Sometimes I wonder…
what would happen if I reposted my articles on a new WordPress website. Would I really be penalized by Google or is it just some bullshit they made up so people don’t copy their shit and put it everywhere.
what I would look like after 3 months on an “ice cream diet.”
what it’s like to have me as a mom. I mean, I know what the kids say, but what do they secretly think? How do I really make them feel?
if we are all living in some version of hell right now and heaven comes later.
is this really it? Am I missing something important? Is there some big thing I am supposed to be doing with my life that I haven’t caught onto yet?
why I feel like I am at my emotional best the older I get but my looks refuse to keep up.
why tea isn’t more popular than coffee. Tea tastes so much better, is better for you and has a nice sound to it when you say something like, “I think I’ll make a cup of tea.” Plus, there’s the tea kettle which is just about the coziest thing ever invented!
why more people don’t enjoy reading. I mean like you get to jump inside a million minds and experience what it’s like to be other people. You can travel anywhere and learn unlimited information. I just think books are a magical form of free wisdom there for the taking. Why wouldn’t you want free wisdom?
why people insist on cramming there day as full of activities as possible. The world is beautiful and there is so much peace to be had when you just stop and breath and look around and take it in. Slowing down just feels so perfect and natural and amazing.
what is right under my nose but somehow missed.
what I sound like when I write. I just can’t seem to extricate myself from the words and read what I’ve written like a total stranger.
how long I will live and how I will end up dying. I’m glad I don’t know for sure.
if my intuition was really dead on all of these years. I mean, did I really call it when I felt a certain way? I have some verification that yes, my intuition was good, but there is still more unanswered questions I wish I knew for sure.
what the kids will be doing with their lives as adults. Will they be happy? Will they be in careers they enjoy? Will they find someone excellent to form a relationship with? Will there be kids of their own? Will they travel? Will they…
if all of the talks that my husband and I have had about what our future will be like will actually come true.
how much longer my car will hold out. I’ve had it since 2003.
how long our cats will live. Don’t get me wrong, I love them, I just wonder sometimes.
why my sister and I who grew up in the same family with the same experiences are so different in every single way you could possibly imagine.
how I ended up having three children who get along so well with each other and enjoy hanging out together when I had no relationship with my sister whatsoever growing up (and a very difficult one now).
how I was able to walk away from an awful first marriage and after swearing I would never marry again, marry my best friend.
where this writer gene came from. Was there someone in my family (I am unaware of) who was a writer?
why I am so compelled to examine everything around me in such minute detail and then report on it like a little kid tattling about it.
if I was born in the wrong country or the wrong era or the wrong something or other. Was there a better life waiting for me if only I had been dropped in the proper place.
why there is so much pain in the world and how come we can’t seem to fix it. It hurts to see so much suffering and feeling as though you are powerless to stop it or to put a broken soul back together and heal them.
if people are really grateful for the small things that are good in their lives. Does it really take hard times to appreciate the really small good stuff?
why more people don’t realize that if they quit looking outside of themselves for help and just trust that they can do it, anything is possible. Magical things can come from the hard work and persistent personality.
