I’ve heard and read often about women feeling they come into their own in their 30s and I now definitely understand it. This year, and the last couple of months especially, I can honestly say I’ve grown a great deal and am more able to define who I am. There is no specific event or time that triggered it, at least as far as I can see, but I feel different about myself.
For one, I’m more confident. I always, always struggle (and still do) with feeling good about myself. It’s no secret – most women have this same struggle. Recently I’m finding I feel better about myself and more confident in general. I’ve always known I’m smart, sexy, and am extremely capable of doing an amazing job of anything I put my mind to, but that isn’t what I mean.
It’s more a personal feeling. I feel more comfortable asking for things I want, especially in work. In fact, work is the place I feel I’ve grown the most confident and comfortable where before I wasn’t so comfortable. That feeling is bleeding through into other areas of my life, and it’s a nice feeling.
I still have a long way to go, but as far as knowing what I want and learning how to ask for it goes? I’m getting there 🙂
