Know Thyself 1 | A Personal Growth Exercise

I was down the Pinterest rabbit hole last week and I found this… (not sure what to call it) prompt? post? Anyway, it’s called a personal growth exercise. I found the questions interesting and I would like to see how I’d respond to them. So it was posted by Misty Sansom. It has 25 questions and I’m gonna answer in three parts because I didn’t want it to be too long. Here’s the photo…

1. What does your ideal day look like?

My ideal day would be waking up early, like around 6AM (which never happens ’cause I sleep really late), get a nice workout in, have breakfast. Get some work done (girl’s gotta earn some moola). Head to the beach and wait for sunset. Lovely dinner with the people I love. Sneak in some TV or reading time. Lights off.

2. What did you want to be when you were younger?

A lot of things. I wanted to be a famous actor even though I couldn’t act to save my life. I wanted to be a doctor or a journalist. None of those things happened. πŸ˜€

3. Who are you most inspired by? Why?

My parents. I just really, really, really want to make them happy. Everything I’m doing right now I’m doing for them and I pray it works out.

4. Who would you love to meet? What would you ask?

God. I know this is too much to ask. But just… there are a lot of things I want to understand that only he/she could explain.

5. What habit would you most like to break? What habit would you most like to start?

I would like to stop procrastinating. This has been my problem my entire life. Seriously, if breathing weren’t involuntary, I would’ve died years ago. I even procrastinate on stopping my procrastinating habit. It’s a disease. I would like to start being more positive, if that counts as a habit.

6. Think of a person you truly admire. What qualities do you like about that person?

One of the persons I admire is my older brother. I know he’s not perfect. I am completely aware of his shortcomings but his heart for his family is just something so… remarkable. I admire his spirit and determination. It’s something I wish I had and something I’m striving to have.

7. How do you like to relax?

Flick through channels on TV or watch feel-good, no-brainer shows like Spongebob Squarepants. And have a Spa Day. My favorites… manicure/pedicure, foot and head massage. πŸ™‚

8. When was the last time you did something you were afraid of?

July 16. Danced in public. Context: I dance but not when it’s not required. Hahaha! I always thought I’d only dance in a club with a gun to my head or if I’m drunk AF. Surprisingly, that night, I danced completely sober. Yay! Achievement unlocked! I don’t know what it was, maybe I was too happy or it could’ve been my makeup or the dress. I’d never know but I’m glad I did! πŸ™‚

9. What are you most proud of?

I used to say I’m proudest of having once published my stories through a local publishing. But right now, I want to say that I’m proud that I’m trying. Again. That I’m trying to make something of myself. Even if it’s uncertain and it’s terrifying. I’m proud that I’ve had a couple of good days lately, even my okay days outnumber my terrible days for now. Most of all, I’m proud that I feel somewhat sane.

***

Indeed, it’s been fun answering and reflecting on these questions. Excited to answer questions 10 through 17 next! πŸ˜€ Please look out for it. Or not. Whatever works! πŸ™‚ If you see this, thank you for clicking and taking time to read my post! Hope you have a lovely day.
