Practice Your Identity

I went on a walk today with my dogs at our normal park that we go for walks at.  There’s a huge field there and there are always games and practice at the fields.  After tonight’s walk, I was hit with the idea that these kids – soccer today – has as one of their identities “soccer player.”  They would probably describe who they are as “soccer player.”  These kids “practice” their identity every day.

I thought about my other identities and I wondered if I “practice” my identity as much as these soccer players do.  I think it’s a great practice no matter what your identity.  If you’re a writer, you should practice writing – everyday.  If you’re an artist, you probably create art, but you can practice it as well to become better.  No matter what identities you take you – you should practice your identity.
