a self

 

I want my old self back… but wait, is that really what I want?  Maybe I want a new self.  a stronger self.  a more confident self.  a self.  

ever since I became old enough to drink I have had a title.   I didn’t and still don’t really mind these titles but they can tend to take over ones identity. 

My husband and I have been one of those couples who call each other “mum” and  “dad”   but recently I noticed my husband calling me by my first name.  and I love it.  I really love it.   this past weekend he gave me a new nickname.  “little”   I love that too. 

 I suppose that really has nothing to do with becoming a self.   it does, however, give me an identity that does not include a title.   That to me is a step in the right direction.
