The exercise ended up being more difficult than I originally thought. I think it's probably because I'm in a weird season in my life, where I'm trying to redefine who I am (again.)
Now that I'm no longer working a 9-5 job, I've found myself floundering a little. I'm realizing now that my job defined how I viewed myself: I found a lot of worth in my title. And, now that it's gone, it's been really easy to get discouraged.
So, I'm learning that my identity can't be based on any external factors (my job, my education, my husband, this blog, my Etsy shop, or any other accomplishments.) If those fail me, what's left?
Currently, I'm not quite sure... but I'm bent on finding out. And I don't know about you, but I think that's a pretty good place to start.
