I remember the first time I decided to intentionally change my identity. I was in a disastrous marriage and 40lbs over a healthy weight for my 5’3” frame.
I was unhappy with the way I physically looked and internally felt. So I started looking up workouts and healthy eating regimens. Then I started walking every day until my walk became a run. I made a decision that I wanted to be the type of woman that enjoyed running.
I joined a local running group in my community, started doing races on the weekend, going to run clinics, and buying runner’s apparel. Within months I started to really enjoy running and had met a whole new group of friends that loved running too.
More importantly, I lost weight and started to feel better from the inside out. My confidence increased and although I was still dealing with a difficult marriage, I found an experience that brought me joy.
I had officially changed my identity in one area of my life. I had become a RUNNER!
When I talk about the idea of changing your identity, I’m not talking about changing your name or going into witness protection.
I’m talking about getting clear on the type of person you wanted to be. In this context, changing your identity really is about adding another dimension to your persona and lifestyle.
Perhaps you always enjoyed art but never deep dived into the art world. Or maybe you always loved rock climbing but never gave it your full attention. Or maybe you always wanted to be a writer but instead went to school to be an accountant.
The bottom line is, it’s not too late to do what you love; what brings you joy; what make you smile. For some this may be expanding their life to fit in an extra curriculur activity.
For others (like me) it may mean completely changing your entire life and literally becoming a totally different person physically, mentally, and spiritually.
The change can be slow, fast, big or small, it’s completely up to you.
Creating a new identity is all about moving you closer to what makes you happier, more confident, more courageous and more creative.
