I want to print business cards this week, and started to wonder if I should include a professional title or not, then the above started flooding my brain.

I always struggle to pinpoint exactly who I am. Can I only define myself through my profession, my family, or my highest degree? I have the feeling people too often get defined by their profession, but there might be something underneath that will define them a lot more than what they currently do as a job. I also think that we are always changing, learning and evolving.

The picture that I have included with this post is there to give you, my reader an image of me. It was taken by my dad in December.

Who are you?
