Whooooo Are You? Who? Who?

Posted: March 7, 2011 in Uncategorized

In keeping with a running theme on this blog, y’know, the one where I challenge you to accept and acknowledge all of yourself, I ask you a deceptively simple question.  On the surface, it’s an easy question.

“I’m a working mom/ dad on my way to being healthy”

“I’m a bitch,  I’m a lover, I’m a child, I’m a mother…”

“I’m a generic carbon unit on the 3rd planetoid from Sol in the Milky Way”

Those are all fine and dandy, except those aren’t who you are.  They are parts and pieces of you, but they don’t DEFINE you.  Sure, I guess you could expand that out into a dictionary sized definition, but that still wouldn’t be all of you.  There’s a galaxy of knowledge and soul inside that body of yours, and that won’t fit anywhere short of inside you.
Galaxies are defined by their own name and an acknowledgment of their existence, plus a healthy dose of respect.   That is the answer to who you are.  The correct answer is “I am ME.  I am [insert full name and list of titles, family ties, etc here.]  I am my own person and no one else’s.”

 

With acknowledgments to The Who and Alanis Morisette for the lyrics.
