Those of you who know me, or have read my About Me page, know that the name of this blog (The Patchwork Fox) does actually have a meaning to me.
The Fox part is obvious (being my name), but the patchwork part is more about how I see myself. I’ve spent a long time trying to define myself as a single entity under a single word. However, over the past year or so, I’ve come to realise that that is impossible.
I now see myself like a patchwork quilt. Lots of different coloured and patterned patches, stitched together to make up Me.
The patches might not match, they might look a bit dishevelled, but at the end of the day, all the patches come together and make a perfectly acceptable quilt. Plus, my quilt can have new and different patches added to it over time. My potential has no expiration date.
I am a full and complete person, made up of lots of different things. No one single label can define me. And that’s okay.
How do you define yourself? What sort of things are on your “patches”? Let me know in the comments!
