What Defines You?

 What defines you?

Is it the car that you drive, the clothes that you wear, the location that you stay? Let's strip that back…Is it your marital status? How many children you have, or who your parents are? Let’s strip that back too.

At times these labels and identities can take us away from the core of who we are, stripping back, without our environmental factors can help us identify how we see ourselves – not as how others see us.

Through this process we may become critical with mistakes that we’ve made, our visual flaws and limitations that we have, our negative self-talk kicks in also known as limiting beliefs.  Messages that we say to ourselves ‘I’ve struggled all my life', or ‘I can’t get anything right’ or ‘I’m worthless’ sabotage our growth, these mental scars last far longer than physical scars.

Alex Carberry

How do you know when a book is a real gem?

Its beauty, knowledge, connection to your innate qualities radiate spiritually and physically.

As a mother, simply when your child says "can I read that book?"

This is one of those books.

Taken from Sufi traditions, the wisdom of Sufi masters put in plain and simple, easy to read. I devoured it in one short sitting.

I remember years ago, asking a friend, "If you were a season, which one would you be and why?" I knew my answer. 

This book confirmed it as I sniggered and gasped throughout when I recognized myself, my children, my friends, and even my colleague's personality type or temperament.
