I was looking through a carefully constructed album of pictures of me put together by my mom and I noticed how my smile seemed to evolve over the years.

The introverted book worm who felt compelled to read everything, even cereal boxes, evolved into the ambiverted cheerleader who needed to express herself through movement, who turned into the military officer known for smiling, actually laughing loudly and frequently.

And since all of those versions of me sill exist, maybe the evolution was my confidence in and comfort with all aspects of my personality.

  1. The synthesis, while I’m sure, bumpy, and frightening at times, has had a beautiful fruition. As noted by current pictorial and these written dissertations and reflections.
    Thank you for accepting my friend request.
