Danielle of Sometimes Sweet shared this excellent post entitled, “If You Really Knew Me…” and I absolutely adore the idea. So, I’ve decided to play along and do my own personal version. The funny thing is that most of the time, this blog is an extension of myself. There isn’t much that I hold back on here, or keep “secret” per se. But, let’s see what sorts of nonsense I can drum up that you might not know about me via way of the internet world.
If You Really Knew Me. . .
You’d know that I am currently working on my first book. However, the irony of this statement is that I can’t/won’t go into much detail about this one.
You’d know that my favorite band of all time is the Grateful Dead.
You’d know that I regret a few of my tattoos.
You’d know that I never want to have children, and I’m totally 100% ok with that choice.
You’d know that I’ve battled with an eating disorder since a very young age, and still do everyday. (Man I must sound like I have a ton of baggage! LOL!) I am just not very vocal about it on the blog. I guess, it’s like the one thing I rarely discuss.
You’d know that I’m Jewish. And while I don’t practice on a regular basis, I still take part in the yearly holiday traditions, and it’s where a good portion of my beliefs are centered around. I can also read hebrew.
You’d know that I cannot get through the day anymore without starting it off with at least 20minutes of meditation. Since starting my daily practices, if I skip a morning, it’s like I’m a psychopath on the loose. I have zero tolerance and patience for anyone or anything.
You’d know that I have psychic tendencies. This is probably one of the weirdest (in terms of social norms) things about me. While I don’t think it’s weird, I don’t talk about it much except to Brett. I’ve had visions of things happening moments before they occurred. It’s a very interesting experience, and I hope that with my daily practice, my energy will only get stronger. I mean don’t get the wrong idea, it’s not like I’m going to be setting up shop with a crystal ball…hahaha
You’d know that I constantly struggle with the idea of regret. I’m trying to learn how to let go and not let my past decisions haunt me.
You’d know that I have a strange fascination with doing crosswords. I hardly ever do them, but I think if I do they’ll make me more intelligent. I have books of empty ones sitting on my shelf just taunting me. Is it wrong to use Google to help you find the solutions?
What are your secrets?
