the truth? you can’t handle the truth…

Gotta love A Few Good Men… Anyhow…

The truth is: I’m not static. I change. I adapt. I make do. I live up to what people think about me more than I should. However, I believe what I believe. I find that my views have started changing a lot more as I age though. I often try to let life teach me, but I’ve found that it is better to let God teach me instead.

The truth is:

My greatest desire is still to publish a book. However, I can’t get away from the fear of other people reading what I write.

I love the water. I still watch our fish swim and wish I could too.

I’m not sure I want to live in Europe anymore, but I’m starting to think about Alaska.

I definitely want to learn Latin.

Being in a tent in the woods is good for my soul. I want to go camping more.

My house is comforting to me.

Sometimes I feel like I am losing myself and the dreams I used to have.

I suck at adapting to new situations.

Poetry makes my heart sing. Robert Frost makes me all warm inside.

Music has abandoned me. A lot of times it makes me edgy.

Food is gross. I don’t understand people who take pleasure in it.

Morning always comes too soon.

I feel uneasy about the fact that I don’t feel like I need to diet or exercise. I like my body. However, I sometimes feel like I should act like I don’t in order to fit in.

I’m utterly and completely insecure.

My confidence seems to be disappearing day by day.

I’m scared of thunderstorms.

I’m also scared of crowds.

I play World of Warcraft. And I’m not ashamed of it.

Sometimes I feel like I can’t feel enough.

I still like tequila and beer.

I have trust issues.

My kids are wonderful, but I fear losing my identity because I’m a mom.

I need my friends.

My husband and I don’t fight.

Being passive aggressive makes me angry, but I can’t do anything about it because I’m passive aggressive.

I think that might be enough for tonight, but this feels good. I had forgotten how great it feels to define myself out loud. I might do this again soon. Maybe next time I’ll post all new truths, but I felt like a comparison would be fun for tonight. If you feel so inclined, I would encourage you to write your own list of truths and post it to your blog… and then let me know. I’d love to get to know my friends and even people I don’t know very well a little better.
