A few things I wouldn’t change

25 Jun

A few months ago a friend asked me what I would change about myself if I could.  I got to thinking about that again today but decided to change my thinking and list a few things that I wouldn’t change before I post the things I would change.

A few things I wouldn’t change about myself would be:

  • My taste in men (I got a pretty good one)
  • My strength as the communicator.  I feel comfortable talking in front of people, which, incidentally is what many people would say is something they hate
  • My ability to sing
  • My feet
  • My freckles
  • My ability to manage a classroom full of 35 adolescent, hormonal teenagers
  • My ability to relate almost any situation to a Friends quote
  • My story-telling ability.  (Most stories start with “one time when I was in the 4th grade.”  It was a big year for me)

This was a bit hard because for almost everything I just wrote, I thought of a way I could improve it, but that wasn’t the point of this post.

If you read this, COMMENT!! Tell me 2 things you wouldn’t change about yourself.

    You’re so funny…I would think it would be much harder to do it your way, since we are usually our own worst critics. For me, the two things I would not change are my strength in getting through tough times (God-given strength of course), and my mad Scrabble skills. 🙂

    I would not change that I like people, I like helping them, I like filling “love tanks.”
    I would not change the fact that I love to read books and really love to sit with my kids as we all read together. But does that make me lazy??? IDK 🙂

    This post is great! So uplifting and a great way to end the week.

    I wouldn’t change my smile or my need to be around people.

    I love that you have your feet on the list. thats not something you see everyday. I gotta say I had a hard time picking 2 things I wouldn’t change cause there are so many things I would change. but I finally got two 1st I wouldn’t change my ability to make almost anybody giggle about every time I see them and 2nd I can pull a movie quote out to fit almost any situation. weather I say it out loud or not I got one. pretty lame things but thats what I got. 🙂

    I love your freckles, too!

    I wouldn’t change my patience for others who don’t learn as fast as me and I wouldn’t change my smile.

    Good Question Becca. I love good questions!! 🙂

    First two things that came to my mind:

    1.) I would not change the fact that I cry easily. I remember getting embarrassed when I was younger b/c I would cry when I would share from my heart or when I heard other people share. I wished I could make the tears stop, but then I realized God made me that way. :)… and it’s a good thing.

    2.) My smile. I like it. 🙂

    I love your list! Your Friends quoting is so true! 🙂
    I would not change my desire to love on and inspire my students & the fact that I am Asian (It took me 20 years to be ok with that!)
