The latest blog post from Author Carrie Daws

Does Your Identity Matter?
Who are you? Besides your name, what titles or identities do you carry around or proudly profess? And which is primary, the one that most informs the others? Does it matter? Let's think about that. I am a wife, mother, and grandmother. Consider my extended family and I add sister, niece, cousin, and aunt. I'm a friend and mentor, military BRAT and military spouse (RET). At my church, I'm a small group leader and part-time volunteer. As an author, I'm a writer, blogger, editor, and marketer. All of those identities are important to me in varying degrees. We could apply any number of labels from society, including my gender, age, sexual orientation, race, country of origin, and cultural heritage. I'm a college graduate, introverted, short, reserved, creative, analytical, and conservative. Those labels tend to be much lower on my priority list. I could go on, but you get the point. We all carry many identities with us everywhere we go. Some are defined by our DNA, some we worked hard for, some were cast on us by others. These labels affect our thought processes and decisions more than we usually consider, particularly the ones we grant the greatest importance. Out of all I've listed for me, I purposely left one out that is of utmost importance to me. In fact, I try to make it my primary identity, informing and molding all of the others. Curious?
