If I Could Change One Thing About Myself

We all have flaws, don’t we? And the sooner you realize that, the better it is for you. But what is that one thing which you want to change about yourself? Ask me that and may be I could list out many. Is it my temper? My impulsiveness? Me being over dramatic? Or is it my innocence of trusting people so easily? Well, yeah. I wish I could change the latter-that I could judge people for who they are. However, I trust my intuitions. And it is not this that I’m talking about today.
I’m someone who is dedicated and committed when it comes to work. You give me some task to complete and I will make sure that it is done before the deadline. Not for the sake of it, but to the best of my abilities. There were times when I hadn’t even got up from my seat for nine hours of my shift and by the end of the day, I was overwhelmed. I was on a high. Of course, things like these have taken a toll on my health but I do not regret even a bit. That’s how I am and I’m glad when someone trust me with an important task.
But when it comes to my personal goals, I get all jittery. Why couldn’t I continue my passion for dancing? Why is it that I enrolled for an MBA course and didn’t care enough to complete it? Why do I start something with full josh and enthusiasm and forget about it even before I’m half way through? Like cycling, gym, morning walks or diets? Ain’t I not passionate enough? I understand that it takes will and courage to find a way and beat all odds. Because I’m good at it. But, Alas!
I’m taking conscious efforts these days to improve my so-called inability to complete my personal goals. Thanks to my dancing shoes, I feel genuinely happy from inside. I feel positive and I am starting to complete few important things in life like the campaigns I enrol my blogs with, or my B.Ed degree (which I never thought I would).
I wish I could stick with this and believe in myself. So what is it that you want to change about yourself?

  7. Well, I know everyone should treasure their talents and not complain about their deficiencies. However, if I could change one thing about myself, it would be to become a fluent speaker – in another language. I speak 4 languages fluently, I’m considering learning another language may be arabic, it would be to have a “silver tongue”.

    I know that feeling of excitement when we are beginning something new, but it all fizzles out so soon, the curiosity fades soon, that we leave the work halfway.. I know that…so many times .. so so many times.. Sticking to the task inspite of everything is the toughest..

    I like how you are at least being upfront about what you need to change. People make excuses for the habits. I wish you all the best on all the changes you plan on making 😀 As for what I could change about myself, so much. I think I’ll need to buy a book and start writing. 😉

  23. I loved this post Shalini.So honest and beautiful. Yes, we all have flaws. Sometimes we are so committed to something and there are times when we just give up. I think that is what makes us human. But we need to make efforts to change. That is important.
