Today Kelly wrote a post called "I wish I was that way..." about things that she wishes she could change about herself. This is something I've been thinking about a whole lot lately, so I thought I'd write my own version. Kelly said that for the most part she's accepted who she is, and is okay with it, but I'm not quite to that point. Most of these are things I would legitimately like to change about myself, and things that I work on.
I wish that I could find my personal style. I feel like I like so many different styles of clothing that I don't have an individual style that just works for me.
I wish I could have long, pretty hair. I can never seem to let it get long enough, and when it is long I always end up chopping it off because it's so thick and heavy!
I wish I could not worry so much about what other people say or think about me.
I wish I kept a better house. I pretty much suck at keeping up with laundry and cleaning. It's not that I don't appreciate a clean house, and I know that when the house is clean and organized I feel so much less stress, but I can never seem to find the time and energy to keep it the way I would like it to be.
I wish I wasn't so materialistic. I know I'm far less materialistic than some, but I still like things too much for my own good.
I wish I was a more intentional mom. These days I feel like we're mostly in survival mode and I don't take a lot of time for purposeful activities with the boys.
I wish I had more friends. Wow. That sounds so desperate and lame, but I'm just being honest. When Nathan and I moved for school we didn't really have time for friends because we both worked full-time and were full-time students. I'm just now to a point where I have time to hang out with other moms or friends, but it's so hard to meet people!
I wish I wasn't so emotional. I cry when I get mad, and it's so embarrassing when it happens, especially at work. :)
So, is there anything you wish you could change about yourself?
