Tell me about yourself? Who are you?
This time of year, with holiday parties and end of year events you more than likely will be asked in one way or another. How do you explain who you are?

So, who are you?
This time of year it is important to take a moment and reflect. Affirm that you are so much more than anything that is outside of you.

Have you heard the saying “you are not your body, you have a body?” Or “You are a soul having a human experience.” This season take a moment to separate yourself from all that is defining you and connect with yourself.
You are light; you are that which you are.
Know yourself – have peace and take to heart that no matter what happens to you, or around you, you will always be you.
