As a “human becoming” I often ask myself who I am right now. The answer differs from day-to-day, even hour to hour.
A lot of people use the term “wearing a different hat” when they talk about the different roles they play. We all have different hats; some just have more of them. I remember reading “The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins” to my classes when I was a teacher. The hats got more and more ornate as he tried to remove them. Something like that happens to us. We take on a role, say the role of teacher. We then find we aren’t just teaching but we’re also supervising a student teacher, so we have another hat on top of the teacher hat. But we might have to address a group of educators or parents about something we’re doing with our class, so we wear the hat of public speaker, and so on.
Through writing this blog, which bears my heart to all and sundry, I want to share all aspects of my self with anyone interested. In this way I remove the hats one at a time until the real me is revealed. Perhaps I’ll be able to see myself under all these hats. I’m a human becoming. I hope to discover just who I am becoming some day.
