Who Do I Want To Be When I Grow Up?

A wonderful question was posed to me today in one of my many positive and uplifting emails I received today "Who do I want to be when I grow up?", not the old saying of "what do I want to be?" What I do for a job does not define who I am, who I am defines me.

I've been on overload lately, spreading myself way too thin. When did I think it was okay to do this to myself? I was on the way to work today, pouring down rain and my mood matched it. The bus was late, it didn't connect, someone was smoking in the bus shelter, I had to stand outside in the rain.

Finally I stopped, said a prayer that I would relax, in the grand scheme of life, I won't be late for work, I will just not as early as I like. Freaking out was NOT making it better. I calmed down, my bus showed up and I made the next connection.

Besides it's David's birthday, it's going to be an awesome day<3. So back to the question, who do I want to be? I want to be the girl who shows love, happiness, inspires people and myself, I want to live outside my comfort zone so I can grow to my potential. I want to serve and I want to follow the path that was meant for me


For me to be all this and more I have to look after myself for if I don't do this no one else will. I will be no good to anyone if I keep stretching myself too thin. So today I'm not taking anything extra on my plate, I have work, my course, Valentina, blogging ~ that's my limit for now. Come Saturday I can add in other things I want/need to do.

I hope everyone has an awesome day and thinks about how they can reduce to remove unneeded stress in their lives.
