In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “New Skin.”
What an interesting question. I think I would do it for one day just to see what it would feel like to be someone different. I would want to spend the day as a man. To see whether there the sexes do get different treatment.
So much changes in one year. Last year I turned 40 and I felt like I grew into myself. Everything that has happened in my life has shaped me. I’m a twin so to become a new person for a year would mean I would be losing the very essence of who I am. What would it be like to be someone who has never experienced loss even for one day? I don’t think I would want to be that person. They have never had struggle, pain, compassion, growth. My friends have said I’m an inspiration. That they are proud of how strong I am. Why would I want to give that up to be someone else?
Today is the first day of a brand new year. So many possibilities. I don’t really do resolutions but I know that this is a year where I will make myself a priority. Have fun. Dare to dream.
