There are so many periods that we go through in our lives. We go from childhood to adulthood trying to find ourselves and ultimately establish who we are. We grow our confidence and establish our individualism. We take stock of whether we are leaders or followers and then we create a plan and commit to it. I have to say that in have always had a mind of my own. I listen, observe, and then decide. I think of others well being as well as my own. I also teach and advise.. At this stage of my life I am comfortable with me. As a woman, a mom, and a wife I have finally got it together. I have realized that there has to be a balance for there to be peace of mind. I also realize that if I am around people who do not care about me as hard as it may be I have to let rhem go. I am so thankful for this life of mine that allows me to be comfortable in my own skin. My 40’s are pretty great and I am looking forward to the rest of my journey.
