Who Am I?


Who Am I - Michelle Collins

Hello, I am…

A mind in search of greater understanding
wisdom
love
beauty
wonder

A will that struggles against evil
darkness
plastic
falsehood
wrong doing

A heart that longs for unconditional love
constant peace
contentment
intimacy
untaintedness

Who are you?

Have you ever seen the movie Eat, Pray, Love.  I have.  Actually, I’ve seen it about three or four times.  I love experiencing other cultures, so it’s no wonder that this movie caught my attention.  I would like to share just one little part of it with you and ask you to think about what it is that defines you.

While the main character, Liz was in Rome, she was having lunch with a group of friends and they were giving words to define various places in the world.  ‘Sex’ defined Rome, ‘stuffiness’ defined London and ‘ambition’ or ‘soot’ defined New York. Liz’s friends then asked her what her word would be.  She said she was a ‘writer’.  However, I would have to agree with her friends that told her that ‘writer’ doesn’t define ‘who’ she is, but ‘what’ she does.

Who you are is not what you do.  So what is it that defines you?  How would you define yourself? Maybe even in just a word hmmmmm….
