Since I have not been running very consistently lately one question in particular keeps popping into my mind: “What if I was no longer a runner?”
I don’t have any plans to stop running. I just need to tweak some things in my daily schedule and regain the commitment that I once had to it and myself. But that question has led me to think about how much I define myself by what I do.
If you ask me about myself odds are I will tell you what I do for a living. I will then tell you that I am a Mom, runner and blogger. I would probably also mention that I love country music because it would be remiss of me to leave that out.
Now my answer certainly does reveal a lot about me. The things I would mention are definitely big parts of my life and are my primary focus but at the end of the day they tell you nothing about ME.
You could strip all of that stuff away (except for being a mom of course) and I would still be me. So who am I?
I am very loving, passionate and empathetic. I am also very stubborn and hard-headed. I fight for the things that I believe in and I don’t like to be wrong. I get bored easily and I love going on adventures. At my core I am an introvert. I enjoy being social but I need to have some me time in order to recharge. I am silly and weird and I like that about myself. I am not perfect and I like that too.
The bottom line is, I am more than what I do. And so are you!
Now I want to hear from you!
Tell me who you really are!
