I have a friend who likes to tell me, “It isn’t always about you!” Often times I feel like that phrase needs to be reflected back at him but sometimes he is right. I am making this post ALL ABOUT ME!
I think being clumsy is charming. – Probably because I am the clumsiest person in the world and all the greatest romances begin with one clumsy moment.
If I had to pick my own prison it would be a library. – I love to read whether it’s junk mail, the warnings before a movie, the entire side effects list on birth control pills it doesn’t matter. String a bunch of words together and I will read it.
I love scary movies. – Scary not gory, I want to be frightened not grossed out. I love everything about them. I secretly rewrite most of the scary films in my head to make the story line better or make it scarier. I believe most scary films start out great and end up ridiculous but I am in it for the experience and for the ideas it fills my head with.
I am a sucker for underdogs. – Geek turns hot throb. Ugly duckling becomes swan. Lowly employee takes over the company. I love Marshall Mathers, Maddona Ciccone, Stefani Germanotta. Stories like “Can’t Buy Me Love”, “In The Pursuit of Happyness”. There are underdogs living extraordinary lives everyday.
I love people. – In “We Bought a Zoo” one of the characters asked, “If you had to choose between people and animals, who would you pick?” Wouldn’t we all pick people? I mean we can express creativity in so many ways, it is endlessly fascinating. We do things to our hair, our nails, our skin, we can dress in an endless variety of ways. Our personalities are creatively expressed in the words we choose, how loud we speak, how passionately we converse. WE ARE AMAZING….ALL OF US!
I am loyal. – It is hard for me to move on sometimes when a friend moves or a company closes it’s doors. I still miss the Chinese Restaurant I drove out of my way to visit when I was younger.
I love laughter. – I am not talking about the snickering kind behind someones back or the kind that is at the expense of another. I am talking about the kind that heals even the most broken of hearts, that turns dark times bright, the kind that penetrates to the heart of the worst kind of anger and turns it into hope.
I love to cook. – I am not good at it but I love to do it. My husband will eat anything so I am lucky. Best random creation. I stir-fry Brussel sprouts in butter and chicken bouillon then add to scrambled eggs 🙂
Ok even I am getting bored thinking about myself, I can only imagine how you readers feel! Seriously though, take a few moments and do a self inventory. Who are you? What do you believe? How do you want those beliefs to play out in your life? Take time every now and then to make it ALL ABOUT YOU!
