I love podcasts, and I tuned in to Crafty Ass Female’s episode, “What’s My Thing” Revisited – their retake on one of their earlier episodes. I’ve been struggling for a while with Imposter Syndrome (see previous post: You Have to be an Imposter to have the Syndrome, Right?) and this really opened my eyes a lot.
My thing is varied, and they all come together to make one whole.
I am a high school teacher – and I adore my job. It’s hard and difficult and there’s days I don’t want to do it, but overall, I can’t imagine doing anything else.
I am a knitter, and that has grown into a knitwear designer. I am so blessed that I have had such a positive reaction so far, and I hope this journey continues to grow.
I am a youth worker. I work with youth at my church, at my school, and I want to bless and grow youth through Wattle&Wool as well.
I really truly think it is all three of these things that collect and combine into my “thing”, and I couldn’t be prouder.
I sometimes worry that I’m too one-sided, or boring, but I then remember the other facets to who I am and I feel encouraged again – I’m sarcastic, I’m caring, I’m quick to judge but open to learn, I’m young and a knitter and I have room for influence.
What’s your thing?
