Day 6 of the countdown...almost there!!!
Since Day 2's post (you can read it here), and really a lot of the posts lately are along the same lines, I've been thinking a lot. I mentioned that I am having a slight identity crisis. I've been a good faker for a long time.
So I decided to start thinking of words that describe what I want to be. At first, I thought I was going to have a hard time, but once I got going it was hard to stop! I think I could still be writing if I had more room on the page:
|When I grow up I will be...|
One good thing about my 'wish' list above is that I am already some of these things! So that makes me happy...
Other things on my list are going to require a lot of work! I'm at a good starting point, I think. I'm ready for a change, and I'm willing to put forth the effort to try to make these positive traits my own.
I made this the 'when I grow up' list, because right now I feel a little unsure and a little naive, just like the shy little girl I drew. I know that there will be challenges and a lot to learn. But instead of being cynical and pessimistic, I'm going to approach it with the unadulterated enthusiasm of youth. So look out world...I've got my crayons and I'm on a mission!
