I am still discovering who I am. When my kids were at home my roles were well defined. I was a wife, mom and business owner. I took care of my family – I taught them, loved them, cleaned up after them and I went to work and took care of employees, customers, budgets, inventory and sales. Everything seemed so neat and tidy.
Then my kids left home, got married, had families and I closed my business during the economic downturn. All of the sudden my identity changed. I was still a mom, but I didn’t have much to do with the day to day lives of my kids, my house stayed pretty clean, there are only two of us home and we are pretty self-sufficient. I didn’t have employees to direct, manufacturers to talk to, sales to track or inventory to manage. So, who am I now? It’s been a journey to re-discover myself as an individual.
I also know who I am NOT. For instance, I know that I am NOT a quitter. That is a relief because I am trying to lose the pounds that I put on during the quarantine – and I know that I can do it because I am NOT a quitter.
I do know that I am visible, I have a voice, I have something valuable to offer. These are pieces of my identity that I am practicing. As I am practicing, I am discovering the visible Jennifer with a voice who has something valuable to offer. I am re-discovering myself as an adult with no kids at home.
I like the woman that I have become. She’s pretty amazing!
I like knowing who I am.
