I asked myself, Who Am I?

Updated on January 26, 2013

I felt like I was in disguise


As I am getting older I have to ask myself... Who am I?

I realize every so often that once again I have forgot me!!! WOW with that being said I am a student of God and College,Wife, mother of 6, Domestic Violence Speaker, Handy woman. I am still very forgetful of who I am. I realize that I have learned a lot along the way. I never want to lose myself, being so much of every thing else that I forget just where I am headed. I find myself at times in a whirlwind of emotions, thoughts and words.

It started somewhere in the middle of last year... I was astonished that I couldn't even remember what I liked to do anymore. So caught up in what everyone else liked and needed, I couldn't believe that I had forgotten. Feeling like such an idiot at a woman's gathering I thought I don't know what I like to do. I am an awesome cook. However I don't like to cook. I am an awesome mother. I really don't like to watch other peoples children.What do I like? I started to try and teach myself again. I began by trying new things I had decided that I didn't really do, like reading. I realized that I love to be personable. I love to value people. Not a people pleaser though i have been at times. I have no problem telling someone if I don't agree or having my own opinion. I really love to value the life and goodness of others. Okay so that's not everyone. Anyway the purpose of this post is not to tell you what I found out about me. It is to ask you to evaluate yourself. As you look in the mirror what do you see? Are you still striving for the dreams that your heart desires or are you simply pushing through.... What you call life? Wake up the time is now. close your eyes remember that fire burning down on the inside, do everything you can to fulfill it.. It is called purpose.We tend to drag through life angry at every one and thing when the real truth is we have put ourselves on hold. Thinking we will have time later. The time we have is now! I encourage you to live out your dreams & desires I promise you wont be sorry. At the end of this life I wan't to say I have done all that I was purposed for. There is nothing left on this earth for me to do... Then I will begin again in eternity!

      I share your desire to finish my life with a sense of mission completed. That sense of purpose keeps us focused, and mindful that we must first BE and then DO. Thanks for your passionate presentation.

      This is akin to something I call "taking self-inventory." As the saying goes, "the unexamined life is not worth living." Congrats to you for reminding yourself of all you are, and all you do. I'm praying those you love demonstrate their appreciation to you, for all you are and all you do.

      Thank you so much.. I was thinking what better of a resoulution. Finding who you are. The truth is we only get so much time.. I wanna live faithful, with my heart on my sleave. Uncovered free from being held in unhappiness and unforgiveness. Cause lets face it when we are lost from ourselves how can we be content. We have tendancy to take it out on other.

      I remember thinking about this when I was a young child: who am I and what is my purpose. God put that in our hearts to steer us torwards him. Your words are encouraging and inspirational in helping readers to think about why they exist and to be content with who they are. Thanks for your truthful sharing. Blessings.
