Growing Pains

With so much change going on in my life, I've been feeling very inspired to finally become the person that my 10 year old self thought I would be at the age I am now. I often ask myself "What kind of wife, daughter, and coworker do I want to be?" Because I recently had a breakthrough when I realized that I can do that. All I have to do is make a choice, and then go be it! What my ten year old self didn't know, is that I have to actually work to make it happen.

So I've been paying a lot of attention to how I come across. The method I've been using to decide which traits need to change, and which ones need to stay is to ask myself questions as I notice certain things. I know that I'm a friendly person, but does everyone else know that unless I smile and greet them as they walk by? I know that I love my husband but does he know that if I don't take time to show him? I don't know if I'm actually making any progress yet, but I think I'm stumbling in the right direction.
