We all have facets of our personalities. Some we might want to consider hiding from the world but that might be a different blog post…. Many of them overlap and I doubt any of us show them all and certainly not at the same time. Here are what my facets are:
MOMMY: I bake cookies, I kiss owies, I am a consummate pancake and cinnamon roll maker, I cuddle, my bed is the safest, warmest, most comfortable place on the planet, I go to field trips and award ceremonies, I teach how to ride a bike without training wheels, I’m there when life falls apart, I make my kids laugh, I sing and dance and I’m very silly, I will talk to you about anything regardless of how uncomfortable it makes me. I am honest, I am your biggest advocate and most militant enforcer.
FRIEND: I have a fierce loyalty, I swear like a truck driver, I am ballsy and a little perverse with a side of demented, I laugh a lot, I cry with you, I hug – a lot – I am willing to be vulnerable, I let you in, I am willing to show my softer side, I am a listener, I vent, I tell my secrets. I am thankful to have you.
WORK: Here I am more reserved, professional, but still want to show a little of my sass. I am there to make things better for you. I listen, I offer unsolicited advice, I hope I make your day better every time we have contact. I am enthusiastic, energetic and I really genuinely enjoy our time together.
SISTER: I love this woman more than I can express. The same love that I feel for my children. You either get it or you don’t but it’s overwhelming. I have no adequate words really. She’s the best gift I had as a child.
ATHLETE: I am competitive against myself, I have determination, drive and I love feeling strong, in good shape and healthy. Winning is always a goal but finishing is the main objective. Running and triathlons and doing weights is always a love/hate relationship but it’s also a life long habit. It’s an integral part of my life. I am focused, driven to be better, I push myself. I decompress and battle my inner demons. I am an example to my family.
RELATIONSHIP: I am most myself with the love of my life The good, bad and ugly, my best and worst, my most insecure and vulnerable, most loving, nurturing, I try to be a great communicator, listener, support. I show every facet to this man because he and I are the glue to our kids. In balancing, he is a priority. I am his biggest fan, biggest advocate, he is the one I want to continue dating, who holds me at night, who rally’s for me so I want to give him my all every day. I have respect, admiration and love for this man. He knows it all and as amazing as it sounds, he loves me in spite of that. He gets my kind of crazy. We cook together, do diet plans, grocery shop, work out together as often as possible, stress together and balance each other. We cheer each other on every single day.
What are your facets??? The floor is yours……
