Someone I would like to switch lives with for a day and why

Well, the classic thing I would have said is ‘nah, I’m fine just being me’. But that would be a lie, worse than the lie of “I have read and accept all the terms and conditions”(no one ever really reads all that). At some point in our lives we’ve looked at someone and wished we had their lives. The grass always seems greener on the other side, doesn’t it?

Someone I’d like to switch lives with for a day would be one of my senior friends, Shikah. She’s super cool and she seems to be able to have everything under control. She doesn’t allow petty things get to her- she can care less for Africa!

She doesn’t like to be put in a box; she constantly pulls down labels people try to place on her. She’s opinionated but also very fast to learn. She’s courageous enough to pursue her dreams and I always wonder how she does it!

I like how she makes everyone happy (at least her friends and family). She’s an amazing listener and always has wisdom nuggets suitable for different situations (no, she’s not 60 but she’s wise like that-lol)

Plus, switching lives with her for a day means I get to sleep without worrying about everything. I get to be there for all my friends at the point where they need me. And I also know when to close the doors for a ‘me’ time, coiled up with a book and a snack bar.

So yeah, if I could switch lives for a day, it’d be with her (though I’m pretty sure that she would frown at the thought of coming back to work) 

There are certain people we consciously or unconsciously would like to switch lives with for a day or more. Some people say stuffs like ‘If only I had her life’ or ‘why can’t I be like this other person who has everything easy going?’ Truth is, these other people are equally going through their own different struggles. You never know where the shoe pinches until you try to walk in them. If you’re one who doesn’t fully love your life and always wishes to switch lives with someone else, reality check hun! The grass may seem greener on the other side, but the thorns may be sharper too. Accept who you are and love everything about you. Of course, there is the place to admire and appreciate others but don’t sulk because you haven’t got what they’ve got going on. There are some burdens you can never carry, believe me!

It’s always my desire that you live victorious lives! 🙂

Day 24 down, 7 more to go.

Yes we can!
