Who we are isn’t what we do

“I’m not a writer.” So we ignore all the opportunities to be a writer.

“I’m not a rock climber.” As a result we don’t take a class or join a gym.

The opportunities to invent yourself are everywhere. More than we could ever fully capitalize on.

So many possibilities are flying by, it’s easy to turn around and say, “That isn’t me.” But when we do something new for the first time, we might just change the fabric of who we are.

We are not our work (or our job or resume). Who we are isn’t what we do but what we do can sometimes change who we are–if we let it.
