5 Things I Want To Be When I Grow Up

The words of a 41-year-old, perpetual seeker

1.     Wise

When you seek to understand and give up on being right... When you accept situations, people and circumstances for what they are... When you let go of outcomes... there is wisdom. Your best asset, your most dangerous weapon and one of the few things no one can take away.

2.     A Badass 

Looking back on my past it’s become apparent that I have a whole lot more hell to raise. There are so many status quos that require opposition and far too many rules that don’t make sense. I look forward to upping my fearless game in the near future.

3.     Powerful

Margret Thatcher said it best. “Being powerful is like being a lady. If you have to tell people you are, you aren’t.” I’ll drink to that!

4.     Better

Better than I was yesterday. Better at staying in contact with people I think about but never call. Better at saying no to comfortable situations that no longer serve me. Better at making gumbo and fried anything. Better at not giving a f***k. Better at organizing my time. Better at waking up early. Better at speaking up. Better at shutting up. Better at making decisions. Just better. 

5.     Loved

Being loved is like waking up without an alarm clock on a day that starts a week where all you have to do is be yourself. That sounds like a vacation but vacations require planning. The only requirement to being loved is to be everything you are.
