Passive VS Active, the struggle continues

I’m a pretty passive person, I don’t get too excited about stuff, generally tend to go with the flow.  That might work for me, however it’s not going to work for my writing.  I had a very insightful phone conversation with my editor last night, I give thanks for her wisdom.  Now I have to scour my work and up the active sentences.  More show, less tell.   That seems like an easy enough concept, but I find it a struggle to even recognize a passive sentence, never mind fix it, lol.  Didn’t sleep too much last night, thinking about this.  No one ever said this writing business was going to be easy.
