Creating Mrs. Ibarra

My favorite jiu jitsu author and fellow blogger Mark Johnson wrote something the other day that really got me to thinking, reflecting, contemplating.  It was a blog post he called “Creating Mark Johnson”.  Check it out here.  So if I could rebuild myself, make myself a better version of what I am already, what would that look like?  So I made my two lists.  So Mark, here goes…

What I am…
Moderately fit 45 year old woman
Happily married
Mother to Emily and Ben
Daughter and Sister and Friend
BJJ Blue belt
Student of Muay Thai who is afraid to spar
Blogger and aspiring writer
Someone who believes in the good in others
Sometimes controlled by my irrational fears

What I want to be…
Extremely fit 45+ chick
Still happily married
Awesome Mom to Emily and Ben
Open, honest and trusted Daughter and Sister and Friend
The best BJJ Blue belt I can possibly be
Fearless student of Muay Thai
Successful blogger and freelance writer
Someone who will never stop believing in the good in others
Someone who is not controlled by fear

p.s. if you haven’t already done so, check out Mark’s two books on Amazon -- Jiu Jitsu on the Brain and his new book Borrowing the Master’s Bicycle (which I am reading right now).  Good stuff people!
