The truth is that our job does not define who we are. Who we are is not the same thing as our occupation. I am separate from what I do. I can do many things in life – wear many different hats – but not one of them defines who I am.
I bring myself to my job. I take myself home from my job. I am myself outside my job as well as inside my job. I am totally who I am, with or without my occupation. Mother, father, grandmother, grandfather, sister, brother – these also do not define who I am.
My eulogy will probably best define who I was. What did my life bring to others? What energy did I bring? What service did I bring? What qualities did I best exemplify? Trustworthy, honest, full of integrity, joyful, peaceful, contented, wise, thoughtful, kind, considerate, compassionate, loving, caring, easy-going? Hopefully some of these words describe the person I am today and will be remembered when it's time for my eulogy.
I am not what I have done; I am who I have become.
