Day 3 and we’re already asking the tough questions.
I’m sure most of the people who will take part in this challenge already know something about the others. Many of us have been taking part in these challenges, or others, for several years.
And now, here we go again.
So who am I?
Well, I think the definition of who we are has changed for most of us. Over the course of the past couple of year, I know I have taken a different look at myself. I’m sure many have done the same. And part of it is also how you look at others you are close with … and how that defines you as well.
I guess, honestly, the answer is I have no idea who I am.
I do know, though, that I’ve changed. Mostly, I think, for the good. There are some parts that I don’t particularly like, and I’m working on that as well.
Alas, we’re all human.
The one thing I’ve really changed about myself in recent years is where I want to be – geographically. I had always wanted to be in a mid-size city, or right on the outskirts. But as I get older, I like being in the smaller town, especially with how things can be in the current state of affairs. It’s peaceful. It’s calm. Well, for the most part. And, at the same time, if I need to get somewhere, I can get there.
I’m more simple in my tastes now, too. Getting a dog has helped with that aspect.
Here’s some reality, too. As we grow older, we start wrestling with morality. We all know our time on Earth is limited, so we need to make the most of it. How one does it rests solely on what they deem is important. The changes in life we’ve had to deal with in the past couple of years puts a lot of things into perspective. At least for me.
So in the end… I’m just me. Who I am gets redefined each day … and hopefully it’s always for the best.
How about you? Who are you?
