Maybe the question should be, “who do I want to be today?” Either way I know I have a choice. At this very moment, I want to be a creative and humorous writer as I finish this post and move on to another.
Let’s talk about how we define ourselves. Years ago in a Sunday School class, we were taught to say it this way. I am a Christian, a wife, a mother. I am still all of those things, just have changed the order and importance of the terms. What I am not is RA and OA, although I have those. I am me-MissDazey, aka Daisy, aka Linda, who is also wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. (And a quiet Christian) I am finding I like being a blogger, writer, and twitterer. I don’t like being a facebooker..is that a word?
I have never been a housewife. Oh, I was supposed to be one, just didn’t do it. I have been an employer and employee, business owner, and now a retiree. I dream of being a published author and have an online business. Today I am happy, silly, need a nap type of person.
PS: I am going to reopen a blog I started a year ago for Seniors. I’ll post a note here later this week about it.
