Be the person you want to be

Who do you want to be? Why aren’t you that person already?

All of us have an internal image of the person we are. I’m a 12 year old geek girl who somehow inhabits a 50 year old women’s body. I’m always surprised when I find out I’m the adult in the room.

Beyond that I like to think of myself as a compassionate, loving, interesting person. I’m not always this person. Sometimes I am. Sometimes I am not.

I find that the closer the real me is to the me I imagine myself to be, the happier I am. I suspect this is true of most people. To be happy, I need to make an effort to be the ideal version of me, even when it’s difficult to do so.

So who do you imagine yourself to be? What are you doing to make sure that you are that person most of the time. Even when it is difficult and you are stressed?

I find that practice helps. Reminding myself when I am frustrated that aspire to be a compassionate loving interesting and interested person helps me to manifest those qualities when I need them most.

Embrace your ideal you. Remind yourself often of who you want to be. And actively choose to be that person in times of stress. You’ll be glad you did.
