What do you do?

This week, Netflix let me know that Across the Universe was in my queue, waiting to be watched. It’s a musical based on The Beatles music catalog. It’s a great watch for anyone who enjoys their music or grew up during the Vietnam era.

There’s a scene when young Jude is invited to Max’s house for Thanksgiving. A lively debate ensues when an uncle tells Max, “What you do defines who you are.” In contrast, Jude ends the discussion with, “Surely, it’s not what you do but how you do it.”

I’ve struggled for a long time to define myself as a writer. It feels good to wake up in the morning knowing I can communicate through so many mediums and help brands, small businesses, and other creative services become a part of someone’s day-to-day life.

Today, while warming up for my chiropractor’s appointment, one of the staff members asked me, “If you could only do one thing for the rest of your life, what would you be doing?”

For the first time, I took a breath and said, “I’m already doing it. I’m a writer.”
