being me, label

Those that Matter

I often think of the labels we bestow upon each other…hero, leader, expert, inspiration

And those we give to our students…smart, lazy, underachiever, confused, creative

And I wonder how often we miss the mark altogether?

How often does the label describe the whole person?  How often do we truly know the whole person?

I do not do well with labels, and I laugh when others give them to me, but there are some I carry with me always, in awe that that I have them; mother, wife, teacher.

Those are the labels that matter

  1. I think you can sum up my feelings on labels in this quote:"I did have a test today; that wasn't bullshit. It's on European socialism. I'm not European. I don't plan on being European. So who gives a crap if they're socialists? They could be fascist anarchists; that still wouldn't change the fact that I don't own a car.Isms in my opinion aren't good. To quote John Lennon: I am the walrus. I could be the walrus. I'd still have to bum rides off of people."
