Here’s a question for your Tuesday mid-morning: Who am I? What am I?
I came across this in my Romanticism class this morning and I wanted to share it with you. It’s the idea of reflecting upon where we’ve been, and imagining where we’re going- what we’re becoming. It’s hard to define who I’ve been, what I am now. A sister, a friend, a daughter. A lover, a confidant, a scholar. I’ve been happy, sad, angry, and sympathetic. I’ve been dependable, hard-working, devoted, and loyal. But is it enough to list these labels? These adjectives? Do they mean anything?
And where on Earth am I going?! I have never been more confused about my future than I am right now- right when my future is about to begin. Grad school, teaching job, traveling- the options are endless and I just have no idea what’s in store for me. I know what I love- but do I know who I am?
