24 qualities I'd like to have "instead of…"

Anne Jackson shared a post the other day with a bunch of qualities she wants to be “instead of” other qualities. She asked for us to share our lists in the comments, but might grew rather large, so I decided to post it here instead.

  1. Humble instead of proud
  2. Meek instead of arrogant
  3. Tutor instead of teacher
  4. Friending instead of meeting
  5. Reminding instead of inventing
  6. Encouraging instead of scaring
  7. Righteous instead of right
  8. Commenting instead of posting
  9. Grace instead of fairness
  10. Giving instead of getting
  11. Growing instead of changing
  12. Thankful instead of entitled
  13. Producing instead of consuming
  14. Caring instead of flirting
  15. Supporting instead of boycotting
  16. Committing instead of trying
  17. Gifts instead of rewards
  18. Initiating instead of procrastinating
  19. Responding instead of reacting
  20. Blessed instead of okay
  21. Sincere instead of authentic
  22. Close instead of far
  23. Smiling instead of not
  24. You instead of me

What’s on your list?
