The Journey To Me: Role Models

Mood: Really good actually :) 
Weather: Rainy and COOOOOLD

I have been thinking very very much about myself lately, not in an egotistical fashion but more about who I am and who I want to be.  Its really a big thing on my mind as I have said and I am determined to figure it out.  I was thinking that one thing a person needs to find out who they want to be is to have a role model.  I started to think. . .hmm. . .I don't have a role model, but I do.  I idolize my mother in many ways.  She is a great mother, wife, and friend, she has strong values and morals and she knows who she is and what she wants.  She works hard for her family and always strives to be better.  She always said that if I could find a man half as good as my dad I would be a lucky woman, well I think if I'm half the person she is I'm doing pretty good.  I also idolize my grandma Judy.  She isn't perfect, and we don't always see eye to eye but she is one of the most hard working people I know.  She sets goals and achieves them.  Her energy and drive amazes me.  She and my grandfather went from having nothing and pregnant at 18 to being quite well off because of their hard work, frugality, and self sufficiency.  But outside of family. . .I'm not sure I really have an idol or role model.  I'm not sure if you're supposed to or not.  I want to be a strong person.  I want to be driven.  I want to be kind.  I want to be honest.  I want to be a good mother one day.  I want to be a good wife, or currently, a good girlfriend.  I want to be a good friend.  And most of all, I want to be happy.
