It's hard not to shape our identity out of our circumstances.  Not to see ourselves as our profession, our address, our relationship status... Even harder not to shape our identity out of our experiences. Not to see ourselves as divorcee, adopted child, terminated employee, cancer survivor...

Because no mater how positively or negatively we feel about our circumstances or experience, none of that is actually who we are. There is something in the core of us that transcends all of that--the part of us that is shaped by what happens to us, but doesn't find its source in that.

We have the choice moment-by-moment to either wear our outward trappings of circumstance and experience, or live from the deeper part of our souls .

I want to focus on the deeper.
