Or WHO defines you?
Do you give that power to others?
I am defined by my roles in this world.
I am mom, wife, daughter, sister etc.
I am defined by the things I choose to hold close to my heart.
I am Catholic.
I am a homeschooler.
I am a business person.
I am a thriver.
There are times when others try to define me.
If I went by what others say though…
I mean seriously, I’d be defined by others bad hair days.
I will not be defined by others.
I will not be defined by my children, on their bad hair days.
“You are the worst mommy in the world!”
I will not be defined by mistakes I’ve made.
I will not be defined by others opinion of how I should be living my life.
I will also not be defined by moments in time.
There was a time when I lived as if I were 100.
I could not move.
I could not function.
I was napping constantly.
I was not teaching my children as I should have been.
I was depressed.
I was disgusted.
And in one decision I was able to change that.
Because I did not let what was happening to me in that moment define who I was at my core.
And I believe that it was because of that one moment in time,
that I am more capable of helping others change the definition of how they live their lives.
My story… is inspiring.
My story… is unique.
My story… is ever changing.
Because I have chosen to define my life on my terms.
You define your own life. Don’t let other people write your script.
