I have always been comfortable with me. Are there things that I want to work on? Absolutely. Do I let what other people's perceptions of who I am, or who I should be determine what I want to work on?
Owning who you are is difficult for so many people. Especially women. I have made it one of my top priorities as a mommy to teach my children to be comfortable with themselves for who they are and what they like. I can't tell you how many times I have told them "If you have to pretend to like things just so others will like you, then they don't really LIKE YOU do they?"
That's a fine line though. You have to make sure to teach them it's o.k. to try things that others like to see if it's something that you are interested in. However, it's also o.k. to decide "You know, I like you and I like spending time with you, but THIS isn't really my thing."
So now for the quirky part....let's talk about things I like shall we? Things that make me....self proclaimed #QUEENOFTHEGEEKS.
I LOVE red high heels, but I seldom wear heels. I just own them. Love them. Admire them on others.
I LOVE the color pink. I know it's girly. I love it anyway.
I LOVE Cinderella and totally wish Disney would quit putting all the other
I LOVE when little kids say inappropriate things in public. Especially when they swear! I know it's terrible. Doesn't make it any less funny.
I LOVE the smell of lemon dishwasher liquid. I got addicted to the smell when I was pregnant. I know it's weird.
I LOVE comic books! I collect all the comics adapted from The Anita Blake Vampire Hunter Series. I collect other series as well, and I feel right at home when I go into a comic shop and see all the freaks and geeks.
I LOVE the original series on the Syfy network.
I LOVE to read the dictionary. Seriously, there isn't anything better than being able to call a dolt, vapid and enjoy the blank stare you get back.
I LOVE the rain. Thunderstorms make me want to get nekked and spend all day in bed with BDC.
I LOVE sappy chic flick romantic comedies and will watch the same ones OVER AND OVER again.
I LOVE to sing REALLY loudly in the car by myself.
I LOVE to watch golf on television. I watch it all the time.
I LOVE dark humor. The darker the better. If it makes you feel uncomfortable? I am probably laughing out loud!
I LOVE that when BDC and I go out on dates we get asked if we are newlyweds every single time.
I LOVE wearing Christmas pjs ALL YEAR LONG!
So Smackers....it's challenge time. I want you to own it, work it, love it! Come up with at least 15 things about you that you LOVE. Blog about it. I want to know what makes you....well YOU.
Or you can just leave me comments!
