If I Had a Magic Wand, What Would You Change About You?

Fairy  If I had a magic wand, what would you ask me to change about yourself?


How many of you read it and either thought I wouldn’t change anything or felt some fear run through your body?


How many thought to yourself “yeah, yeah tried that and didn’t even last 3 months”.

When in the darkest place throughout my depression, the professionals helping me made me look in some very hard places within me and some were definitely not pretty.  It made me feel uncomfortable.  It challenged me.  It gave me insight of who I was and who I wanted to be.  I searched for different types of therapy that helped fit all the puzzle pieces together.  Now well into recovery I would have to say that I would not change my journey in anyway as I am such a better person than what I was before it started.

People think that personal development is what we do in careers, to find our ultimate career path.  Personal development is all about you.  No matter what your situation is, you can make your life better.  If I didn’t start to realise the importance of personal development, I would honestly be six foot under by now.  I would not have had any drive to reaching out for help when I had my suicide plan in action.  Have you ever made a new years eve resolution?  That is all about personal development but very few of us ever keep these resolutions long term.

A lot of people feel a sense of fear when thinking about making changes to themselves.  They feel that they will not be able to do it successfully. They think that they do not have the time.  They think that others things are more important.

Why accept anything less than what you want?

I know as a mum of children with Autism and Sensory Processing Disorder there are a lot of demands on parents.  But I also know that I need to continue to meet my dreams so that I am a better mum for the girls and a better wife. I don’t want to accept anything less than what I deserve.
