so, who are you anyway?

Posted by the prisoner's wife On 9:30 AM

i have struggled to define myself for so long.

for years i allowed others' definitions of me become who i was, as least temporarily. as a mother & wife, i'm having a hard time really figuring out who i am. like...who would i really be without all of these titles (mommy/wife/teacher/sister/daughter/visitor of inmate #06XXXXX)?

when i'm still, when there is no one around who needs anything, then who am i really?

& who are you?

    What a scary, enlightening, beautiful, question. I know more about who I don't want to be than who I am. Being closer to 40 than 30 is a big eye opener to who I am.
    I am still a student of life, and even tho I have a family "walking alone" still comes in to play once in a while, it can be the hardest thing for me, but I do it because it's what helps me stay true to my purpose, to holding on to that small corner inside that is truly me.

    Wonderful post sweetie:)

    This is the ONLY real question. And the pursuit of the answer is lifes only real task. The beauty of this is that everything you do is included on that journey of discovery.
