As humans, we are obliged to wear many hats and answer to many titles throughout our lifespans. In my own experience, I have answered to daughter, granddaughter, niece, wife, mother and aunt as well as graduate, Mrs., and manager. Other titles include Master Laundry Folder, Horn Honker, Dog Mom and the ever-elusive Kitchen Counter Sanitizer.
The real question, for me, is whether I can yet reinvent myself? I will not relinquish any of my current titles… each is dear to my heart, even the Kitchen Counter Sanitizer. But perhaps I could add to them: poet, wordsmith, speaker, or creative mind. I suppose it wouldn’t be a reinvention exactly. It would really be more of a journey to enhance myself with depth, culture, confidence, and words. Always words.
