It’s Sunday, time for the Outlander Question of the Week.
Today we are going to talk about who we are.
Claire was a healer. Being a nurse and a doctor wasn’t just what she did, it was who she was. She couldn’t walk away from someone who was hurting and not try to help them in some way. Healing people was a way of life for Claire, part of her being and her purpose in life.
Jamie was a leader of men. A protector, a warrior, a laird. He was the one upon whom all responsibility rested and he bore that responsibility with grace and passion. He couldn’t walk away from those in need of protection or comfort, even if they may not have been worthy of it. Remember when Alex Randall died? Who was it that walked Jack out of that room and gave him comfort?
So this week’s question is about what makes you YOU. Even if you’re not doing the thing you feel called to do, whether for financial reasons, or family obligations, or because, like me, you’re scared you’ll suck at it; what is your thing? What is the thing that you either long to do with your life because you feel you die if you don’t or that you are doing because you KNOW it’s who you are?
For me …it’s writing. My problem is that I’m so afraid I’ll fail, that I freeze up when trying. This year is going to be different for me though. I am a story teller and this year, I’m going to tell stories. If no one reads them or nothing comes of it, well then that’s what happens. But I AM going to tell stories.
So tell me, who are YOU? What were you born to do? If you’re not doing it, why not?
