Who are you?
And who am I? This is something I’m currently wrestling with. I know what I do and what I’m good at, but is that who I am? Musician, web designer, photographer — these are things I’m good at and enjoy doing, but at my core who am I really? I started working on a list of how I see myself. It’s rather long and I purposely left off the negative things I occasionally struggle with.
If you were to look in the dictionary under your name, what would it say? Would three words just about cover it, or would it take several pages?
If you were to create an ID card that represents who you are, what would be on it? What would you leave off? Would it include a recent picture? Your accomplishments? Your beliefs or affiliations? Your abilities?
Take a moment and read through this list. Hopefully you’ll begin to get a better picture of how amazing you are.
