QUOTE OF THE DAY: You're only given a little spark of madness. You mustn't lose it. ~Robin Williams
The other day someone asked me what I did. Generally, when someone asks that question, you usually reply with what you do to generate income, right? Well, I could have numerous different answers. I make my income in several different ways, but I am so much more than that. I am more than a business owner or an employee. So I made a list. The I AM list.
A Christian, Period.
A Mother (of 2, which automatically adds titles including but not limited to: Chauffeur, Tutor, Secretary, Nurse, Advisor, Counselor, Warden, Coach, Maid, Cook, Event Planner, Bodyguard, Financial Advisor, Referee, Judge, Lawyer, Cheerleader)
A Significant Other (similar to that of Wife, without the paperwork and although I hate the title, it sounds better than girlfriend. When I say I'm his girlfriend, that seems so, I don't know, high school I suppose :))
An Ex-Wife (while minor children are involved, this title holds significance simply because it consumes portions of my week)
A Business Owner
An Independent Employee
A Co-Organizer for NoCo Writer's Group
A School Volunteer
A 4-H Leader
A Coach (well, I was for two years at least, and not because of experience, but because of necessity)
And then I let out a big sigh because just reading the list exhausts me. Oh, but otherwise life would be boring!
So tell me, what hats do you wear? When someone asks you what do you do, how do you answer?
