Who Am I?

In Deepak Chopra's book, The Way of the Wizard, Twenty Spiritual Lessons for Creating the Life You Want, the wizard and Arthur ponder:

"Who am I? is the only question worth asking
and the only one never answered."

Since my late husband and I met while were mere teenagers and were inherently similar, as time went along, we became more so. When I was forced to confront the world by myself, I truly learned who I was -- and, surprisingly, it was someone quite different than I thought.

I came to realize that I had been carrying around old pictures of myself, which I needed to update in my mind as I took on new roles and became more independent. I attempted to let each new experience I encountered expand my consciousness and let me soar to new (and previously unknown) heights.

As I continue down my path, I am constantly asking myself the equivalent of the question: "What do I want to be when I grow up?"

I believe life is a quest to find out who you are, and we keep searching until we are no more.
