What would you be before your distant end?

One of my favorite bloggers just posed an interesting question.  Rather than listing five things you would like to do before you die, what are five things you would like to be before you die?

Here’s the post, if you’re curious:

I thought this sounded like an excellent writing prompt.  Thinking of things to do can be useful and great, however actions and tasks usually have an ending and being something doesn’t have to.  I’ve been thinking a lot about who I really am lately, and I’ve been disappointed with the results.  So who would I like to be?  Setting my course toward that so that I can become a better version of me is something I’m working on.

 

5 things I’d like to be before I die

To be known as a writer and make a good portion of my income from it

To be a far better artist than I am, as good as some of my favorite artists

To be someone who lives mindfully and thinks before every action

To be someone who contains both compassion and strength

To be fit in both mind and body – meditating and exercising daily

 

 

There are my five.  Do you have any you’d like to share?
