I often think about the future and wonder where I will be in a few years time, and what I will be doing. If I’ll be happy? Will I have kids? Where will I be living? It’s nice to plan ahead, hope and dream for the future, but sometimes I get so wrapped up in plans I forget to live for the now. We’ve all heard it before, ‘Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans’ and it really is true. So many of us forget to stop looking ahead so much, and take notice at what’s going on around us right now. After all, what we do today will influence tomorrow anyway.
So with that in mind I got to thinking about what kind of person I want to be today, tomorrow, ten years down the line.
Okay this probably sounds lame, but hear me out. I worry that I’m not fun, spontaneous or exciting enough in my day to day life anyway with Gary and my friends. I hope I am, but I always wonder whether I could be happier, chattier, ..more interesting? I’m probably being self conscious for nothing, which doesn’t help. But I do want to be the best I can be without my anxiety or insecurities holding me back with the people I love. Also when I picture having children in the future, one of my biggest hopes is that I’m a really fun mum. Not in a, ‘I’m a cool mom!’ way, haha. Just a relaxed and understanding mum who spends lots of quality time with my kids doing ‘fun’ things.
When I look back over times I’ve been ashamed of myself, or done things I regret, it’s usually because I haven’t been strong enough. I’d like to think of myself as a strong person in various ways, and find it within me to overcome things that I find hard. Whether it be standing up for myself (which I am awful at), sticking by things I believe in, or knowing that I have the courage to overcome anything. I would love this more than anything, and hope I gain this quality as I grow older.
Kindness is something I strive to be all the time of course. But sometimes we forget that we can go that extra mile for others, or we fail to see the everyday kindness’s we are capable of. I would like to constantly improve on this and be kinder to myself and others around me. The people I admire most are always kind people and it truly is an important quality. So whether it be helping out someone as I go about my business, sending a random card/gift to a friend, or even just telling someone they look nice today; I know I’ll be trying to spread a little kindness.
Have you thought about the kind of person you are or how others see you?
