This is an exercise that popped into my head while I was trying to work on my last project of the Fall semester. I thought I should share it with you because it was really helpful to me see these all these things that I've wanted (and most I've never reached) and compare them to what I now know about myself.
What I’ve wanted to be
What I am not
I could go on, but you get the point.
Sometimes the ideas in our brains don't match our chemistry, biology, or even our true passions. For some, these dreams never die and are worth the pursuit. But for many, like myself, they will die with the phase and another will be born.
There is nothing wrong with wanting to be something you can work toward.
This is an exercise to remind us that such glam ideas that the world says are awesome, only look that way on the surface. In reality, they wouldn't make us happy.
These achievements may not be part of God's plan.
I encourage you to try this as well and see where it takes you. Perhaps your wishes and your reality don't match up. Or maybe they do and you just need to break down your goals. Whatever the case, let me know if this was helpful!
