We’re healthiest when we view our sense of self as an ongoing journey–something that unfolds as we step out of our comfort zones and have new experiences. Who we see ourselves as isn’t cast in concrete, never to change. Of course there may be attributes or characteristics that we choose to keep the same, such as deciding that we’ll always have blond or auburn hair, but most other things about ourselves will change to a degree.
This is a good thing!
This is what enriches our lives and it also gives us the flexibility to successfully weather the challenges that Life throws our way.
Add this thought–keeping our senses of self fluid–into the mix as you’re thinking this week about who you are.
