Who are you, and what have you done with… you?

So, you’re at work, or a play date for your kids, or a neighborhood get-together and someone asks you, “What do you do?”

If you’re like me, it changes based on context.
With other moms, I’m a stay at home mom of 4 girls. With special needs parents, I raise four kids, two with mood disorders and adoption attachment issues. With my husband, I’m short and spunky, with a dash of spaz. With friends, I fancy myself a comedian with a gentle side, who can sit and just let a friend BE in the middle of whatever life brings their way.

Sometimes in life I feel like a stage actress who has accidentally left part of one costume on as I move to a different scene in the play. Like the roles get mixed up and I start to forget who I am in the middle of it all.

A blog I love recently posted on Who I Used to Be. Dozens of people commented. Why? Because it’s hard to have to set aside things we’ve done before to do what we committed to right now.
