Goodnight Moon called What defines you?. It got me to thinking (as most of her posts do). How do I define myself? Christina, Who the heck are you?!
As I pondered the question, I wondered what the question entails. What makes a person who they are? Is it their job, their marital status, their accomplishments? Is it just personality traits, your kids? Does your past define you?
WHAT does it mean?
Do you let the fact that your SO is a service member define you, being a Military Wife (girlfriend, fiance.. etc)?
Do you let others define you?
Enough with the 20 questions game.
Who am I? I am me. I am a wife, a military wife.. a United States Navy wife. I wear the title proudly.
I'm a writer, whether the words on this screen are good or not, I am a writer.
I am a strong minded individual, I am passionate.
My past, is that.. it is the past. Because of the challenges, the tears, the happy moments... the good and the bad, I am who I am today. Does that Define me? I don't necessarily see it as defining who I am, but because of some of those things.. I have been molded into the individual I am today.
What have I accomplished? Alot. I have my own business. Not one business, but two businesses. I am a hard worker and I set goals that push me to strive for the best.
Defining yourself is such a broad spectrum. There can be so many things depending on what you think "Defining yourself means".
I have asked myself many times "Who are you?".
All I can say is, "I am me". It's as simple as that.
