Good morning beautiful humans, happy Super Bowl Sunday! Thanks for spending part of the morning with me before you begin your festivities. Welcome to Life with Lane!
For years, I worked odd and end jobs; occasionaly I still do. You have to be quite the writer to earn a living in the beginning of your career. As long as I can remember I had this thought in my head that I was my occupation.
I worked as a server and as a hostess for many years. So, I looked at myself as being a hostess. There’s nothing wrong with being a host or hostess but that’s all I saw. I let my job define who I was and what I thought about myself.
I didn’t just think this about myself; I had often done that with other people. My friend was dating a guy that was a server sistant. When she told me she was dating him I said to her, “but he’s just a server assistant.”
After I few days past or maybe a week or two, I thought about that I had said to her. I was wrong and what I said wasn’t right. I realized he was more than that. He was a student, an artist, a creative thinker, but most importantly he was someone who loved her. He wasn’t his occupation.
Neither am I and neither are you! Sometimes we get so boggled down with labels we forget who and what we are. We forget how great we are. I have no issues with labels but not when it comes to this! I (WE) ARE NOT DEFINED BY OUR OCCUPATION.
I’m Delma’s daughter, a sister, an aunt, a fiance’, a friend, a neighbor, Mom to Dusty and Onyx, a writer, an entrepreneur, amateur dancer (lol), foodie, traveler, adventurer, and most importantly I am a child of God!
Thanks for reading my blog! I hope you enjoyed it! Have a wonderful blessed day. Follow me on Instagram @lashaunlee36. FYI I’m the biggest Patriots fan but I really like that picture of me in my Todd Gurley shirt, lol! Go Patriots!!!
