In psychology there is an expression called `cognitive lag.' Cognitive lag may be described as a state in which our awareness has not caught up with our growth. In other words, we tend not to notice a change—sometimes a very profound and significant change—which has taken place within us until some time after the change has occurred. Simply put, our self-image lags behind the actual fact of our new state of being. We may be relating to ourselves as we were a few years back, not realizing that we are actually a very different person from who we were then. It is helpful to keep in mind that each of us is a changing, growing, unfolding being and that our yesterdays are not our todays; our todays will not be our tomorrows. Dust off your old image of who you are, and you'll discover the radiant person that has come into being when you weren't even looking.
