I wish....

I wish I didn't care so much what people think.
I wish my house was better decorated.
I wish friendships didn't make me question myself so much.
I wish I was more on the ball.
I wish my house was cleaner.
I wish I was more self confident.
I wish I was more type A, rather then type B
I wish I didn't forget things.
I wish I was more organized.
I wish I didn't get in trouble so much.
I wish I made more money.
I wish I fit in more.

Till Tomorrow

I wish you knew how amazing you actually are.

I agree with Alexis's comment. I think you are an amazing person. I am proud of the woman you have become. If you were all those things that you wish you were you wouldn't be you.

Am I an insensitive person?...I wish I cared what people think.
I wish my house weren't so tiny & simple.
I wish I had enough friendships to keep life interesting.
I wish I knew how to relax and be less "on the ball".
I wish it wouldn't bother me if my house were dirtier.
I wish I weren't so type A that I have trouble having fun.
Every time I forget things I worry about losing my mind (my Dad had dementia)
I wish I could be more carefree.
I think everyone wishes they made more money...I think I would put this wish at the TOP of my list.
I wish I fit in more...I dread the family Christmas party because I always feel like an outcast.
I wish I could afford to quit my job and spend every minute rescuing dogs.

Take care Jenn...we all have a wish list but it can't get us down. It's this sort of list that keeps us motivated, keeps us trying new things and keeps us striving to be the people we think we want to be (though really...those around us would be really upset if we were any different).

Love ya,

You are fantastic just the way you are! You probably don't realize how many of us wish we had more of your qualities :o) Not sure which I wish more:

I wish I had the patience that Jenn does with her children - even bright and early on a Monday morning.
I wish I could break into song at any given time without worrying what people think. I really love that about you!!! I've tried and when I do it, it's weird. When you do it, it makes me smile and want to sing along.
I wish I had a cool travel mug like Jenn too, by the way. It's fantastic - I went to Starbucks today to look for one but couldn't see any :o(
Have a great weekend!

I can't comment on most of these as I don't know how clean & decorated your house is and how organised you are etc...
But I'm sure those are truly not the most important things in your life that are worth feeling unhappy or troubled about.

What I do know after following your blog over multiple years I know you are a very spontaneous loving genuine person! That's why I keep coming back and I hope one day we can meet :)

I wish that we could get together this weekend so I could give you a great big hug and say, all will be well. Life can get so overwhelming some days and it is those days that we wish for those healthy things. :)

Hey Jenn, I think the same(sometimes different) thoughts about myself all the time. I thought I was the only one. You really are fabulous and, I personally like you just the way you are. Michelle
P.S. Thanks for raising great kids(Elliot couldn't love Lucas anymore than he does) and also thanks for the Color Wonder Book. It saved us a few times during vacation and got completed.
