Have you ever imagined what it would be like to be the star of your own T.V. show? The thought came to mind recently out of the blue. Imagine what it would be like for even just a day to have every moment of your life captured on video and broadcast for anyone that would like to watch.
Would you do anything differently?
I'm pretty sure that I would.
I would spend less time getting frustrated over the things I can't control and more time laughing.
I would smile more.
I would cook from scratch more.
I would spend less time trying to pluck out my gray hairs and trust my kids when they say they aren't very obvious.
I know we're not supposed to care what others think, but I do. And I think most people do. And because of this, I would spend less time in my pajamas all day.
I would spend less time on the computer and more time on the floor, playing with my kids.
I would take more time to tuck each of my kids in at night, to read them stories and sing them songs and look them in the eyes and tell them that I love them. Even the teenagers.
I would make time to visit the hairdresser more often (more than once every year or so).
I would actually buy clothes for myself when I go shopping.
I would speak more positively of myself around my kids and less negatively about others.
I would be more insistent that my teenage daughters wear their bike helmets even if it means they will "look like crap" at school.
I would be a better wife, mother, sister, aunt, cousin, leader, friend.
I would still sing at the top of my lungs whenever I wanted.
And I would still bust out my crazy I-can't-dance-moves like no one was watching.
Because not even being on national television would stop that.
