I can't believe I'm sharing this.....

I’ve shared stupid stuff on this blog, but never as stupid as the following:

I come home from work, put my jamees on, sit in my favorite chair, wait while my supper cooks on the stove, and look what was recorded on my DVR, so I can watch TV until I can’t stay up any longer blah blah blah.  I’m constantly watching episodes of Law and Order SVU.  What’s up with that? I think I have a serious problem here.

I’m always thinking of things that I should be doing, but I don’t do, because I feel afraid to get out into the world too much, afraid to widen my horizons, because I feel that I won’t like the people I’m around or they won’t like me.

I  think to myself, “Jill (that’s what I call myself, ha), you should be out there among the masses, meeting people, getting to know them, showing your true self to the world!”

And I think, “Jill, you should be taking a course in something, like how to make pasta or how to build furniture, taking a philosophy class or blah blah blah!”

Or, “Jill, you should be getting fit!  Go for a walk, do yoga, meditate, get moving!”

“Gees Jill, life is short. You’re 63.  You’ve got maybe 15 to 20 years left. Get out there….make people laugh, be helpful to them, be an example of fitness, love others and blah blah blah.”

“Oh crap….. something’s burning.”

Saying: “You think I’m stupid for not realizing it, but the truth is, I’m just being nice by not telling you.” –unknown-
