While at dinner the other night, our waitress had on a necklace that resembled a rosary with a little cross and Jesus hanging on the end of it, but she also had on a rainbow arm band and a rainbow ring. I am assuming that the rainbow bracelet and ring were her show of support for the LGBT community. Of course, I could be wrong, it has happened before, but that’s not the point. My point is I said to the AH well if she’s catholic who supports gays and lesbians then she’s a walking contradiction isn’t she? That got me to thinking, what things do I support or like that make me a contradiction as well.
I’m a little country, but a little rock in roll
I’m a bit of a hippy and a bit of a feminist
I hate my state and I love it.
I’m for womens right to abort, but I hate that it’s used at all.
I’m trying to go green, yet I love my huge gas guzzling suv and would love to have a huge gas guzzling four door ford truck.
I’m a southern girl, who sometimes dreams of living in a blue or more liberal state.
I’m an athiest in a state, full of christians.
I find nature and all it offers beautiful and sometimes it seems a bit spiritual to me. I’m not a big adventurer girl, but I love the idea of camping and white water raffting and hiking. I think I just like the air conditioner and good food too much.
I love animals, can’t stand the way they are treated and handled for our food, yet I love me a juicy steak.
I love technology, yet sometimes I think it might be nice to live as they did in the 1800’s
I love country music but find the lyrics stupid sometimes. A lot of times it reminds me of my parents divorce and puts me in a melancholy mood. I listen to pop a lot and I love me some Eminem and Pink. I find I appreciate those singers that write their own music from their life experiences. I feel they make better albums.
I hate that I worry to much what others may think of me and mine, yet when I’m able to no longer care as much as I did I feel guilty and somewhat lost.
I wish I was extroverted, but am an introvert most of the time. I seem to be able to speak to others freely while in a group once conversation gets started. Though I sometimes feel what I have to offer is sub par to others.
I want to travel America and Canada and see the sites, show my kids the beauty of the land, yet leaving home makes me nervous.
I love America, proud to be American but think we can learn from other countries and that they sometimes have things that work better, but being America, we don’t like others to tell us what to do or what might work better, so we fight some things and ways of doing stuff that might be better.
I’m all these things and more. I’m a confused jumbled walking contradiction. I love and I hate. I’m emotional on the inside but don’t show it on the outside. I am me. The only me I know how to be and sometimes it’s not enough and others it’s perfect. I try to find and keep the balance. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I don’t.
Are you a walking contradiction?
