Five Minute Friday: Expectation
i remember when i was just married having a hard time with something and asking my mom when she finally felt like a grown up. i mean, here i was married, thinking about babies and i still felt like such a kid. i'm not sure if i expected the wedding ring to make that change - or birthing a baby - or almost ten years doing the same job.
i expected to feel like a grown-up by the time i was 27. that seemed reasonable. i heard a quote once that you know you're a grown-up when you stop calling them that. i guess 27 isn't the magic age either.
one day. but i think what i've learned in this unmet expectation is that every day is new and a chance to grow. i can either be afraid of what i don't think i can accomplish or meet it head on. maybe the expectation should be daily evolving and growing and changing.
