Chapter Two: Label Me
In our society we're often told it's wrong to put labels on people and ourselves, but I want to be labeled! Not labeled in a judgmental sort of way, but labeled as in "defined". My first obvious label is woman or wife, but what kind of woman or wife am I? Am I a brave woman or am I reserved and introverted? Maybe I am both depending on the situation I'm in. Am I a spiritual woman? What does it mean to be a spiritual person anyway? Do spiritual people only attend church and pray, or can I find spirituality in other non-conventional ways such as; travel, reading, meeting new people, being in nature, meditation, etc. I feel by answering these kinds of questions about myself, I'm in turn defining myself!
