Who Are You? Get to Know Yourself Again

March 22, 2021

Who Are You Now?

Have you been wondering who you’ve become? Have you been thinking that you aren’t sure who you are now that you’re married, a mom with little children, divorced, moving up the ladder in your career, on an island starting your own business, or a mom of older, more independent children? Keep reading to learn how to reconnect with and get to know yourself again.

We Are More Than Our Roles

Our roles can seem like they define us and put us in a box.  Then we’re left wondering what happened to the adventurous, free-spirited, fun women we used to be. 

Sometimes when I play with my daughter, have an unexpected date night with my husband, travel far away, or have a girls’ weekend away, I feel like my younger, more carefree self. 

It’s liberating and so fun.

But then I’m left wondering who I am now. 

Don’t get me wrong.  I absolutely love my life!  But I have changed in so many ways. And I think it’s easy to get caught up in our everyday obligations and lose our connection to who we are at our core. 

Getting to Know Yourself Now

If you’re wanting to get to know yourself again, take some time to do just that. 

Six Simple Ways to Connect With Yourself Again

Here are six simple ways to reconnect with and begin the process of getting to know yourself again.

  1. Go on a weekend getaway alone.  You choose where you want to go, you choose the itinerary, and you choose every last detail of how you spend your time.
  2. Spend some time journaling each day.  Pay attention to your thoughts.  What are you thinking?  Are your thoughts true?  Are they helping you?  Do you want to change them?  What do you want to think instead?
  3. Do something you want to do this week.   Spend 30 minutes reading, making your favorite meal, meditating, or taking a bath.  However you spend those 30 minutes doesn’t matter, as long as it’s your idea.
  4. Get together with your friends for dinner.  Schedule a night out with your girlfriends to catch up on what’s happening in each other’s lives, help each other through anything you all might be struggling with right now, and laugh together.
  5. Have a date night with your hubby or go on a date if you’re single.  Get a babysitter and you choose where you’d like to go and what you’d like to do.  Try not to talk about the kids. 
  6. Have your household take a break from technology for a night or for the weekend.  Be present with yourself and your family without the distractions that technology inevitably brings.

Notice What You Enjoy

As you do these things, get curious about what you like.  Notice what fills you up and makes you feel energized.  Notice what you’d like to do again.  Pay attention to yourself and what you’re thinking and feeling.  This is a simple way to reconnect with and get to know yourself again.
