This week's question is going to scare a few. Don't let it. Be brave! Do your journaling first then create your layout. It took me awhile to figure this one out for myself. I could have written thoughts down for pages and pages.
Have you thought about who you are? What makes you? Not a mom, a daughter, a wife employee or employer. Drop away all the things around you that define you as a job description and answer this week's question.
What Makes You You?
Here's my answer:
What makes me? I have a great joy and assurance that God orders my steps. In that I have the freedom to be who I am. I am defined by that freedom. I can be free to be who God created me to be. My passions, love and loyalties are a part of who I am. Sometimes I ponder about my own passions to be the best “me“, to set goals and work very hard towards them, what drives me. I’m free to be who I am. That makes me unique. Being “me” is a freedom and acceptance of who I am.
