We are all “works in progress” attempting to map out a meaningful life on a large canvas of opportunities. Intentional living requires an awakening of the self and an opportunity to rediscover “who you are.” Our identity is ultimately our sense of self across time, and therefore, identity work requires an exploration of your story which includes the past, present and future. Research confirms that when we understand “who we are” we can align our decisions and choices with our core values and beliefs. In doing so, we mobilize our best possible selves in pursuit of the image we hold of who we want to be. This work requires exploration of our family or origin, our values and beliefs, aspects of self-continuity, and the exciting work of future thinking.
