3x Thursday

List the 3 most important things in your life, and why they are important to you.

My family, because they remind me of who I was, help me to be who I am, and encourage me to be who I am striving to be. That may be ridiculously optimistic, but at the end of the day, I’m grateful for my family, each member, in their diversity and the strength they give me.

The option to have a creative outlet, because life can’t be all work and no play. I really like being productive, but homework isn’t always fun. So when I need to relax, I can sit on the couch and embroider or knit while watching TV, and get the best of both worlds. Creative outlets also give me a chance to use a different part of my brain than other activities I engage in.

Change. Knowing that my life isn’t always going to be exactly as it is now is really… hopeful and important to my well-being. It’s not that I’m unhappy with my life as it is, but that there are aspects that I wish were different, many of which I’m actively working to change (like my job). The idea that the future will be different, even if it’s not different in the way I have planned, is awesome, because it means unlimited possibilities. I love that I live in a day and age when there are so many options available to me.
