Compared to me 10 years ago. I am more comfortable taking initiative and being direct. If I see a problem with something, I will call straight away and fix it. I am less idealistic. Ideals are understood more as guides than dreams I have to achieve to save the world. I dislike definitions like left and the right in politics and move more toward open approaches to problems. ie. I am ready to act more and trust perception, but less ready to make idealistic calls I cannot justify or make rash statements about the way things are. I wake up in the morning and see some Te in the mirror as much as Fi. And I like it rather than feeling I'm losing part of myself. There's a drive behind it. I like ideas like power dressing now also, whereas I used to like to be inconspicuous. I see marketing and media as tools rather than evils. And maybe like the idea of being part of evil empires. hmmm, these might just be cyclic things though...
Freude, schöner Götterfunken Tochter aus Elysium, Wir betreten feuertrunken, Himmlische, dein Heiligtum! Deine Zauber binden wieder Was die Mode streng geteilt; Alle Menschen werden Brüder, Wo dein sanfter Flügel weilt.
<<< We-e-ell, some of us look like this (I'm 41 ).
Actually, it's nice to get older and a bit 'tougher', if that makes sense?
Don't worry, I'm still a terrible softie, getting idealistically and naively worked up over stuff plus even more often acting in ways my 9-year old boy now identifies as "Mama's silly button". He's just learning English and I quite loved the association between silly swich and belly button!
The photo was taken a year ago. I was sad because I was in the middle of a fall out with a - now former - good friend, but hosting this party I had to keep on smiling. Inside I was .
The ones I know age beautifully I must say... I think that it has to do with the fact that they have such a positive outlook in life and smile often and are the life of the party, so that when they inevitably get older, their laugh lines are there, correctly placed... And they still keep that silly switch too...
