It may happen often — you hear the phrase, “I remember you when you were. . .”. What are you doing now? As you respond, there is a pause before hearing. . . “Really, how did that happen?”
Pre-conceived notions tend to stay with many of us for a while. When someone has not kept in touch with our lives, they have not witnessed how we have grown as individuals, because we are life-long learners. We certainly grow and change everyday, both physically and mentally.
How have you changed your viewpoints, attitudes, likes, dislikes from what they were ten years ago, five years ago, or even yesterday? What made you happy? What made you laugh? What made you pause to think? What was hard to do? What came easy for you? What positions have you held in recent years and how have you grown? What have you learned that increased your knowledge of yourself and those around you?
We keep up with our lives and those close to us as best we can. As you change from day-to-day this week, Choose Who You Want to Be Known As. Enjoy your week.
