Many of us are motivated by the fundamental question of “who are you?”. We spend a good portion of our lives “finding ourselves” and going through different experiences and making certain choices because we believe that this will help find who we are. But how do you know when you’re found? Do you have an “ah-ha!” moment? Do you tell yourself “there you are! I was looking all over for you!” For me, I don’t know that I will ever find myself because I am always striving to be a better me. I am hungry to continue to gain knowledge, meaningful relationships and make a real difference. These thoughts came to mind when I saw the words ‘who are you’ written on at the base of a light pole in Brooklyn, NY. I wondered about the person who wrote those words. What were their thoughts when they wrote it? This sense of wonder was flooding my brain while strolling on a cracked, uneven sidewalk on a Sunday afternoon, with my hands in my Kenneth Cole coat because the 32 degree weather in March was not merciful.
So, as you’re reading this, I can almost guarantee you asked yourself the same question. Who are you? We would love to hear your thoughts on this topic. Feel free to comment below.
