Who are you if your titles are stripped away?
Something that I've been thinking about is this..
If I am not a mom... who am I?
If I am not a wife... who am I?
If I'm not a doula... who am I?
What is left after all of these things are pulled away?
Is there anything left? Is there still someone worth fighting for? Do I still know who this person is?
When all of my titles are stripped away... the person... the entity still remaining is a woman, someone spiritual, someone who craves laughing at hard that it hurts, who craves good food, warms and sunshine on every inch on me, who craves a visually appealing atmosphere, dancing and movements that keeps me in the present moment, who craves water and new experiences and deep conversations.
So yes, a person still exists underneath all of those titles. This person can't be all of those titles and still be happy and fulfilled and give back without feeling empty IF the base, the root of who she is is forgotten about... left to dry out.
