That Person...

I want to be that person who always has fresh flowers in her home (and doesn't let them die).

I want to be the person who follows through her goals and ideas.

I want to be the person who doesn't complain about a bad situation, but does something about it.

I want to be that person who is not too proud to sincerely apologize.

I want to be that person who doesn't care so much about what she weighs and how she looks.

I want to be that person who doesn't let a kind gesture, invitation, or gift go without a phone call or a thank you note.

I want to be that person who wakes up at 5 AM, works out for an hour, makes her bed, reads her scriptures, takes a shower, and is ready for the day by 7 AM. 

I want to be that person who never shows up to dinner empty handed.

I want to be that person who doesn't miss the opportunity to express to someone how their kindness or words influenced her for the better.

I want to be that person who always thinks before she speaks.

I want to be that person who doesn't let others' perceptions or opinions prematurely sway her own.

I want to be that person who doesn't give confidence to stereotypes.

I want to be that person who can always be counted on to keep her word. 

I want to be that person who people feel comfortable with asking a favor or helping hand. 

I want to be that person that people trust and aren't afraid to be honest with.

I want to be that person who is cultured and frequently visits museums, the theater, the symphony and the ballet. 

I want to be that person who always keeps her car and house clean and in order.

I want to be that person who doesn't procrastinate, is organized and put 110% into each task she's assigned.
