Who are you?

Who are you?

Now, I’m not asking about your roles: mother, wife, employee, boss, daughter, cat lover/hater.

I’m asking who you really are, underneath all of the roles and masks.

If you had to describe yourself in 3 words, what words would you use? Yes, I know that you - you brilliant being - cannot be captured in 3 words. Forgive me for implying this. But for simplicity’s sake, what if we could choose our 3 words...and simply live by them?

I’ll give you an example. My three words, that I know I embody, are these:

  • Kind
  • Fun
  • No bullshit (that’s technically two words, but you know what I mean. I’m also a rule breaker.)

Now, when I remember to use these 3 words on a daily basis (values, qualities, or traits, or however you want to describe them), I live a good life.

  • Kind: I remember that even though I can be a dick (to myself and others), I am very kind...and I can always come back to this.
  • Fun: I realize that when life starts to drag and I’m not living fully, it’s likely because I’m not having enough fun. So I choose more fun.
  • No bullshit: I try to practice no bullshit in all of my communication. If I find myself asking for other people’s opinions, or humming & hawing over something? I cut the bullshit, I choose, I communicate. And I am so grateful when others around me to do the same.

When there is so much noise all around, coming back to these three words simplifies everything. And I think you'll probably agree that getting back to basics helps in this busy season. :)

Now I’d love to know: what are 3 words that you embody? 3 words that capture you?

Let me know in the comments below! Or send us an email! Or head on over to our Instagram or Facebook page, and leave a comment.

Once you know your three words (you can’t screw it up), you can write them on one of our blank decals (available in most decal packs!) as a way to remind you. Check mine out below, that I keep on my computer monitor! It’s super handy.

I’m super curious: who are you?

Love,

Amanda
