I think I've lost sight of who I really am. If someone were to ask me, I could make a list of the roles I have.
Mom
Daughter
Granddaughter
Sister
Friend
Blogger
Web Content Editor
Woman
Follower of Christ
Host Team Leader

I could tell you what I like to do.
Read
Write
Cross Stitch
Play games
Yoga
Dance
Learn stuff
Watch TV

I can tell you the things I wish I could do.
Dance
Cook
Paint
Write

I have the persona I preset online. The funny Facebook poster. The helpful and sometimes thoughtful blogger. The mom with cool kids.

But none of those are who I really am.

Or are they?

Are we just the sum of all the things we do?

Where do our emotional lives fit in?

Maybe I've become so good at handling things I've forgotten how to just be. Or I don't have time to just be because of all the things that I do.

If you were to ask someone else who they thought you were, they would probably make a list of the things you do.

There is more than just the things we do. I know it. I just don't know what that might be right now.
