My Own Story of the Day

In the style of Story People, I've created my own:

Torn between an old me and a new me and not entirely sure if I can be either.

I was on the phone the other night with a friend at home who's been married for 5 years with two little girls. In the middle of the conversation I was struck by just how different her life is from mine and how different my life used to be. I miss so many things about home at times, but then I also love all of the things I've gotten to do living in the city.

In some ways I feel like I never really lived before this, but I didn't know that before because I was happy with my life before. I want to feel a bit more settled in time but I don't want to have to give up one for the other.

I want to be both me's....a better me.

I LOVE this story -- and I can identify with it SO much right now. Brian Andreas should pay you so he can publish this!
