Who am I and what am I here to do?

 

This season every title of the QBR interviews will double up as a journal prompt for our community's exploration. This week's prompt is brought to us by my conversation with Caty Pasternak.

For me, right now, this is who I am and what am I here to do...

Today's prompt feels rather loaded and with reason. The idea of exploring who I am and what I've come here to do, is something I've thought about my entire life. 

Today I am....

I am a child of the cosmos, so acutely aware of how important and unimportant I am as being of this planet. I am taking care of myself in a new way because I feel things in a very deep way and if I don't focus on the good in the world, I easily become overwhelmed by it's troubles. 

I am a dreamer who believes in the potential of the human heart. I am a woman trying to navigate what it means to create, connect, consume and care in a way that allows me to feel like I am doing something with my life, without getting so busy that I miss out on what really matters. And sometimes I forget and I am unable to tell the difference.

Today I am here to ...

Forgive myself for the unconscious decisions I made before remembering my true nature. I am here to let myself be seen, without letting my fears keep me from standing in my light and living out my truth. I am here to try, over and over, for the rest of my life, to show up for my desires. As they stand true today and as they evolve. I am here to be human, to make mistakes and find my way.
