Who we are becoming

Who we are becoming is more important than who we have been. It is the process of becoming that makes us who we are. This idea inspires me to let each day be a fresh opportunity for me to be the person I want to be. Someone I’m proud of. Sometimes that means showing up to create even if I am not feeling it or even if the final product isn’t what I want it to be. In the end, I’m still someone who showed up to create today rather than sit this one out. And that is someone who I want to be. (Also, I know and cringe at writing this as “who” instead of “whom,” but “who” sounds so weird, doesn’t it?!)
