We like to get the answer to the question ‘What am I ?’

It’s a loaded question. And the answer changes from time to time.

What I thought I was at 15, was a laughable stock when I was 25. And at 35, I am struggling to define what I would be.

Then I realise, rather than looking for a definite answer for What I want to be, I can easily find answers for ‘what am I not?’

What am I not?

The answers to this question validates my values. When I peel away the things I don’t want to be, I am getting closer to What I want to be.

It’s easier and clarifying.
