Fans of the show Buffy the Vampire Slayer will probably recognize this phrase: "I'm cookie dough." from series 7. Basically Buffy is explaining to Angel why she can't be with him (at the current time) because: "I'm cookie dough. I'm not done baking, I'm not finished becoming whoever it is I'm going to turn out to be."
This is how I'm feeling at the moment. I feel like I'm slowly cooking, perhaps still in the mixing stage even. I find that there are more ingredients being added to me all the time. I am finding new things I love, thinking new thoughts. But everything that has come before it is also included in the mix of ingredients that is me.
I don't know if I'll ever be done baking - I doubt it. But I am enjoying who I am now and enjoying finding ingredients to add. There is nothing better than discovering that perhaps I do enjoy reading an author I never would have approached (Anthony Horowitz if you're interested), or trying a new genre of writing and finding that I don't completely suck at it.
So I am cookie dough. But I'm focusing on enjoying the process of being made rather than the end product. After all, I don't bake to eat the cake (though it is usually delicious), but because I like baking.
