I take a handful of vitamins with a swig of Diet Coke.
I follow up a killer workout with a fast food lunch.
I despise everything Kardashian but will click on a link to see how Kim has “broken the Internet” (again).
I long to be a minimalist but can’t get rid of sentimental mementos I’ve been holding onto for years.
I’m both quiet and shy and loud and outgoing.
I claim to dislike Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande and Demi Lovato and yet somehow know the lyrics to their songs when they are played on the radio.
I am a perfectionist and a procrastinator.
I love apples but can’t stand apple pie or apple sauce.
I have to exercise almost daily but when it comes to dropping and picking my son off at soccer practice, which is only four blocks from our house, I insist on driving.
I want to be noticed and appreciated, yet hate attention.
I’m predictably unpredictable.
I am spiritual but consider myself agnostic.
I support animal rights but I eat meat.
I HATE using the TV as a babysitter, but will be the first to put the children in front of it (as a last resort) if I need a breather! Of course, parenting is full of do as I say, not as I do moments, isn’t it?
Life is messy, chaotic and so are people.
Contradiction is part of being human and the only way to avoid being a walking contradiction would be to deny the pieces of myself that don’t fit nicely into designated slots someone else believes they should.
I can’t limit myself that way. And neither can you. Even if one action or practice contradicts another. Being happy on the inside is all that matters.
I say, go on, contradict yourself! There are no limits.
