365 Writing Prompts: A brand new you, effective tomorrow

Tomorrow is the first day of a brand new year. Tomorrow you get to become anyone in the world that you wish. Who are you? I you decide to stay “you” share your rationale.

I think I am happy with who I am, also my friends and relatives are quite contented with me, any kind of change would not be agreeable to them or me. After all I am doing just fine, why try to become someone I’m not.

To borrow my father’s words, “I do not want you to be upstarts, stay grounded, be proud of who you are and last but not least be proud to know your mother tongue, regardless of where you live.”

A new me will want new friends, new place to leave, new wardrobe, new vehicle, there’ll be so many unnecessary things I’ll have to accumulate and discard what I have already.

Above all I will have to have a new mind, it took me eons to develop this one.

I agree with Sir Edward Dyer(1543–1607):

My mind to me a kingdom is;

Such perfect joy therein I find

That it excels all other bliss

Which God or nature hath assign’d.

Though much I want that most would have,

Yet still my mind forbids to crave.

 

I press to bear no haughty sway,

I wish no more than may suffice,

I do no more than well I may,

Look, what I want my mind supplies.

Lo, thus I triumph like a king,

My mind content with anything.

 

My wealth is health and perfect ease,

And conscience clear my chief defence,

I never seek by bribes to please.

Nor by desert to to give offence.

Thus will I live, thus will I die,–

Would all did so as well as I!

Happy new year 2015 everyone, God bless us all!

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this post and for sharing the words of your father and Sir Edward Dyer.

    I like what your father shared: “…know your mother tongue, regardless of where you live.”

    All good wishes,

    robert
