I am a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a friend, and a professional. Many men have a tendency to define themselves by what they do, and I don’t think I’m much different. I am a husband, because I do what a husband does; a father, because I do what a father does; a son, brother, and friend because I do what needs to be done for those roles.
And yet, I am also often none of those things, because I find that I set those roles aside at times, when I must also do the other things I am called to do. I am a professional. A business process consultant and systems developer; a business mentor and advisor; a thought provoker, and a creative voice of reason.
Together, however, these roles make up me. Part of being a good husband and father, also means being a professional at what I do. It is a challenge, and an ongoing struggle when the worlds of these roles collide, and it is also the most rewarding experience when these worlds are able to be combined.
In short… I am simply me, but I am always striving to become more.
