Self reinvention

My latest blogging task is self reinvention.


“verb (used with object)


to invent again or anew, especially without knowing that the invention already exists.

to remake or make over, as in a different form: At 60, he reinvented himself as a volunteer. We have an opportunity to reinvent government.

to bring back; revive: to reinvent trust and accountability.”

I’m not 60, do I need more time to invent myself for the 1st time before I start reinventing myself?

So why don’t I write for now about definition of one’s self.

We start to gain Definition as soon as we are a Zygote, who we are starts to be defined. At what point do we play a role in the definition of ourself?I would say quite early, even from the start but to a gradually varying degree. Throughout our life we continue to define ourself and even redefine ourself, but reinvention suggests more of a complete transformation. What about when one becomes a Christian, is that reinvention rather than just redefinition? in that our old self dies and we are born again I guess so, but the transformation is still a process, (you know, all that salvation-sanctification-glorification stuff).
