And Then She Asked – Who Are You?

Hello My Name Is Joshua!

She wasn’t a stranger. It wasn’t a blind date. It was just conversation in a small group of friends that led to the honest and simple question, who are you?

The problem is, it wasn’t a simple question. It’s been well over a week since it was posed and I’m still sitting here thinking about it.

Who am I?

I looked at my bios online. They are short, pretty nondescript and aimed at getting people to want to know more. And that’s where we are now. Wondering what the more is.

So, here and now I’m going to try my best to explain who I am in my own words.

I’m a guy that has lived out in the country, in small towns, medium sized cities and major city centres. I do my best to combine my experiences of community and charity as I do my current living in Toronto.

I’m a thinker. At least I try to be. There are constantly things firing off in my brain, some useful, some useless and some harmful. Regardless, it is rarely quiet in here.

I try to be a giver. Charity is very close to my heart and I do my very best to spread the word when I find a good cause. It makes me happy to bring smiles to faces whenever and however I can.

I am the oldest child in a blended, extended, mixed up family. It may be part of why I am always worried that I’m behind in my life. It may be why I want to be successful. It may be the reason for a lot of things. But is also what has allowed me to watch a pretty great group of kids grow up into adults that have a lot to offer to the world.

I can be insecure, jealous, thoughtless, careless and selfish. I’m not proud of it. When I realize it I’m often hard on myself because of it. But it happens. It’s part of me.

I’m a people person. I have deep curiosities about people and how they work in groups and as individuals. I love to be with people whether it’s one at a time or in a larger group of friends. I love chatting and listening and learning. But I can also be quiet and shy when I’m not sure how to make my opening or if I am worried about finding my common ground.

In the end I guess I am a lot of things. We all are. I’m sure that many of you reading this wouldn’t have much trouble coming up with your own descriptions of me that are easier to read and understand. Feel free to pass them among the world as needed.

I hope I’ve done a little bit to answer her question.

Happy Tuesday. Stay Awesome.
