Role Playing

Will you be playing a role today.  I know I will.  In fact, I’ll be playing many roles today.

Today, I’ll play the role of a person. A man. A husband. A step-father. A granfather. A son. A brother. A teammate. A student. A worker. A confidant. A coach. A friend.  The list goes on and on.  What about you?

Do you take joy in who you are? Are you conscious of the many different roles in your life, and the many different people you become in order to fill those roles?

It’s astonishing how rarely we think of the many different roles in our life, and just how much impact each has on our daily journey. Perhaps we carry similar motivation into our roles, but for the most part we are different people in each role. Each of our roles as a husbands, wives, sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, co-workers, bosses, friends, students, teachers, mentors, teammates…. calls us to be completely different people.

That is something to celebrate!

Each role brings to it different things to learn. Each role brings unique challenges, experience and rewards that help our spirits to grow into the extraordinary beings that we have the potential to be. Each role helps us to further define who we are, what we believe, and what we intend to give to the world.

I feel joy as a husband and joy as a coach.  I know that both roles are a true blessing in my life and they give me great cause to rejoice. And that’s only for two of the people who I am.

Enjoy a day filled with many roles.
