it's good to be yourself, you know? that sounds so lame. everyone is obviously their own person, and hopefully they like themselves. but i read this post this afternoon and started thinking: i am really hard on myself sometimes and often conflicted about who i want to be. i try to measure up to other people's standards and don't give myself enough credit for just being me.
so here is a list of things that are all me, whether i like them or not:
My name is Sarah.
God is the most important thing to me.
Music is the second most important thing to me.
My friends are my family.
My biological family doesn't always feel like family.
My church is my family.
I love my job.
I don't get paid enough for my job, but maybe one day I will.
I can be really judgmental, and it makes me look bad.
I always tell myself to go to the gym and it doesn't happen.
I wish I could be more artsy.
I wish I had more money.
I care a lot about what other people think about me.
I like attention.
I wish I didn't feel the need to get attention.
I am a singer and proud of it.
I always wish my voice was better.
Sometimes I get really frustrated about having to be committed to things.
I want to get married.
I want to stay single.
I have been a babysitter for 13 years but I don't like taking care of kids anymore.
I hate and love when I'm lazy.
I am terrified of driving in the city and parallel parking.
I am terrified of doing things alone.
I cannot drive anywhere unless I know exactly where I'm going.
I'm a little neurotic.
^ that last one pretty much explains it all, in case you couldn't tell.
