So many times when people ask who we are we use a series of ways to describe ourselves that may go something like this: I am (insert name here), a daughter, a friend, (insert horoscope sign), a Democrat, a lover, a fighter…you get the picture. Some folks identify who they are with their looks, money, or job. I realize now that none of the above mentioned things are actually me.
If I’m anything at all, I’m a stand for being something for this world, to give something to everyone. I stand for love, joy, and vitality as a way of being and as who I am, here’s why:
*Love because I believe it is the answer to everything.
*Joy because when I’m truly present in the moment, this is all I feel.
*Vitality because I take great pleasure in taking care of my body, being strong, most importantly having fun.
Whenever I begin to question who I am, or what I’m doing with my life…these words set me straight and remind me of my true nature. Someday these words will be all I use to identify myself.
Today I’m grateful for: my adorable dog, girls nights downtown, and having brunch with my parents.
