Finding My Voice

Wednesday, August 25, 2010

In the last 4 weeks, I've been finding my voice. I tend to be easy going, but sometimes easy going turns into getting taken advantage of. I used to be the girl in the group who says, "Whatever", when asked what movie I want to see or what restaurant I want to eat at.

I'm figuring out what my preferences are. What I want to eat, where I want to go, and what I want to do. I'm getting to know myself again. And today, when my downstairs neighbor started cranking his techno music, I asked him to turn it down. Four weeks ago, I would have stewed in silence.

It's nice to be heard.

    That is fantastic! I found my voice when I had my son. He needed me to speak up for his needs, and it had to be me. I am such a different person than I was 10 years ago. I feel that you are emerging, like a butterfly from a cocoon.As I said to you earlier, a new life is just beginning for you. Glad you are feeling moments of empowerment and happiness.
Big hugs!

    Alright! Way to Go! It's fun learning! Keep at it! Keep a journal of your feelings and how you handled them, like your blog. You can look back and know how you've grown, like the marks on the end of the wall when you were a kid. You remember the one with the ruler attached to it.

Anyway, Congratulations! You've actually passed a milestone. Take note of it and I wish you many more.

    Great job!! Isn't it a nice feeling when you start to realize who you are?? I am finding that that is the best part of getting older...I am not afraid to say what I mean and mean what I say! I am glad you are getting to that point as well...
