Spoiler alert: it’s me.
I was walking to lunch just now. This morning I had a meeting with my boss, to do my review. It went pretty well.
I got into a talk with him about what matters to me, technically and professionally. That in turn got me thinking about who I am in the rest of my life.
A huge portion of who and what I am as a person is hinged upon exercising my creativity. Whether it’s writing code in my day job, writing fiction, creating podcasts, writing code for my business, I’m constantly making something from nothing.
Plus, a big part of my creative urge has to do with making the world a better place for those around me. I like problem solving, like providing support, solace, and comfort to others. Kindness is my default.
I see myself as one drop in a limitless ocean, which contains everyone and everything. I enjoy the effort to make that ocean a better place.
I’m grateful to be happy with who I am.
