I had an epiphany. A�After writing about an identity crisis and making bad decisions (which writing and publishing the blog turned out to be a bad decision in itself), I needed the light bulb moment that happened. A�It was this:

“I will always have an identity crisis when my identity is not rooted in something solid.”

This leads to the questions of, where am I finding my worth, value, and acceptance of myself?

You will experience the same crisis as me if we continually base our self worth on the external; A�using titles or status to create value.

“I am a flight attendant.” A�I am a writer and blogger. A�I am a gypsy. A�I am this…that…the other. A�Titles can describe me, but I should not let them define me. A�When I let external attributes define me, I will continually be rocked by waves of change, thrown again and again into an ocean of chaos whenever life doesn’t go quite right.

Everyday, I am learning.
