“who are you

you are not a name
or a height, or a weight
or a gender
you are not an age
and you are not where you are from

you are your favorite books
and the songs stuck in your head
you are your thoughts
and what you eat for breakfast
on Saturday mornings

you are a thousand things
but everyone chooses
to see the million things
you are not

you are not
where you are from
you are
where you are going
and i'd like
to go there

“The first question she was asked was What do you do? as if that were enough to define you. Nobody ever asked you who you really were, because that changed.

You might wond one day and heal the next.”
Jodi Picoult, Nineteen Minutes

“You are not who you think you are. You are not your fears, your thoughts, or your body. You are not your insecurities, your career, or your memories. You're not what you're criticized for and you're not what you're praised for. You are a boundless wealth of potential. You are everything that's ever been. Don't sell yourself short. Every sunset, every mountain, every river, every passionate crowd, every concert, every drop of rain - that's you. So go find yourself. Go find your strength, find your beauty, find your purpose. Stop crafting your mask. Stop hiding. Stop lying to yourself and letting people lie to you. You're not lacking in anything except awareness. Everything you've ever wanted is already there, awaiting your attention, awaiting your time.”
Vironika Tugaleva

Vironika Tugaleva

Tim Crawshaw
“The world put's too much emphasis on what a person does in terms of monetary value and social status as opposed to who they are. If I was to ask you if you would be loved for who you are or what you do (eg. your occupation), I would guess that you would say who you are. Things are the wrong way around unless you follow Jesus.

God cares about who we are primarily, not what we do. It is our character and approach to life that he cares about. God wants us to choose him and put him first which ultimately means being a servant to him and others.”
Tim Crawshaw

Nicholas Kaufmann
“What matters isn't what you are, it's who you are, right now, in this moment. What matters are the choices we make. That's what defines us. Nothing else.”
Nicholas Kaufmann, Dying Is My Business

Johnny Rich, The Human Script

Vironika Tugaleva
“The closer you come to your authentic self, the simpler everything becomes. Listen to your intuition. It will tell you who you are.”
Vironika Tugaleva

“Do not let go of your right to make your own decisions, because by doing so you are letting go of who you really are.”
Sameh Elsayed

Vironika Tugaleva
“Don't let what you thought you were yesterday keep you from becoming what you're meant to be today.”
