Who Are You?

I have been reading countless self-help/self-discovery books the last few months. Mostly to occupy my mind and read things that help me feel like I am not crazy (ha). Being in your early twenties is such a weird age, still young and struck with confusion, yet old enough to be on your own and “responsible.” I started reading a book this morning titled “The Untethered Soul.” And it posed the question…

Who are you?

Not who you’re the daughter of, wife of, what your name is….but really who ARE you? Honestly, I have never really thought about who I am before. The question of who you are becomes so routine, “I am Emily, Logans wife, 23…yada yada.” But when you really take a moment and think about who you are and what defines you, it’s kind of difficult to put into an answer.

The way I look at it is, you really can’t accurately describe yourself in a  way that everyone will understand. It’s more about being able to understand yourself. Everything that has happened in your life has shaped who you are as a person: where you grew up, how you were raised, where/if you traveled around, even choices that you’ve made. What you see, what you hear, and what you experience, is all who you are.

I am an optimist, shaped by my many travels and mistakes, fumbling my way down the path to success.

So tell me, who are you?
