Wife. Daughter. Sister. Teacher. Friend. These are some of the roles I play in life. They have become what define me. I have discovered the closer I adhere to each role, I lose a bit more of my identity; the “je ne sais quoi” that makes me unique. The mundane sameness of each day has trapped me into playing the roles I wear and forgetting who I really am. Most days I find myself on autopilot just trying to make it to the end of the day.
All too often, the roles we claim begin to take ownership of who we are as a person and we lose our sense of unique individuality. Don’t you remember that feeling of knowing exactly who you were? I remember feeling strong, confident and comfortable in my skin. Now I just feel tired most of the time.
It’s time for a change. It’s time to take a step back to gain some clarity and fresh perspective. I need to know who I am now and what I want for my life. I don’t know what that may be, but I am pretty excited to find out. I hope you will join me on this journey. It might be a little scary, but Finding Yourself might just be the best thing you ever do.
