one day while walking to my car i found a piece of paper on the ground. it said this,
"write down the person you want to be, the qualities you wish to have, that would make you your best self. these are the qualities you wish to find in someone else. if you are striving to be the best you, you will find the best for you!"
for days and days i thought about it, and found it true. the qualities i want to find are qualities i wish to have. for the past month i have worked on this in my journal and this is my response, maybe the person who dropped this will come across my blog, probably not, but at least their crumpled up paper went to good use.
"i want to be really friendly and fun. i want to be more easy going and generous. i want to always put the lord first. i want to stop being a stress case. i want to make myself happy instead of depending on things & people. i want to make my family my number one priority. i want to stop gossiping. i want to be active and healthy. i want to be spontaneous. i want my life to fall together. i dont want conflict or controversy. i want to worry less. i want to be loved. i want to love. i want solid habits & to chuck the bad ones out. i want to be more positive. i want to be less selfish. i want more strength. i want to be the best friend to confide in. i want to work hard. i want to be honest and loyal. i dont want to be stepped on. i want spunk. i want to be successful. i want to be less judgemental. i want to be trusted. i want to be less envious and more curious. i want to have enough to give. i want to glow and have light. i want to stand on my own two feet and like it."
i challenge you to do the same! whether you are single or married. become the person you wish to spend your life with!
happiest of sundays.
