When you ask yourself that question, or if someone asks ‘Who are you’, what is your response?
Do you list your accomplishments? Or do you list your failure?
Or do you start with good and end with bad?
Who am I?...
My standard answer was [my kids] mom. Sometimes I would share a job title, but that would be about it. No more to me? Really?
When I began this new part of my life, I had a friend ask me to write down my accomplishments. My first stab at that list was ‘I’ve almost raised my kids’... that was about it. She looked at me and said “You need to think about it more and add to that list. Write down events or tasks you felt proud of after completing. Big or small, it does not matter, what has made you feel proud?”
