Who Am I?







I was really inspired by Kyla's recent post, about some of the struggles she's been going through with self confidence and social anxiety, and that journey to finding out who she is and accepting the answers she finds.

 As of today I would describe myself as an introvert/hermit, socially uncomfortable wreck, unmotivated in every regard, with my mind on my money and my money on my mind.

Obviously that's quite a list of things to work on.
I also have a lot of qualities that I love:

I am extremely curious about the world around me and how everything works. I was that kid who always asked a million questions, like 'what's my shadow made of?'.

I am a big encourager, and always try to encourage the people I love to reach their dreams, and try to help them in any way I can.

I carry with me a huge sense of hope and faith. Hope in the future; faith that everything will work out as it's meant to be, and that God is watching over me, and helping me to follow my path through the struggles. Sometimes I might feel alone, but in my heart, I know that I'm not.

I have a huge creative spark. When I'm feeling creative it's like a big burst of incredible energy - something like a manic high, I'd imagine - and I just feel incredibly overwhelmed and passionate, like I must create RIGHT NOW. It's an amazing feeling... truly what life is all about.

So right now this is me.

Who are you?

  2. What a great post! I'll be sure to write something up and leave a comment with a link when I'm done :)

    I think you are a wonderful person! I share some common traits, the hermit part for one! But I think your creativity is motivation. Maybe you could do with motivation elsewhere. But maybe it's not what the Universe has planned for you? Your faith will see you through, I'm pretty confident.

    And did I mention on your journal post with that photoshoot that you are GORGEOUS! And very talented with makeup? No? Well, I've sorted that out now, haven't I? :P

    Chin up! I'm cheering you on, as I'm sure are many other people! :D

      Aww well thanx ^////^ *blushes* I had a lot of fun doing the makeup. I can't wait to try a new design hehe. I should also be getting henna tattoo stuff in the mail soon, and am excited to try out some designs. XD

      <3 I appreciate your kind words Lauren! <3

  3. I'm so glad that this sparked some reflection in you, and that you're standing firm on all the beautiful things that make you YOU! I love that you're the kind of kid who wanted to know what your shadow was made of- that's exactly how my mind works too, it sees magic in all kinds of places :)

    Keep on being yourself and stretching yourself in small ways- if you just keep going, who knows what wonderful place you'll end up in!

  4. I never would have thought you were an introvert Sasha... I was extremely shy and alone when I was younger too... it was only when I was about 26 or so that I made a conscious effort to come out of my shell. I am such an extrovert now, I can talk to anyone, anytime now and I can talk to a large crowd of people with no fear... okay a little... but really nothing to worry about. I have a loud and memorable laugh that comes out spontaneously. I am tenacious, funny, creative with writing and I care so much about the people in my life.

    I sometimes care too much and people have hurt me without even knowing it but I truly love and forgive them. Sometimes not immediately but I always find a way:)

    Thank Sasha, I think this was a wonderful idea of yours and I am glad I had a chance to read about you, you are so creative... I adore seeing what you make and draw with your own two hands... everything is so beautiful:)

    1. Oh ho ho - I am a major introvert. :P

      I try to be outgoing and stuff, but it's really, really draining. I also prefer one on one chats over group outings. I like really connecting with a person on an individual level, and putting my energy into our conversation/friendship.

      Uh oh! I'm going to be 26 next month! Maybe my introvert ways will change? Doubtful haha! Hopefully my agoraphobia improves some. I'm surprised to hear you were shy! I always think of you as so open and outgoing. ^_^ I have the same problem about caring too much and getting hurt, so admittedly, I'm kind of shelled up right now... but when I'm ready I'll poke my head out ;)

      I always love reading your comments Launna! Thanks for taking the time to write such a lovely response. :) *hugs*
