Jour du Journal: Who are You?

It may seem like a simple question, Who are you? But we are obviously more, much more than our name, our address, social security number, and line of work. We have personal likes, dislikes, memories, opinions, hopes, dreams, and hurts. Usually we reveal a certain amount of this personal information to our family and friends, but how much more do we keep inside? Even hidden from ourselves?

I believe we were put on this earth to achieve our potential, to use our gifts and talents, and if you are unable to for whatever reason, then you are unhappy. Fulfillment = happiness. Think of the times in your life when you were most relaxed, most content, and lost time doing whatever it was. (This is called Flow. But more on that another post.) This is your authentic self and the key to your potential.

If you are to achieve all the things you have the potential for you first need to get to know yourself; where you came from, where you are, and where you are going.

Today I would like you to get to know yourself a little better. Using these three questions that Christina Baldwin asks in Life’s Companion:

I used to be a person who…
I am now a person who…
I want to be a person who…

Write for as long as you need to.
