#6 – A picture of a person you’d love to trade places with for a day

I really do try not to revel in discontent. I accept who I am, I accept the circumstances I’m in, I accept the blessings God has given me, and even the hardships I accept. But I’m only human, and humans aren’t infallible. To be someone else for a day would mean a release from the everyday humdrum of my life.

So… who would I choose? Well, that’s easy. I want to be someone famous. However, here comes the not-quite-easy part: which famous person do I want to be for a day? The first people who came to mind were:

  1. Emma Watson (who plays Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter movie franchise) because she gets to be a wonderful actress and model, hang out with Daniel Radcliffe and still she’s smart enough to be accepted to Brown University.
  2. Kristen Stewart (Bella Swan from the Twilight Saga) because, unlike other girls, she has a devil-may-care attitude with how she looks. She’s like a rocker inspiration for me.
  3. Dakota Fanning, just in principle because she’s roughly my age and already successful.

It’s very difficult to choose, I know. And quite selfish, actually. I know it’s just going to be for a day and everything, but there’s a selfish part of me that wants more. All those people I’ve listed above were famous and successful from a very young age. I see a good role model in Emma, a good fashion guru in Kristen, and I see what I could’ve been in another universe (I doubt it, but humor me) in Dakota.

Yes, I want to be successful someday, but wouldn’t it have been better if I come to that myself? Just me and plain ol’ elbow grease.

So in conclusion, if given the chance to be someone else for a day, I’d like to be myself. Albeit, an older, richer, more well-known and successful version of myself.
