HELLO FRIENDS

Greetings my respectable friends in this amazing community. I hope we are all wonderfully well and having a tremendous day.

This is my participation post for the "Steemit Engagement Challenge S3:W4 - Three things I'd change about myself, and three things I'd keep? Give Reasons." contest hosted by @steemindiaa

INTRODUCTION

It is clear to everyone that we are imperfect beings as we make mistakes, and wrong decisions but I tell you, "that it is okay to make mistakes". First, we must acknowledge ourselves and find a way to improve on ourselves and some of the aspects we do not want, which in turn makes us experienced people and conscious of our abilities.

Life on its own is filled with a lot of challenges and things we wish we could change or have done better, but I assure you today that the only thing you can change is yourself. Most times these changes don't cost a dime, they just require commitment and time.

So take a seat, get comfortable and probably a cold drink to chip as you go through my participation. I hope will like it.


THINGS ABOUT ME THAT I WOULD LIKE TO CHANGE TO BE A BETTER PERSON


Even as I would love to change these various trait of my life, I have made peace with myself as I believe that the first step to living a peaceful life is understanding that I am the only person in charge of my wellbeing. Therefore things I would love to change or do better are:

1. TO OPEN UP MORE

man-6612818_1280.jpgsource

My whole life I’ve been very much of an introvert, locked up in my own space, so shy and scared. Even as an adult, my daily routine is House-Work-House. The weekends are the worse as I barely leave the house. I could count this as a blessing too, as I’ve had the same friends from childhood to date, but that feeling is quite awkward as it takes a lot for me to open up with new people even to say a word sometimes is very difficult. I would always calculate all the scenarios of what would happen if I do this or that. I keep hoping I can be courageous enough to get out of my space and just become a little bit more open, accepting and outgoing.

2. STOP PROCRASTINATING SO MUCH

I guess being such an introvert comes with this automatically. I just can’t stop myself from procrastinating. Sometimes, I think I get worse as the years go by. I am always hesitating to seek help, go out or even speak to new people. If only I could work myself out of this, I could be more social. Within me, I think I have made a bit of progress as I get more involved socially this year than any other but I still could do more.

3. EAT MORE HEALTHY

Another trouble I seem to have. I barely eat two meals a day even when the food is available. I prefer snacks and junk to real cooked meals. I think I am the most unhealthy eater I know. If I could change this aspect I would be very much happier with myself. It is troubling as I could stay a full day without even having in mind I've not eaten.


THINGS ABOUT ME THAT I WOULD NOT WANT TO CHANGE AT ALL


1. BEING HAPPY IN LIFE

Everyone wants to be happy with themselves right? Of course, and I can gladly tell you that I am a very happy person. Being happy is presumably the most familiar life change that most people want. The crazy part is that this is about the easiest aspect of life because it is solely a psychological state.

Yes, your surroundings, predicament, or circumstances can impede it, but all this mentioned above impacts your happiness only as much as you let them. Be willing to rise above your circumstances, and focus on how you aspire to be, instead of what is going on around you.

2. MY LOVE FOR MY FAMILY

family-6398107_1280.webpsource

Family, a reasonably small but mighty word for me. It is said that we are alive in this world because we are living in a family, well this sounds true to me as I can’t imagine my life without them. My Mum is my very own superhero, the definition of superwoman, a very good homemaker. For my Nigerian friends here, "oh! the love choke 🤭". My Dad, the king of the family and my siblings will always be a part of my life even as I learn far from them. I wouldn't wish myself in another family.

3. BEING A NIGERIAN 🇳🇬

I know this kind of seems funny or crazy per se to my fellow Nigerians here but believe me, I wouldn't change my country Nigeria for another nation, especially being a Bayesian, where I go see this kind of fish chop with this freedom. Nigeria is a land filled with milk and honey. What natural resources are we not blessed with? you name it, am listening. From Minerals to manpower to farm products everywhere stew. No natural disasters to disturb us whatsoever. Our only problem right now is wrong leadership and mismanagement of our resources. Nigeria is a truly blessed nation if look from my point of view.

CONCLUSION

Changing one's life for considerable peace requires changing one's mindset to get that peace. Prioritise the good things, and where you want to in life. Hold a cognitive emphasis on enjoying and cultivating considerable peace in your life. Believe in yourself. Get a positive mindset, and keep it only then can life bring you a wonderful surging life. I’m hoping that this brings a lot of self-growth

Very true. Mine is more of hesitance to socialise. But am working on it. I could barely take photos of myself, let alone share. But I can do all that now, hopefully with time I will check this off my list.

I barely eat two meals a day even when the food is available. I prefer snacks and junk to real cooked meals. I think I am the most unhealthy eater I know.

This is really a problem that need immediate change, as it have a great effect on your wellbeing

Family, a reasonably small but mighty word for me. It is said that we are alive in this world because we are living in a family, well this sounds true to me as I can’t imagine my life without them

There is no doubt that family is everything in life. Without family, i cant imagine anyone having peace of mind.

You have actually written well dear friend. I wish you success in this challenge.

Thank you for your time. I very much appreciate this love.

Most definitely. Thank you🥰😍

😍😍😍👍👍

Greetings!!!!

Lovely post, but i am sad to read you did not care about your food, you preferred junk food might be you are addicted to that. But if you try to return over normal food you be okay very soon.
Shyness is the beauty of women. It depicts internal character of women.
Best of luck

Am working on the food aspects though, it just wont click. If shyness is for women, why am I this shy being a guy? I think its gender free cause i can say am more shy than some ladies I have seen.

Love for family ,responsible for family is a good thing ..keep it up

Thank you for you encouraging words. It gives me butterflies.

It's good that you can identify your weaknesses and strength, please you really need to work on eating healthy, you know your health matters a lot! You know you can overcome this with strong determination.
Ahh it's good to learn about things You will never change about yourself; being happy and loving one's family is of utmost importance, no wonder the sayings "family first" I wish you success in this contest!

Thank you for your time here, i hope its a time well spent?

STOP PROCRASTINATING SO MUCH

Honestly, procrastinating lead to the downfall of humans which is never a good option in life. Indeed I am happy that you wish to change such character in your life. Best of luck to you.

spending more quality time with family is really a good thing among us we should keep. Good luck with your contest entry. Have a nice day!

This love you've shown me is massive and I can not say thank you enough. Thank you

Hi bro.
I will hit hard on procrastination..it's a dangerous tool. If you could learn more to take actions while you can. It's going to be much better and lastly.
Family is gold I love my family as well and I don't think I can trade the connection for something else 😊

😍😍😍😍

Your posts is a beautiful one indeed. You have listed some of the things that you would love to change which include avoiding junks, been social and opening up as well as avoiding procrastination.

Being proud of Nigeria despite the challenges is very surprising but I appreciate your spirit of patriotism.

Goodluck!!

Challenges are ment build us. The issues with Nigeria is made by men or have you ever witness any earthquake or tsunami??

The issues with Nigeria is made by men

Very true. Our leaders are not helping matters. Apart from that, we are a blessed country.

That is it. Like steem price, we keep hoping for the best

Hola para mi es muy importante el amor por la familia, ser feliz en la vida te ayuda en muchos aspectos, hasta la transmite en otras personas, e inyectarle eso que tal vez ellos no tienen... Éxito en el concurso...

Thank you for you kind words.

Hello friend @sahmie, what a pity that it costs you so much to socialize, as being good friends is good, I hope you can overcome that, it is not that difficult, you just have to try, never change the love of your country and your family, your post is very good,

successes in
contest

Thank you very much. I am working hard on not been so shy any more. I will get there soon

It's a great milestone to consider your health status and try to eat better in order to achieve this. Of course you can do it by making a great perseverance. Have a good luck with your entry friend.

First it started as little as saying, I don't have appetite, now I beg for appetite. But I am working on it.

Family love is unconditional love, you would always have their support, care, love and prayer. I'm more like an introvert too because I don't go out but I easily make friends and blend when meeting new people. Try to be eating healthy please, one will get older than all these junks will not be of help to body.

Thank you. Will certainly do.
