Who am I?

Tuesday, December 31, 2013

I actually started my last post off with these particular things in mind by my mind actually took me somewhere else and it was way more profound then I intended it to be at the beginning. Ah the therapy of journaling right?

Any way, Who am I? is a question that I have been asking myself a lot lately. Who am I and who do I want to be? What do I allow to define who I am? I feel like in the last 8-9 years I have forgotten who I am . That could be some of the problems my husband and I have been facing in our marriage. I am not the fun girl he married because I never dealt with some wounds that I had before we got married.

So, who am I?

-I am a wife
-I am a mother
-I am a musician/ Music lover
-I love watching hockey
-I am simple but elegant
-I love jazz music and musicals
-I love going to theatre shows
-I am a teacher
-I love kids (they are another passion of mine), most days more then I like adults.
-I love shows like Friends, New Girl, and How I Met Your Mother. They are all about relationships and human interaction.
-I find how and why people communicate interesting and I love the psychology side of it
-I hold a master's degree
-I used to be a dancer
-I am a passionate, loyal, determined person
-I am a forgiving person
-I love to read (although I have not finished a book in about 6-8 months, not for lack of time but because I cannot seem to commit to a book).
-I am a christian and child of God but I am not your typical christian. I believe that it is not my place to judge anyone's lifestyle and that the way to turn people to Christ is not by telling them they are going to hell and what they are doing is wrong. I feel that only turns them further away and we all have our mistakes and places in our hearts that we made mistakes or bad choices.
-On that note, I am terrified of making a big mistake.
-My husband is the only man I ever dated.

I am a work in progress.

    Hey, good blog because you have a foundation for who you are. I'm doing the writing diet by Julia Cameron. She suggests writing morning pages (3) in streaming style... let it all happen... then commit to a 20 minute walk. It is amazing to me how much I have accomplished in a few short weeks. Of course looking at your list you have a lot on your plate. Hard to find time for that kind of exercise (the writing). She has other tools too but I think for creative people like yourself making sure you have opportunities to express that creativity really ARE therapeutic. It helps to get to those places that need to be healed and work them out. I visualize my problems with food to be like a dragon that I can't slay.. I have to walk it three times a day for meals. Not how most people see food behaviours who can simply diet and exercise and be normal. Food was part of coping for me. It's late, lol and I may be making no sense, but I like what you wrote. Good luck in this journey to find yourself.
