I like to think that I am an independent thinker.
I have been unconventional all my life- even before the feminist movement.
When my 6th grade peers liked blue, my favorite color was red and it still is.
I don't really follow trends, so when crop pants go out of style, they will still be my favorite pants to wear, and flip-flops will be my shoe choice.
I suppose I do not like being told what to do either.
When someone says, “jump”, I say “Are you kidding me, I’ll fall and break something I’ll need later.”
Some might think that I am a tad stubborn.
Ok, I can agree with that.
I like to know why I should do this or that, before I have to do it.
More importantly, I need to know if it will hurt?
I am also a fussy eater.
Do not ask me to eat seafood, anything slimy, vegetables I can’t spell, humus, or anything that smells like a wet dog.
I like what I like, and life is too short to eat something that I do not want to eat.
However, I am open to lots of suggestions like “Want to go to lunch?” or “I’m going shopping, want to go?” or “Let’s go on a trip.”
I suppose then I would make me dependent, but that would be my independent choice.
I'd love to hear from you. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Facebook.
Have a wonderful day of independence.
