No it’s not about reincarnation.
Screenage Scribblings tagged me on things I would want to change about my past and myself. This is going to be a hard one because, even though over the years I have often talked about changing things from the past, I have reached a stage in my life where I believe that it’s all those experiences that have made me who I am today and I wouldn’t want to change those.
However, I’ll see if I can try.
- My weight: Definitely been an issue for me. I was a plump baby, and average kid, a plump teenager, an over-weight college going girl and then lost oodles of weight through going to the gym before coming to Australia. And now, I back on the plump front. Dammit! If there was one thing I could change, it would be that I remained at an average weight. I don’t want to be
skinny (I like curves). But I wish I could eat without worrying about the weight I will be putting on. I love my food and hate walking. (Agreed…probably need to hit the gym again)
Playing sport: If there’s one thing I wish, it’s that I could have played sport while growing up. I never got the chance. If I could go back now, I would love to join a cricket or football team and play for my school or even a club. That opportunity didn’t exist when I was going to school. We didn’t have a girl’s cricket or football team back then. The only sports for girls were basketball (being 5 feet tall doesn’t help for that game!) and badminton (meh!)
My public speaking abilities: If I could, I would go back to the 11 year old that used to be fearless but then let one experience scar her public speaking abilities and push her to participate and not worry about what others think.
And that’s all I got! Sorry SS, but I am okay with the person I am today and believe that all the negative experiences have made me the person I am. Even though I’ve written the above few things, if they had happened, I may not be the person I am today.
Who knows — if I had played cricket and loved it — I probably wouldn’t be a child and adolescent psychologist today. Had the above three occurred, I would be a sports journalist on telly today! 🙂
So what about you? Would you like to change anything or any experience you have had in life so far? If you had to live it all over again, what would you do? I tag anyone that wants to take this tag on.
Until next time,
