Are you who you want to be?

I want to be better with my time. I want to spend more time with my family, not just be home physically. That’s just being present but not really being there. I want to put in my 10,000 hours and be good with my guitar. I want to hone my craft and be better at editing. I want to learn more about editing by doing a diverse range of work. I want to finish my story. I want to read more, see more and understand better. I want to earn more money and accquire more material possessions. (Yes I know that it’s just more stuff that I have no space for.)

Though, I know all that. I recognise that I am not forwarding myself on some of those fronts. I would like to think that knowing and acknowledging that fact is a step forward in and of itself. It’s hard but necessary. And with recognition of this fact, I hope I would move out of my comfort zone and pursue the things I want on all fronts. For me, the first step forward is my guitar lessons.

Are you the person you want to be? Are you doing anything to become that person? Food for thought.
