For those of you that have not yet read or watched "Eat, Pray, Love," there was a point in the story in which the topic of conversation turned to what one word defines certain cities - for instance, New York was 'Ambition", London was "Stuffy", and Rome was "Sex". The one word definition was then given as a personal challenge - how would you define yourself in one word?
What I found most interesting about this question was how difficult people found it to define themselves by something other than what they did. If people could pick a label, that was their answer.
So often we lose sight of ourselves - our wants, our desires, our needs and we get really good at defining ourselves by our jobs, our relationships, and our families or friends. But, it's important to take a moment and think about who we are - not just what we do, or mean to someone else because if we're always defining ourselves by everything but, how will we know what we want and what to do to get there?
So, who are you? What one word would you use to define yourself? Do you know?
