IDENTITY 101

Do you remember what you wanted to be when you grew up? Or, maybe even, who?

Very often, the eyes of a child or a teen are wide open to the possibilities that inspire and intrigue. What they see is an opportunity to do something that just fits who they are. 

On the other hand, you may be among those who weren't quite sure what fit.  Influences of parents, extended family, teachers, all may have offered suggestions either leaving you overwhelmed, or just plain confused.  A rule of thumb I have used in counseling young adults who were still looking for a fit was that the average young adult has tried three to five different careers by the time they were 25 years old. This openness encourages you to try numerous jobs to see what fits. And while trying, definitely try on the jobs that interest you. Don't just settle for whatever comes along.  

Identity is a major factor in any area of life satisfaction. 

And the expression of our identity and our innate qualities is found where it resonates in our very being. Whether career, education, partner, geographical climate, or spiritual community, each factor is an indication of how much or how little we have chosen from the Core of our being. The values we live by, the characteristics we show to those we consider important in our lives reflect who and how we wish to be known.

Our objective through this website is to invite you to examine your life and the degree to which you manifest — incidentally or intentionally — who you really are. Throughout the site, you will find ideas for growth and fulfillment to live from your Core Identity

If you experienced assault on who you are – either in childhood or during your adult years, to the extent you have lost perspective on who you really are – please know there is hope for healing and restoration so that you can once again live life from your Core Self.
