Who do you want to be?

This is always the question growing up…

Who do you want to be?

When faced with this question, we deduce that right now, we aren’t enough. So we have to choose what we want to be so we can become that.

As well-intended as this question is, I really wish the world would have framed it differently for me. Something like…

You are complete, although you can’t help but learn and grow. Now, what do you want to do with that?

This tells me that it’s all play. It tells me that the unknowns will slowly become knowns over time — naturally. It keeps fear out of the driver’s seat and puts creation in charge.

So let’s try it…

You are enough. You are whole. You are complete. Your spirit wants to fly.

Now what?
