What do you want to be in 2012?

01 Jan

A few days ago, while filing receipts for my first tax return I came across something unexpected and it made me smile. It was a list I’d written and forgotten, from the beginning of 2011. I wrote it during a training course, we were asked to consider ‘who we are’ but I listed what I wanted to be too. Some aspirations are achievable like being on time, having a real fire or being alive. But I also had some unachievable aspirations – wanting to be Regina Spektor, Doctor Who’s Assistant and an eagle. Achievable or not, what you want to be is part of who you are. What do you want to be in 2012?

    Is it too lame if I just say happy? I like that you’ve got Creator on your list. There are so many things that I’d like to create. Maybe in 2012 I’d like to be a green fingered, writing yarn bomber.

    Achievable: Be a tourist in Edinburgh, I’ve been here for seven years and I’ve never taken the time to do it. I used to see Edinburgh as a stop gap, but I’ve realised lately that Edinburgh is home now so need to think of it more as such.

    Not so achievable: Own & work in a wee corner shop in a country village.
