Who am I?

A big question that I already cannot answer. When someone says ‘just be yourself’ I wonder what it is exactly because that sense of myself is really not set. I cannot define it in a way that truly fits me. To my children I am this, to my parents that, to my friends another and so it goes on. (Who am I to myself?) What I do know is that when I am creating a mandala I am connected to myself. Being connected may not define me but I feel the process is about being with me and getting to ‘know me’. Like layers of feelings my self unravels, expresses, is alive - an ongoing realisation. Nothing earth shattering, just layer by layer connecting and trusting the process.
