Think about the life you dreamed of when you were a child.  How different is it from the life you have now?  What changed to make you want something different?  What didn’t you know then that you know now?  If you could have the life you wanted as a child, would you trade your current life for that life?

Think about those things that your friends and family tease you about or object to about you.  Are those traits changeable?  Are they worth changing?  What would your life be like if you changed that about yourself?  Would it make things better or worse?
