It's been a while since a TAG popped up around here - I love how a few questions can open a book about somebody. This is the 'Wishes TAG' centred around 6 little wishes, I tag you all to take a few minutes to think.
1. What do you wish you knew when you were younger?
Things always get better, when I was younger I would worry myself silly over the smallest things and my Dad would always tell me it'll be okay. As i've grown older I have learnt that not every good time sticks around, but nor does every bad times - life is made up of peaks and troughs, sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind.
2. Where do you wish you could live?
I'm pretty happy and grateful for my new place but if I could live anywhere it would be somewhere like New York for the city buzz or near a beach and the ocean, somewhere like Malibu for tranquility.
3. What is one thing you wish you could do?
I really regret not disciplining myself enough to learn to play an instrument, the piano, perhaps the guitar. Reading music is a skill I admire hugely and I wish that I could sit down with an instrument and follow the music.
4. What would you wish to be better at?
There's so many things day to day that I wish I was better at, at work and personally however, I would like to be better at trusting myself to get something right. I'm very quick to say I can't do something when actually I probably can.
5. What did you wish to become when you were little?
One of the first professions I can remember saying I wanted to try was forensic science, yep a little 7 or 8 year old me was going around telling grown ups that I want to be a forensic scientist. I really liked watching Midsomer Murders as a kid (never interested in The Tweenies) and liked the thought of getting to the bottom of why somebody had passed away. I soon learned I wasn't going to be clever enough to follow that path and later turned to wanting to be a novelist or magazine editor instead. I'm quite lucky that my job gives me the creative freedom to write everyday therefore I guess it was my calling.
6. What is your biggest wish
I really wish to be able to maintain a happy and healthy life surrounded by all of the good eggs in my life...With a cat of course.
