Knowing What I Want

Shannon tells me the biggest change in me over the past few years is that I’m more defined…in an undefined way. She thinks it’s cool that I know exactly who I am and what I want and that I won’t settle for less.
How do I explain all the deep immersion to find out who I really am? I’m at a point where I now have a strong sense of self. It’s always been there but it was always so criticized for being different that I tried to ignore who I was to fit into other peoples’ molds.
So I’m starting a list of all the things I want…odd little things that come up at random….
I want a man who knows how to fill a prescription and how to administer meds to my children. After talking to my younger daughter today about her mouth surgery, that’s definitely the way to my heart right now.
