According to dictionary.com the word JUST has thirteen definitions. I won’t list them all here because for my purpose today, I am only going to focus on definition number twelve. JUST – only, merely.
As a stay-at-home mom, I have heard many times, “Oh, you’re JUST a housewife,” or “JUST a stay-at-home mom.”
No, I’m not JUST either of those things; I’m both of them and many more. First and foremost I am a person with feelings. Secondly, I am a child of God. I am a wife and a mother, but I am also a teacher and a writer (whether or not I ever get published is irrelevant, I am still a writer).
When necessary, I become a taxi driver, a nurse, a vet, a groundskeeper/gardener, a chef/baker, and so much more.
I am not JUST anything and neither are you.
What things do you do that keep you from being a JUST type of person?
