The Ideal Me: Five Roles

Whom do I want to be?  I've spent a lot of time thinking about that lately, typically in relation to my five values.  Each value translates fairly well into a role.

Family -> Father
Community -> Neighbor
Creativity -> Maker
Exploration -> Learner
Flow -> Artist

Why did I these five?  When it comes to family, I see Father as being more important than Husband.  Both are important, of course.  Community was a much more difficult choice.  I nearly put Leader, but that's not really what I want.  Mentor would work well, but being friends with my neighbors for once would be nice.  Creativity could have gone to either Maker or Artist, but to create is to make.  Exploration was an easy one since I really like to learn.  Flow seems to link well to Artist.  If you flow while moving, you are said to move like a dancer. 

Really, this just fits into my Four L philosophical framework.
