Who Do You Wish To Become?

Jamie Ridler posts the question "Who Do You Wish To Become...?"

I am incredibly curious as to what some of the other bloggers have posted, but I am holding myself back! Not easy! What will they say? How do they handle this question?

It's a good one!

I think about it. Check my journal...go outside and look at the gorgeous full moon. Feed the stray cat. Check on bread dough rising in the kitchen. I realize...

My answer is simple.

I wish to become the best me that I can be.

And the best me isn't about being an artist, or writer, or [fill in anything]... It is about who I am without all those labels. It has been a difficult week. I didn't always have the best of me showing. I had an evening of "spinning out" as a beloved friend calls it.

But I "spinned out" incredibly well, and then bounced back from it with just as much....energy.

Perhaps this IS the best...I can be horrifying with amazing skill...or make something of incredible beauty...or cook with wild passion. It is all me.

The best of me is about pushing and gusto and reaching and trying and passion...and not worrying about the "right" punctuation.

I wish to become the best me that I can discover....and it will take my entire lifetime.

  1. Can I get an "AMEN"?!?!? Have to work on a different word than that, since I am NOT religious, but it just sounded good, so AMEN!!!!

    And, you do "spin out" really well, and so far, bounce back pretty good and quickly too!

    Oh and, I like the "you" that you are, right now!

  2. I like the idea - the best me - without the titles. As Lisa wishes for herself, so I wish for her also.

  7. I've had many years of 'spinning out',(love that phrase),I'm really glad to truly be back to the me that I always was, before spinning out.. and I love your definition.. "being who I am before the labels" which is getting to the core of who we are.
    As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you as well. Thanks for sharing, it was so helpful.
    Happy Independence Day to you!
