Many Hats – by David J Little

You can listen to an audio version of this article, look further down.
How do we see ourselves to others? Are we a Mom, a Dad, a man, a woman, a child or a sibling? Do we have a role in the workplace that defines who we are? These are Universal questions that we all ask ourselves at some point in our lives. My question to you is “Does that really matter?

If we see ourselves in a specific role or identity, then we tend to project that to the outside world. We all wear many hats in our daily lives parent, child, teacher, student, male, female, to name a few. We also wear an occupational hat that says” I’m a carpenter, nurse, doctor, teacher, fill in your own blank.” I know I’ve said this before, but how many times have you been at a social event and someone asks”What do you do?” You begin by giving a description of your job! That’s just a hat we wear, not a definition of who we are.

How about this? The next time someone asks you “What you do.”, describe all the wonderful, passionate things that fill your life with joy first and then you can tell them about your job. If you feel that way about your job and it fits into that category, then by all means include it.

My point is, you may be a gardener that loves plants or a singer who enjoys music, maybe even a writer who loves writing. (hint hint) The things that bring joy in your daily life, will give you the energy to fulfill you and make you happy. Maybe being a grandparent or an aunt or a volunteer at a soup kitchen helping others. Whatever it is that helps you to follow your bliss, wear that hat for yourself.

Here’s a quote that I love.

“You, a person with a vision, are like a pebble in the stream, moving ever outward to infinity, impacting all who come in contact with the ripple.”
~Dr.Wayne Dyer~

So, put on your YOU hat and start that ripple effect. How wonderful would that be?
