Am I good at what I do? Well, I know there are plenty of people out there who do not think I do much of anything. But the absolutely number one thing I do in my life is be a wife. This is not anti feminist, I chose to make wife my full time vocation. Not because I have to, or because I have no other options, but because I want to. Shortly after we married, we made the decision that it no longer made sense for me to continue in my full time job. It was a choice we made together. So I embraced my role as housewife.
Beyond my main role as housewife, there are plenty of other things I do. I am a crafter, an amateur photographer, a writer, a fund raiser, a community advocate, and an advisor. These are all things that I really enjoy doing, and according to the feedback I have gotten over the years, I do them well. Of my hobbies, I really want to improve my writing skills (something I am starting to work at) and my photography skills.
I will soon be starting a new role, working at a local library. Everyone seems to think I am going to do a wonderful job at this, so I hope they are right. I can tell you that I am incredibly excited, and have a million ideas brewing up in my brain. Thank goodness for Pinterest, right?
So, what do I do? I live my life, and I try to do it in the very best way possible, full of optimism, joy, love, and kindness. That does not mean I do not wish I could be better. Every day is a balance of gratitude for the abundance of blessings in my life, and a desire to use those blessings in even greater ways.
