Tough to answer such a tiny question!
I am immediately compelled to use labels. People understand labels. They’re expected. I have a hard time coming up with just one or two though, because there are so many things I identify with. Living life is so much more complex than one or two individual attributes, interests, or occupations.
Labels are incredibly limiting. They are words meant to ascertain specific, minimized evaluations of aspects too broad to be dissected; aspects physic and psychic. As evaluations, they are naturally restrictive to only those attributes by which they are measured. But I’m rambling…
So I will try to express who I am without traditional labels. I am interested. I find beauty. I work to be a better human being. I love. I hate. I understand. I lift up, rather than drag down. I forgive. I create. I hope to inspire. I live fully and passionately. I am thoughtful and contemplative. I appreciate life. I learn constantly. I recognize the value of others. I want to connect. I adore my family. I intend kindness. I wish to be useful.
I want to share what I have to give.
I heard Maya Angelou say once, “If you learn, teach. If you receive, give.”
Amen sister…Rock on…
