This post is a bit random I suppose, but then that’s who I am. I used to describe my self as a multifaceted diamond, not because of my sparkle, but because of the many faces I have. I used to fight against being pigeon holed, being one person, the person everybody knew and knew what to expect. That is not who I am. I can be a loner, I like my own company, and am content in that company. I can be the party animal, I love to go out, get dressed up and meet people. I am a professional, wearing suits and smart clothes for work, planning what I want to achieve and how to go about it. Mum to two great children, well adults now, but still my babies. I consider my self to be a loyal friend and there are many other sides to me as well. The clothes I wear do not define me either. I wear the clothes I want to wear that suit my mood or my role of the day.
I am not what it says on the tin.
Years ago I thought it was just me as everyone I met seemed to the same all the time, but this idea changed as I got older and realised that people were the same in the same environment. Every one is a multifaceted diamond.
So next time you talk to the woman in the supermarket, the teachers or the bank manager remember that they too have a life outside work and may be suffering on the inside, but as a professional they are hiding it well.
Thanks for reading and have a great Easter break doing what ever it is you need to do.
