The Roles we Play

We are all busy – we may be different kinds of busy, but we are busy nonetheless.  We constantly have demands placed on us that may divert our attention away from taking care of ourselves.  Each of us have different demands – I know that I am:

  • A wife
  • A mother
  • A friend
  • A sister
  • A daughter
  • A Student
  • An Employee
  • A Boss

In addition, while not ‘professionally trained’ I also play the roles of:

  • Baker
  • Banker
  • Barber
  • Caregiver
  • Chauffeur
  • Chef/ Dietician
  • Coach
  • Counselor
  • Diplomat
  • Disciplinarian
  • Doctor/ Nurse
  • Educator
  • Fashion Director
  • Gardener
  • Historian
  • Interior Designer
  • Janitor
  • Launderer
  • Maid
  • Mechanic
  • Moderator
  • Motivator
  • Negotiator
  • Party Planner/Coordinator
  • Personal Shopper
  • Pest Exterminator
  • Photographer
  • Praise giver
  • Referee
  • Role Model
  • Sanitation Engineer
  • Seamstress
  • Secretary
  • Super Hero
  • Teacher

Once I was reminded that if I don’t take care of myself, I’m no good to anyone else.  So I’d like to remind you to take a few minutes out of each and every day to be YOU.

So my question to YOU –

What roles do you play that I missed?

What are you going to do today to nurture YOURSELF?
