I'm Better With Food

Woah. It's been a while my friends. I am very sorry.
A lot has happened that has kept me crazy busy and preoccupied with things I usually am not preoccupied with. But it's good to have a few changes in life. So I'm not complaining.

Today, I was writing down a list of weird things about me.
I called it, "Weird Things About Me."
I know, I know. I'm super-duper creative.
But it was an amazing exercise.
I tried to come up with things that are truly unique to me--what makes me different from everyone else.
I saw it in a TV show I was watching, and I thought to myself that it would not be a bad idea to try it, too.
The hope is that I recognize that I am different and weird compared to other people, but that's ok because it is what makes me me. And, it helped me remember that I am definitely not the only one in the world that has weird things that make them who they are.

While I has doing this exercise, I kept thinking about a certain scene from a certain movie.
You might know what I am talking about when I say "Jell-o" and "My Best Friend's Wedding". It is a great scene. Enjoy it HERE.

Basically, I kept thinking about how "You're never gonna be Jell-o" may be one of the truest statements in my life right now.
I will never be Jell-o. Maybe I will never be Creme Brulee.
Maybe, I am S'mores, or Can't Say No Sundae, or Banana Pudding.
I'm my own self.
You are your own self.
People can either accept it or not, love it or not. It's not your problem, it's theirs.
It's not my problem, it's theirs.
It is important that I not change who I am just make someone like me, or make someone happy.
I am me, and my list of weird things is going to stay my list of weird things. They are all keepers.

"AHA!" moment.
