When I contemplated describing myself to potentially millions of people, (optimistic or delusional?) the image of a kaleidoscope came to me.
According to Wikipedia, A kaleidoscope is a cylinder with mirrors containing loose, colored objects such as beads or pebbles and bits of glass. As the viewer looks into one end, light entering the other creates a colorful pattern, due to the reflection off of the mirrors. Coined in 1817 by Scottish inventor Sir David Brewster,“kaleidoscope” is derived from the Ancient Greekκαλός (kalos), “beautiful, beauty”,εἶδος (eidos), “that which is seen: form, shape” and σκοπέω (skopeō), “to look to, to examine”, hence “observer of beautiful forms.” 
I really resonate with the final phrase : observer of beautiful forms, particularly since these forms are created by light. I would absolutely define myself as someone who is continually finding joy in the reflection of the light. This joy is manifested by an incredible array of forms: painting, photography, architecture, poetry, meditation, song, sculpture, nature. Light is energy and energy is how love is transmitted.
So the kaleidoscope serves as a powerful symbol of my current purpose and identity. I also prefer to view my Self as an energetic being who can be linked with what I value and what brings me joy.
What I Value Most: love, truth, integrity, beauty, compassion, honesty, wisdom, creativity, clarity, light, life
