New Person Me

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “New Skin.”

If you could spend the next year as someone radically different from the current “you” — a member of a different species, someone from a different gender or generation, etc. — who would you choose to be?

Given this choice, I would choose to be me. I would be the me I was in the past with one exception. Knowing what I know now, I would change all the things that I could change. (Hindsight is 20/20).

First, I would not have gotten married quite so young and second, I would quickly dump the marriage counselor that my husband and I went to. I would know that all our marriage needed was better communication with each other and certainly not what the “counselor” suggested.

I would have that third child that I wanted to have. (My medical professional talked me out of it). However, at that time I was not aware of his dubious intentions.

My more mature self would know that happiness is inside myself and not outside myself. I would have more fun with my family and work harder at being a better wife, mother and person.

Going back to my past, I would take a mental health professional with me so I could get the medications and professional help I needed that were not available during that time.

I would know that true fulfillment is knowing you are doing the very best you can in your circumstances, contributing to the betterment of this world, and raising and nurturing a wonderful and loving family.

After making these changes, there would be no other changes (that I am currently aware of) of which would need to be made.

I am a brand new person now, and this is such a wonderful way to start a new year.

Happy New Year!

    • Ahh thank you. πŸ™‚ I just read a post about someone becoming a bird and I really enjoyed being a bird while I read it. πŸ˜† I hope you are having a happy new year!

  1. Your idea of a new “old you” is so refreshing. We all have something that we need to change if given a chance. πŸ™‚

    • LOL! I had to go back and read the post you were referring to because it has been awhile since I wrote it. Thank you Jodi. You are such a confidence booster – I just love you! ((hugs))

I would love to read your thoughts...
