I’m confused about what to call or label myself. Like many Lady Boomers, I wear a lot of hats. I love being a Mom to my adult children and would love to be a grandmother (if my kids would ever pause in their pursuits of degrees and career opportunities to make that happen). I’m a daughter helping care for an Alzheimer’s afflicted father. My husband and I own a market research firm conducting survey and focus group research for campaigns and companies, which supports our family. But what I really love is writing this blog. My blog writing has morphed into a book and accompanying journal entitled, “Be Brave. Lose the Beige”. I’m a clay artist and enjoy creating clay sculptures, some of which I’m using to illustrate my book. So what is my identity exactly? I feel like such a hybrid of several different roles. I think many of us Lady Boomers feel the same way. My husband came up with a fun label for me – Claywriter. I really love the term. It describes at least two of my roles (clay artist and writer). Why not try creating a fun word to describe yourself and your pursuits? Don’t let the English language limit your choices. Post a comment to share your new found I.D.
