Midnight Motivation and Musings # 75…


Who are you?

This singular question is one that throws a lot of people off balance and they begin to grapple for adequate answers.

Who are you is not necessarily synonymous with ‘what do you do?’

You could do many different things career-wise over  your lifetime, yet remain who you are if those things don’t have any profound effect in changing your intrinsic characteristics.

Are you able to denude yourself by peeling away all the onion layers to find the truth of the being hidden inside?

Our passion can help us uncover who we are as it leads us on the journey of self-discovery, however, our passion can also serve as a mask for not looking deep enough to gain a better understanding of who we are.

It’s only when you know yourself, that you begin to know your purpose.

Keep pondering over this question as often as possible in the solitude of your heart until who you are, crystallizes before your eyes.

  1. Wise words. I remember a time when a person’s reputation was really important. We called it “having a good name”. Now it seems that financial success or inherited wealth is more important than being a good person.

    1. I agree! I am what I do–a storyteller and a project manager–you can take me out of the office and drop me in a desert and those two basic facts about me won’t change. They are ingrained in my personality.

I love it when you decorate my heart with your words..
