I would like to think of myself as a reader, mostly because when I do read, it’s really enjoable for me and I look forward to the next book I manage to get my hands on. But I admit I dont read as often as I would like to, there just isn’t enough time in my day sometimes to get my read on.
I would also like to think of myself as a writer, again, because I love to write, it’s something I actually enjoy doing. Always have and probably always will. As long as I’m writing from my heart and its not fake, I’m happy.
But is this who I am? or is it what I enjoy doing? So who am I exactly and what makes me , me? Well my Name is Tammy-Lynn Murphy, is this WHO I am though? Perfect fountain Potato is the first direct transalation I ever recieved of my name hahaha apparently Murphy means potato 🙂 which I find hilarious. It also means ‘Sea Warrior” which I absloutely love. I do believe our names attach themselves to our being somehow which is why back in biblical times names were changed according to purpose. I love the idea of me being my name because this means that at any given time I can change who I am if I dont like it, just like how I can change my name.
My name seems to have grown in meanings since my first google attempt many many moons ago. It has moved from Perfect fountain potato sea warrior to Gift of God, palm tree, twin, perfection, hello waterfall, rescued by God, Giver of life, joy sea warrior potato! Guess what? I absolutely love it! All of them make me happy to be named Tammy-Lynn Murphy. If this is who my name calls me to be then so be it because potatoes are amazing lets be real, and so are palm trees, If I could place an emoji right in here, it would be a grinning face emoji 🙂
We really are a combination of so many things, and who we actually become is based on what we choose to focus on. What parts of us we choose to grow and feed will become dominant, but it doesn’t mean the other parts of us completely die off. They are still there, in the background waiting to be fed or noticed or even given a chance to thrive.
So who am I right now? I am so many things , I am the keeper of my soul, the mother of Taelyn, the kindness in my heart, I am the bearer of pain, but also the overcomer of challenges, I am a healer, a teacher, a warrior, I am a daughter, an aunt, a friend to many, I am love, I am light, I am joy, I am peace, I am whoever I decide I am at any given point in my life. If I dont like me at any moment I can change. This is the key to this post. Knowing that you are not stuck in any role, you are who you decide to be at any given moment and nobody can change that unless you let them.
You are in charge of you, you decide what you are going to believe, you make the ultimate choice in the end. Remember choosing to follow is a choice, Listening is a choice, believing is a choice.
Make the right choices for you. Take the time to listen to your heart and follow what your built in guide tells you. Be the best version of you that you can possibly be.
Love and Light
