If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
Hmm…. honestly, I’m fairly happy with myself. I’d obviously love to be able to lose weight more easily.
But, I feel like that question is a personality trait.
I guess I’d be more cautious of others feelings.
When we were moving there were certain people who consistently said really thoughtless things to me. They weren’t (in any way) trying to be mean, but my already wounded heart took it that way.
I vowed that I would be more tender with people. That I would consider feelings before I stomped around on them. That I would realize that people have so much below the surface that we just don’t get.
I’m not particularly sure that I am. I tend to be bluntly honest, and that may not be as tender as I had hoped.
I’d love to show more affection and love to my children, I’d love to yell less and hug more, I’d love my love handles to disappear. Oh wait, less superficial.
Anyway, that’s it. More tender with people’s feelings, even though I never mean to be hurtful, I fear I sometimes am.
