We were discussing the other evening at the dinner table who each of our family members were.

My son by my own pen has been described as a "hockey player", a "lacrosse player", a "protege' weight lifter", etcetera. etcetera...

I've hyped him up so much that he himself has started defining himself by what he enjoys to do.

OK, cool! But not really!!!  I thought about it for a while and told him to ask me who I am, and what I do.  (No reference to Kindergarten Cop..."Who's your daddy and what does he do?"

He did, and I thought about my answer and it was NOT spontaneous.  I told him that I am his Mother's husband and his Dad that happens to teach people STUFF mostly in a gym.  I am a servant to all and a slave to none.

He thought deeply for a few minutes while chewing on not only his food, but what I just said.  He then asked if it was OK to NOT be JUST a hockey player, or a lacrosse player?

I answered, telling him YES!  You are so much MORE than JUST an athlete.

One day, you will NOT be able to DO whatever it is you are doing.  When that day comes, if you know you are more than what you currently describe, then it won't be a big deal to hang up the cleats, the pads, the helmet, or the weight belt.  It won't be a big deal that you aren't going to a building to write emails, talk on the phone and make money.

Everyone is SO much MORE!  Don't put limits on who you are, or what you do.
