Frolicking Summer Goddess mini challenge!!

I really had to think about this but I am a Water Goddess!!
I was watching Memoirs of a Geisha last night (I have a habit of watching quiet, girl movies when my husband is away) and a line from the movie is sticking in my head.
"And when trapped, water finds a new path".
That is me. I am resilient, strong, stubborn (that CAN be a good thing lol) and flexible.
After almost 5 years of marriage to a soldier, I am able to adapt to changes pretty quickly, I am used to being told at the last minute of a week long trip to the field. I don't freak if we come up on orders. I am learning to bloom where I am planted and that no matter what, life is what I choose to make it.
On the other hand, I am incredibly stubborn. You don't mess with my kids. I will not rest until my kids are in the best possible situation and have the best care/ therapy/ school placement that they possibly can. I will teach them to fight for themselves as well as they grow.
One of the weaknesses of water is definitely the ability to be stuck, blocked or dammed up. I think this can accurately describe me as well. I can get into ruts very easily. I can often have difficulty recognizing the real reason that I am upset or can often bury feelings deep inside and pretend that all is well.
