I Want A Life Just Like This

People always ask me what I want out of life like it’s a simple question with a simple answer. It isn’t.

I want too many things that contradict each other. I want so much that my real answer would overwhelm them.

I want so badly to be happy. I want to be honest. I want to be proud of myself. I want to love myself.

I want to always remember to appreciate who and what I have. I want to live in the moment. I want to remember the past but not live there. I want to look to the future but not too much so that I forget to soak up every moment and every blessing I have around me.

I want to be the friend that people consider the “good friend.” I want to be appreciated and not taken for granted. I want what I give, given back to me in return. I want to not care about what I get in return, and only be a good person because that is what I’m supposed to be, because I like to be, because that is who I am.

I want to be the person who is always laughing. I want to be the person with the laugh that makes you laugh. I want laughter to keep me alive.

I want to be a person who is calm. I want to be motivated and ambitious and accomplished.

I want to stand for something. I want to inspire people. I want to lift up and support every single person around me.

I want to not have a jealous or bitter bone in my entire body. I want to love everyone as much as I can, and for as long as I can. I want to do it without fear, and I never want to question it.

I want to enjoy myself. I want to crave alone time and the presence of only myself. I don’t want to have to have the TV on in the background or music playing through my earbuds to distract me.

I want to be happy in the silence. I want to revel in it.

I want to be truly, and entirely, at peace.

    You have managed nicely listing everything I’ve ever wanted to be. Literally didn’t stop nodding my head the whole time I was reading. Sometimes I wish it was possible to purchase some sort of package deal for personality. Unfortunately we still have to work super hard to achieve every single thing. 😦 πŸ˜€

    Do you have any blog post tips for beginner bloggers?🌼

    Liked by 1 person

    1. Scattered Scripturient says:

      TBH I only started blogging two weeks ago. I used to write for a website though so I think that gave me a jump start with a little more experience. But my advice is make sure your blog looks perfect. I go to a lot of blogs and see that they are unfinished… like text widgets in the corners that say “this is a text widget” so yeah just make sure you don’t have anything like that. Come out with really good content that you personally love to write about. Write from your heart and be completely honest. Also triple check your work and make sure there are no errors. Not many people want to read something with a bunch of misspelled words. And lastly, how I got noticed so quickly was, after I did all the things I listed above, I went to the first Friday blog page on here specifically for new bloggers and I copy and pasted the link to one of my first blog posts and I got feedback on my entire blog and got extremely lucky by becoming and editors pick or if you’re not brand new go to the daily post page and to the community pool where you can also get feedback on your blogs. They’re very busy though with lots of bloggers trying to get feedback, so go there very often and every time they start a new community pool try and get your blog on there quick! I really hope that helps!
