Have you ever had someone you looked up to, who has ultimately disappointed you by being contrary to how they appeared?
Like my high school teacher, who I thought was a wonderful Christian woman, a person I aspired to be. Then a few years later, ran away and left her young son and had an affair.
But the most recent one is my great Aunt. I had always looked up to her, learnt quilting because she did...
Then she came up from her country town just before Christmas. I have discovered she is a very critical, negative person.
I asked my mum if she had been always like this, or it was just her getting old. Apparently she has always been like that, I just hadn't noticed (as I was young when I last met her for longer than an hour).
So this has made me think, what kind of person I want to be.
I want to be a positive person, someone who finds the best in things.
This is one of my new projects (not a resolution) for the new year and into the future
