“So what defines you?”
Someone asked me this question today in the context of a getting-to-know-you conversation, skipping right past all of the usual what-do-you-do, where-are-you-from, what-are-your-hobbies kind of questions right to this one. It made me stop and think.
What does define me? I don’t think anyone has ever asked me that before.
“Your sacred space is where you can find yourself again and again.” ~Joseph Campbell
Perhaps this is why I feel so lost. I do not have a sacred space at the moment. The closest thing I have is a walk in the woods a various state parks, but those are all a drive away and not a place I get to visit frequently – especially this time of year! Having wandered away from the religion of my youth, I do not have a sacred space in the form of a church, temple, or synagogue. I long to create a sacred space in my home but have not yet reached the point where I am comfortable doing so with others in the house who will not understand my current journey.
