Who am I?
I am a woman, a wife, a mom. I am a daughter, a sister, a daughter-in-law. I am an accountant, a former dancer, a choreographer, a writer.
But in the middle of all of this, who am I?
I am someone that everyone else also is. I am just trying to feel important, to be myself, to be special. I am someone and I am no one.
How many of us feel this way? How many of us feel like we haven’t changed in a while or that we are stuck?
There was a time in my life I was moving constantly. I had places to go and things to do. Life changes. I felt important and needed in a different way that I am needed now. It keeps going and sometimes, until we stop to take a look, we don’t realize that everything around us has also changed.
But we haven’t changed. We seem to be in the same place that we were.
How do we remain people that we recognize? Will we always be restless when we are stagnant? Or is it okay to be content with your life however it is currently?
Should we be putting in more effort to be interesting, to be challenged? Is being happy the same as being accepting? Or should we try to change our life to be what we imagine?
It seems as though, every few years, I have to reinvent myself to catch up with the times. It’s like I suddenly wake up and realize that I need to move forward as well.
What do you do to keep moving forward? What do you do to find your happiness?
