you to be “honest” with yourself even if it becomes uncomfortable to do so. Put aside the expectations of others and the fear of judgement, look deep within to find out who you truly are.
Each week we will pose a question or topic for you to carefully ponder. There are no right/wrong answers and you don’t need to share your thoughts unless you wish. The intent is to get you thinking about who “you” are.
Everyone has a gift. Do you know what yours is or is a hidden talent you haven’t discovered yet? Think about how you use or would use this gift to improve your life and the life of others.
