I Love Hats!
When I was searching for inspiration for today’s post, my mind went in many directions (no big surprise there), and I had a difficult time deciding which hat I should wear creating the post?
Did I just say hat? I happen to love wearing hats and can be seen sporting one often. Summertime means straw fedoras (tres chic) or the very occasional appearance of a baseball hat. Does a bicycle helmet count as a hat?
Enough about my hat collection, and back to my topic
There is a point to my going on about a love of hats. Another type of hat I wear is invisible and changes as I change roles in my life. Here is a short list of the invisible hats I wear:
- Mommy hat: True that one of my children is 20 years-old, but I am still a mommy to her and my 13 year old. Today, 2 of my 3 nephews is at my house and my mom hat stays tight in place on my head.
- Wife hat: I am fortunate enough to share my life with Robert for the past 15 years. If I could see this one, I wonder what it would look like?
- Cooking/Cleaning hat: OK, in reality, that one sits on a shelf in my closet somewhere rarely to be seen by the light of day. I am no domestic goddess and anyone who knows me, realizes I don’t like cooking or cleaning. However the hat is still there to be worn on special occasions 😀
- Leader hat: I am very proud of the work I have done on my leadership skills the past few years as I worked on my MBA. This hat, never comes off when I am at work. I may not be the only leader in the building, but I always think and behave like a leader.
Lesson learned: we all wear hats
Whether you like wearing fedoras like me or just the invisible kind of hat, we all wear them. Which hat do you wear most often and why?
