5 Minute Friday: Identity…

Everyone has one.  Most people don’t think about it.  Everyone should.  Each person has multiple identities based on where we are in our lives and what we have done in the past. 

As a professional in the world you have created an identity for yourself.  People know you by the way you carry yourself, perform your job, and the things you say.

In your personal life you are identified by the family and friends you have.  The interest you pursue and the decisions you make.

These days you also have an online identity that is the culmination of all things you have ever done or said on the internet.  Some things are kept private while others are made public. 

It is important to take some time out of our lives to think about how people in the world see us and how we want to be seen.  Choosing to make decisions that help to identify who we are and strengthen who we want to be. 

I identify myself as mother, wife, software professional, and wannabe yogi.
