Defining My Roles

As I continue down this path of self-discovery, I need to consider the roles I play, their importance and the impact on me.  This too can be overwhelming. 

In my 2015 book, A Working Mom’s Guide:  Taking Control, I have an exercise where I listed the roles I played from mom to first cousin once removed.  I then grouped and narrowed the list down to those 4 responsibilities that demand the most of my time or that were most important to me.  The Top 4 are:

Family:  My relationship with my husband and kids are my top priority.  If something goes wrong with them, I am not okay.  My sister’s, nieces and friends are also important to me, but do not require the same amount of attention as my immediate family.

Self:  It’s important to be mindful of my needs so I can live a fulfilled life.

Work:  I need the financial means to take care of myself.

Home:  Our house provides shelter and warmth and is also our biggest financial asset.

I feel defining your life roles gives a perspective on who you are and will help in improving how you will feel when your actions align to your roles.
