So I am hoping, with this post, that I will tell you all who I'd like to be, but probably won't be, and then like Tracy, I'll start working towards making those things a reality. Maybe. We'll see. Like reverse psychology, hopefully.
1. The opposite of a shopaholic.
I have had shopping issues since I started making money at 15. Shopping makes me happy. I don't want it to, but it does. If you gave me x amount of money and told me to go shopping, I wouldn't think twice about all the things I could buy.
2. A person with a capsule wardrobe.
Shopping might make me happy but looking into a closet full of crap I don't like and don't wear is getting old fast. I'm not sure if I will ever have a legit capsule wardrobe, I just want a wardrobe full of things I like and actually wear.
3. A marathoner.
I can barely run 13 miles let alone 26. You crazy. I don't know.. maybe, one day. I want to master the half before I go on to the full. If I go on to the full.
4. A vegetarian.
I don't particularly like meat. We never have beef or pork at home, I don't love the taste of chicken. Turkey (ground / mince) is ok but I can survive without it. I'm positive I could eat vegetarian at home all the time, it's when I go out that's the problem. Sometimes I want a greasy whopper after a night out. Sometimes I like chik fil a sandwiches. Ignore the fact that I'm not supposed to eat the buns either of those sit on, that's not the point right now. My friend's dad owns a restaurant and he makes this koobideh (ground beef) that I absolutely love... If I ever go home again, I want to eat meat pies and sausage rolls and everything my mum makes. So I'm kinda scared to be a vegetarian, I guess. I think of it as 'I don't want to put myself in a box I can't get out of'. I already have dietary restrictions, why add more? But I know the benefits to being a vegetarian, and they are the results of omitting meat but also because of an increase in plant based foods. So I don't know where I am going with this.
|i actually really love salads...|
This goes hand in hand with shopping. I'm also super sentimental and it's hard for me to let go of stuff - dresses that don't fit anymore and never will but I can't part with them because I wore them once and loved them... Just random crap all over the house. I hate the 'want more, want bigger' mentality but sometimes it's easy to get caught up in it. But I would like to at least get to a 'minimalish' lifestyle, not quite tiny home living, but just not any bigger and without all the stuff that we don't really need.
Here's hoping the reverse psychology works and soon I'm a vegetarian minimalist with a capsule wardrobe but no shopping addiction who is training for a marathon. Maybe?
Anything you want to be but probably never will be?
