You are who you Create
The realization that I create who I am was tremendous for me. Not only does it free me from this need to figure out who I am, but it also lets me plan and shape my future accordingly. What a novel idea, right? It's so simple that I'm actually a bit disappointed that I didn't figure this out sooner.
I have a new, refreshed purpose for my life now. I am no longer waiting for my "true form" to reveal itself, but rather I'm shaping my future by envisioning how I'd like that future to be. I'm embarking on a new quest for knowledge, something I had previously thought I had closed the door on permanently. This will take me on an entirely different path than the one I was on, and one I never would have envisioned just a few short months ago.
In essence, I am creating a new me. The core part of who I am will always be the same, but the rest of me is changing. It always was, honestly, I just couldn't see it for what it was. I am who I create and I am creating a me that I never could have envisioned.
To the future!
