Have you ever stopped to think about who you are? A few hours ago I sat down in the car and put my head back before a long drive home and these words popped into my head, “Who am I?”
You can imagine my concern when after ten seconds passed and I still had not come up with a satisfying answer! But why? Or perhaps, why not? Mentally, I began to follow that strand. Why couldn’t I answer that question? But as I thought, I started to think maybe I wasn’t the only one in the world who could not answer this question.
Eyes closed, I thought about everything I do, and everything I want to do in my life. And that’s when it hit me…I was asking the wrong question. It didn’t matter how many “qualities” I could name, or “answers” I could give because I realized that none of it was really relevant to what really mattered. Who I am now, is not who I will always be.
I am growing, I am learning. Even now, the person I was before I started typing isn’t who I am now as I wrap this thought up! Crazy, isn’t it?
This headache of an episode left me thinking even more. What if we stopped asking “Who am I?” and started asking, “Who will I become?” I curiously wonder what kind of answers we could all come up with–I know I have mine.
Leave your thoughts for both questions below! But please, remember, that you are amazing.
