TRUTHS ABOUT ME

Truths about me:
I am squeamish about bugs
I worry
I am a good friend
I am honest to others
I lie to myself
I get scared when I tell me the the truth
I am always grateful when I tell me the truth
I have to make theses changes or I am going to die a lot younger than I planned on
I love my husband more each day I am with him as if that is even possible
I love most music
I love honest people who really know how to be honest and do not placate you with lies
I have issues with my mom
I love my mom
I wish I had been a different daughter
Sometimes I wish I had followed the yellow brick road and gotten married at a younger age and gotten to have a family.
I believe I am number 2 instead of number 1
I wonder if my list will change after my trip to Israel
I want to be better than I am
I would love not having to work I would volunteer and do more things and see more things if I did not have a job
I wish I had more friends
I love the friends I have
I can be difficult
I feel that what I went through as a child , being made fun of etc.. allows me to be a more well rounded and more patient adult
I am not patient with myself
I dread my mother getting to a point where she can no longer take care of herself
I still wish my dad were around , he always had a way of making things better .. even at the worst of times..
The worst of times came when I lost my dad
Even more worst of times came when Steve battled cancer 6 months after dads death
The best of times came on our first road trip after Steve had cancer
The best of times came when Steve and I got married in November
The best of times are coming again as we go to Israel
Now will be the time to dust off and move in the right direction
This is my TRUTH LIST
Wish me well
Wish you well too

There's no dusting to be done, woman!

You're a shining woman. You glisten with hope and optimism. You will sparkle throughout your trip to Isreal.

"I have issues with my mom"

That is what mothers are for"

"I love my mom"

See above.

"I wish I had been a different daughter"

Childhood and adolesence is a time for making mistakes. We make up for it by forgiving our children (or any other young people in our lives).

"Sometimes I wish I had followed the yellow brick road and gotten married at a younger age and gotten to have a family."

THERE'S A YELLOW BRICK ROAD!!!! HOLY S__T! WHY DIDN'T ANYONE TELL ME EARLIER? Most who did go down this path don't necessarily regret it, but that doesn't mean the don't feel like gave up alot of other opportunities.

"I believe I am number 2 instead of number 1"

Simple. Find that SOB and kill'em.

"I want to be better than I am"

Life is about becoming better, not getting there.

"I would love not having to work I would volunteer and do more things and see more things if I did not have a job"

Simple. Find a job that let's you do and see more things. Less money = better life. I know, it sounds counter intuitive.

"I wish I had more friends"

Quality over quantity baby!

"I can be difficult"

I will let you in on a secret: 'nobody really likes nice people'.

"I feel that what I went through as a child , being made fun of etc.. allows me to be a more well rounded and more patient adult"

Really? Am I the only one that internalized all that nastiness and became bitter and sarcastic?

luv ya,

JD

What a great list Honi! I'm looking forward to you adding more as you uncover more wonderful things about yourself.

I laughed at "I have issues with my mom". Hee hee. Me too.

Love your list and can't wait to compare them when you get back (but only if you do another list.)

Hanlie said...

I was very touched by your list. You and Steve were in my dream last night. Strange!

Ann(ie) said...

This is such an impressive list, girlie. I think we would so be friends if you lived closer. I feel the same about most of these.

I saw your post about your mom. I am a New York Times bestselling author working on a new book about mother-daughter relationships and thought you might want to contribute. Please visit my page for details about submitting stories for Mom's Little Angel.
