...to best describe yourself?
Do you default towards love or fear-based descriptors?
Are anxious, frustrated, and depressed the first to come to mind?
Or do content, significant, and confident top the list?
If you're like most, it's a mixed bag...join the human race!
You should be able to draw a line between the words you use to paint the picture of yourself and your current lifestyle and quality of life.
You may believe that your prevailing situation is causing you to feel a certain way, but it's more accurate to say that the emotions you frequent have led to your conditions.
If you're like most, you have a list of things you want to do and believe that once you accomplish that list, then you'll feel differently.
Oh, I wish that were true, but it's not!
Accomplishing important and productive tasks aren't capable of sustainably altering your emotional states.
At best, you'll get a quick high, and then, slowly begin to default towards the familiar feelings associated with your limiting beliefs.
I realize that sounds pessimistic, but we either embrace the nature of reality, or we fight it with everything we've got, wishing it would conform to our expectations.
In all likelihood, the words you predominantly use to describe yourself match the experiences of your formative years.
Don't confuse the events of your life for your identity!
Once you contemplate and rediscover who you were before you were wounded, and learn to live out of that space, peaceful, loving, and joyous will describe themselves for you.
"Identity cannot be found or fabricated, but emerges from within when one has the courage to let go." Doug Cooper
