This Is Me
Over the past ten years I have been labelled a researcher, radio producer, cleaner, trainee journalist, dinner lady, telesales rep, marketing manager, student, admin assistant, freelance journalist, magazine editor, receptionist, data inputter, shop assistant, factory worker, medical receptionist, unpublished author, competition coordinator and waitress.
And whilst all of these labels have said something about the state of my life at various points in time, none have come close defining 'me'.
Right now I am simply a mother.
And despite the fact that I've never spent less time focusing on myself I've never felt better defined.
Here I have a purpose. Here I am fulfilled. Here I am comfortable and complete. Here I am finally 'me'.
