As I am still horribly ill, I decided to do a repost of something from a couple of years back. This spawned many a long conversation in our house. Since New Year is fast approaching and the thought of resolutions is in the air, I think this is a good place to start. Enjoy!
I WOULD CHANGE
*nothing about my life because it’s how I got where I am now. (but that being said…)
*the shape of my body so I could confidently walk, completely naked, into the street and think nothing of it. 🙂
*the color of the paint on my walls every six months if that were not horribly inconvenient.
*the time I lost away from old friends because they complete my life in so many ways.
*how easily I stop talking when I know that the thing I am about to say is likely going to hurt someone.
*the perception that I am uber-strong and confident all the time so that people will realize sometimes, I just need a hug.
*the fact that we live in a world where too many people are not afforded basic human rights, whether it due to famine, bigotry, homophobia, religious fundamentalism, our own government…
*the fact that children go to bed hungry in one of the wealthiest nations in the world.
*that I neglected to tell important people how much they meant to me when I had the chance.
