“Tell me a little bit about yourself”
This question disguised as a statement always made me a little sick at my stomach. The response from me always had to change depending on my audience. Well, today I lay all masks at the door step and unveil the authentic self. People say what do you ‘do’? The answer is usually a cookie cutter response of a career choice, housewife, student, etc… So many years I have tossed the idea around in my head. What am I about? What is my thing? What do I do? Seems I was always waiting for what I was going to do when I grow up. Along the way, I found myself identified as a member of the US Air Force, and after that various administrative positions that were mostly some form of ‘secretary’ or ‘assistant’. In between all that I worked a variety of service jobs, fast food, and so forth. Everything I did had it’s own elements of love/hate relating, so why bore you with details? It is only NOW that I can tell you …a little bit about …myself. In all that flipping and flopping around thinking that some job, or person, or place would define me, I have come to know that who I am is just that–I AM.
