What is our identity?

The word ‘identity’ derives from the Latin words ‘essentitas’, which means being, and ‘identidem’, which means repeatedly.

Our identity is merely how we show up consistently. It is that which we do day-in and day-out.

There is nothing fixed about our identity. If we wish to change our identity, we merely need to act differently – today, tomorrow, and for long enough that we are no longer in doubt.
