I am…

Who am I?

I am a nobody. I have accomplished nothing to be lauded in textbooks or magazines. I have a sphere of influence no larger than the person next door. Many people who know my face are completely unaware of my name. I am a drop in the ocean. I am forgettable.

Who am I?

I am a friend. I smile at people when I make eye contact. I hurt when others are hurting. I offer advice to those who seek it, and a listening ear to those who need it. I help people feel valuable, whether I see them once or a thousand times. I am appreciated.

Who am I?

I am a comedian. I make people laugh, and thrive on the attention lavished upon me by a group of people. I strive to hone my wit, and to know my audience. When people aren’t quick to enjoy my humor, I laugh at myself. I crack myself up. I am funny.

Who am I?

I am a thinker. I spend most of my time pondering things of importance and things that don’t matter. I dream, I hope, I philosophize, I wonder. I speak introspectively about my feelings, and I pick at my brain until I understand myself well enough to explain to others. I am deep.

Who am I?

I am a ripple. I read books to improve myself. I write to share, to understand, to hold myself accountable. I seek to influence others by example to change and grow inside, to change their lives and thereby change the world. I won’t stop growing until I am the best person I can be, and until I have helped change the lives of every person I have come into contact with. I am part of a rising tide of leaders, movers and shakers. I am revolutionary.
