Beautifully Different

Prompt: Beautifully different. Think about what makes you different and what you do that lights people up. Reflect on all the things that make you different - you'll find they're what make you beautiful.

Oh this is a hard one for me today. My recovery program teaches me NOT to be ‘terminally unique’, to see the things that make us alike, not different. But we are all individuals in this world with common likes and dislikes and life experiences. I’d like to think that my creativeness, honesty, and friendly personality are what people are drawn to, but I don’t really know. I’m a little neurotic and OCD abt things, like I always take the 2nd or 3rd magazine or newspaper in a rack & I like my glasses to be all lined up in the cabinet upside down (thank you Nana!) and my closet has to be a certain way. I love a little coffee with my cream, snuggling with my kitties, reading, reading, reading (especially YA vampire books), I have a paper addiction that started long before my scrapping addiction. I love to laugh, travel, explore & just lay in bed. I used to think I was a world of contradictions but most of those things have swung one way or the other. My online friends are just as important and real to me as the people I know in person. I love vintage and modern and all kinds of stuff in between. I’m sentimental and sympathetic. I love a good underdog. I never remember movie lines. I only sing in the car when I’m alone. My recovery is my greatest achievement. Or maybe taking care of Nana for almost 5 yrs.  I can have a sometimes quirky, sometimes obvious sense of humor. I’m easily entertained. I like creamy desserts. I love finding common bonds with others and taking photos with my iPhone.  So that’s some of ‘me’. And there is much more. And I’m constantly evolving and changing my mind. Winking smile
