Sounding like my words

Not written by me, but upon hearing it, I realized so much of it applies. They could have been my words.

“Two years ago, I was afraid of wanting anything. I figured wanting would lead to trying and trying would lead to failure. But now I find that I can’t stop wanting.

I want to fly somewhere in first class. I want to travel to Europe on a business trip. I want to get invited to the White House. I want to learn about the world. I want to surprise myself. I want to be important. I want to be the best person that I can be.

I want to define myself instead of having others define me. I want to win, and have people be happy for me, I want to lose and get over it. I want to not be afraid of the unknown. I want to grow up to be generous and big hearted, the way that people have been with me. I want an interesting and surprising life.

It’s not that I think I’m going to get all of these things, I just want the possibility of getting them. The possibility that things are going to change.”

  1. Kate – can I borrow this? It is SO me. And explains me better than I ever could.
