I’ve been seeing a lot of blog posts recently that are titled “(Insert number here) Qualities I’m Looking for In a Future Husband”. At first I loved reading them and thinking about what I desire in a future spouse, but now I cringe a little when I see one. Don’t get me wrong, I think it is wise to know what you what in a husband. However, it’s even more important to know who you want to be. You can’t control what qualities your future spouse may or may not have. It is something only God knows. The hard truth is that even if you do get married, you may still spend a good majority of your life single.
So here it goes:
Modesty is not really popular these days, but I think it is a real sign of beauty. I hope people see more of me then just the surface.
2) A sense of humor
One of my favorite things to do is laugh. I LOVE IT. Laughter brings so much joy. I have a long way to go until I’m funny, but my goal is to make at least one person laugh.
If I could do any job I wanted, it would probably be to travel the world. Adventure makes life exciting and even if I don’t live a crazy life, I don’t want to be afraid of trying new things.
This is a quality that I need to work on...especially if I’m going to be a middle school teacher. :)
In this world, it is really easy to be impulsive and make decisions based on feelings. I want to be thoughtful when I make decisions because I don’t want to have a lot of regrets down the road.
6) Desire to serve God
In my opinion this is one of the most important qualities on this list. I can claim to be a good person and do really great things, but without God I’m nothing.
From an early age I was taught the importance of giving to others. I love to make people happy and if I can make a difference in just one person’s life through generosity, I’ll be happy.
8) Multiple interests
Since I was little, I’ve jumped from hobby to hobby. I was one of those kids that did basketball, cheerleading, soccer, and dance all within of couple years. I just couldn’t make up my mind. I hope that down the road I will be encouraged to learn new things. Currently, I’m taking piano lessons (which has always been a goal of mine, I’m so excited!! :))
Life hardly ever goes according to how we planned it. My goal is to try and go with the flow when bad things come my way because if I don’t, life is going to be pretty stressful.
10) A good cook
I’m not the best cook, but I love food. I really want to be able to make food without burning it. Right now, I make a mean apple pie. :)
I know this list is a little unusual. Our culture has embraced the idea that to be complete, you need another person.Honestly, it still scares me to think that I’m might never get married. However, while I’m waiting to see what God has planned for me (whether it’s marriage or not) I’m excited to focus on who I want to be.
