I do a LOT of thinking! Too much, probably....but in all that thinking, there are some things I just don't get....here's a small sampling of what goes on inside my brain:
- When you can't/don't have something you want, all of a sudden it seems like everyone around you has it. (i.e. I want to be married and have kids - and it seems like everyone in the world has it but me. OR I can't eat food for two weeks, so it seems like every commercial on TV is for food!)
- It is easier to see other people's mistakes than your own. This works both ways. I see so many of my friends and people I am around on a regular basis make what I would call 'dumb' mistakes in their personal lives. It is so easy for me to see their 'mistakes' but even if I warn them, they make them anyway. Don't think I'm perfect though....I have people 'warn' me of things that I ignore also.
- People have so much trouble following the Golden Rule. Is it THAT hard to be nice to someone, or to think about how your actions effect others?
- Why do I always cry when watching Extreme Home Makeover? I used to never cry, now I cry at everything!
- Grammar and proof-reading are becoming a thing of the past. Now, I know I'm not perfect at this, but I have read so many articles and blogs online this past week that contained typos or grammar mistakes - its sad!
- No matter how long I spend making my grocery list, I always leave something off and end up going back to the store.
- People are willing to sit around and complain about things, but not make an actual move to do it or change it. This is especially annoying at work. I tend to think of myself as a 'doer'. I have tons of ideas, but I don't talk about most of them - only the ones that I can do something about.
- Every time I wash my car it rains.
- Every time I mow my yard, the grass grows back (just kidding - I was just seeing if you were still paying attention on that one!).
That's all I have for now....we'll chat more this week! This is week 2 of the liquid diet, by Tuesday morning I will be halfway done!!!! Thanks for your prayers and support.
