I read a post from Jeff Goins blog– Portfolio Life and the lines started falling in pleasant places! The confusion I’ve been feeling for a while now started melting away. As I read the first sentence in that post- “You are not just what you do. You were made for more than just one thing. Your life is a portfolio of activities, all of which make you who you are”– I started getting clarity! I froze! I’m not crazy after all!
He further defined the Portfolio Life, as not just about what I do but it’s about who I am!
Ok! let me explain why those words are having such a crazy-good crazy, effect on me. You see, for the most part of my life, I’ve been involved in quite a number of things, but nothing fitted into one trade or profession and this was so confusing that I thought I was one seriously unfocused human being! But all that is changing now!
After reading the post and listening to the podcast, I now can fully embrace who I am and all the amazing
confused things that make me who I am!
So! I define my portfolio life as an entrepreneur, sculptor, interior designer, wanna-be-blogger, social media and content management consultant, a motivator, a researcher, a mother who works hard to provide the best life for her amazing son, an awesome sister to 5 other sisters who tell me most of the things that make up my portfolio life- good organising skills, good analytical mind, good problem solving skills, good communication skills and strategist! See, all these things and more make up who I am, and guess what I don’t even know half of it but as I go on in life I’ll discover more and more and even acquire some along the way!
Whew! I ain’t so weird after all! I am just living my Portfolio Life- Like a Boss!
