Boxlessness, Weirdities & Oddities
I do not just think outside the box.....I live outside the box. Growing up with a creative mother I never knew there was a thinking box. The only box I was ever aware of was the behavior box....being an MK (Missionary Kid) I was shoved into that box whether I wanted to be or not. It didn't fit. As soon as I left home that box was blown to smithereens.
I'm committed to living a life of honesty. Part of that commitment is behaving honestly....real...genuine...true. This commitment does not give me a license to be rude, obnoxious & uncaring. I believe in tact & discretion....I don't believe in "being nice." Being nice has never been a goal of mine. People use "nice" to manipulate and control others. Therefore, I am not nice and never will be. When someone says to me, "you're not nice" it's usually because I'm not doing something that they want me to do. When I respond with, "so?" They are boggled that I don't care about what they think. I have no room for niceness in my life of honesty. People persist in asking questions that they don't really want answered....or they want it answered in a specific way. If you choose to be honest with them.....then suddenly you are not nice. Screw nice. Nice is for those wusses who have no backbone. It takes courage to live a life of honesty. As long as I'm not hurting anyone or doing anything illegal, I don't care what most people think about me. I'm selective with whose opinions matter to me. If everyone's opinions mattered to me I would be even crazier than I already am....it's just not worth my time and effort to care.
Weirdities & Oddities
The odd/weird part of my reaction is that I have no problems with Catherine Zeta-Jones marrying Michael Douglas or with Demi & Ashton rockin' the cradle. There's just something about Tom Cruise......
