If I were to ask you to tell me about yourself, what would you say?
Would you start with what you do for a living? Would you tell me that you’re a mother, a father, a sibling or a spouse? I’m curious (and actually it would be really nice if you fancy telling me a bit about yourself in the comment section below), because I think the way we introduce ourselves says a lot about what we value.
To start with my job title shows that I put a lot of weight behind my profession, and I think that’s because I’m still in the ‘pinch me’ phase about being paid to write other people’s blog posts. There’s more work to be done, but I’m moving in the right direction. Then, I told you what I like to do – the things that make me feel most like me: my healthiest and happiest self.
And there it ends, but truthfully I’m lots more things.
I’m a feminist and a pianist (though never did I say I was a good one) and three years ago I graduated from law school with a 1st class degree. And although I’m struggling to think of any more ‘things’ that I am, I expect I could offer you a hundred further tidbits of information if I thought about it for long enough.
But what’s interesting me at the moment, most of all, is the idea that it’s the insignificant things I could divulge to you that matter the most, because those are the things that help us to really know another person. Here are the smallest and most insignificant details about myself, entrusted to you. 🙂
