L. M. Montgomery said it best when she wrote
“There’s such a lot of different Anne’s in me. I sometimes think that’s why I’m such a troublesome person. If it was just the one Anne, it would be ever so much more comfortable , but then it wouldn’t be half so interesting.”
I feel like that often. There’s far too much packed into me.
So when it comes to these questions about who I am, it’s hard for me to answer. Because, I’m not quite sure. Who I am is constantly changing.
However, there are a few things I am sure of.
1. Jesus Christ is my passion. I love Him more than anything. He’s the sustainer of my life, the lover of my soul, and the daddy I never had.
2. Reading is my favorite pastime. Nothing will ever beat reading a wonderful book (with a strong female character) on top of a roof, as the summer sun slowly dwindles in the sky. That, right there, that’s my oasis. Perfection on earth. (So long as the mosquitoes and spiders stay away)
3. Creativity is a vital part of who I am. I must create in some facet. Whether I’m dreaming up stories, making pictures, or crocheting a scarf, my brain needs to tap into it’s artistic and creative side.
4. Our lives are far too fleeting to be spent doing something we hate.
“Oh, it’s delightful to have ambitions. I’m so glad I have such a lot. And there never seems to be any end to them — that’s the best of it. Just as soon as you attain to one ambition you see another one glittering higher up still. It does make life so interesting.” – L.M. Montgomery (Anne of Green Gables)
