Day 04 — A blogger friend I’ve known for over five years told me she has been blogging anonymously all this time and most of what I know about her is her fantasy. My reaction to the news is…
“Rock on, Sister Moon!!” That’s what my dad says to let me know it’s okay to do whatever it is that I’m doing right now that I think I need to be doing.
So for 5 years you have been creating a fantasy, eh? That is dedication. That is one creative mind you got, girl. I’m jealous. I’m a shit liar. Sure, sure I can sit and think up some really great stuff but it’s like highschool drama club backdrop art: one dimensional; a piece of cardboard with a rudimentary tree painted on it. You are like that movie: Inception. The details. The commitment. Wow. Just wow.
Okay. So now that I’m done gushing…
YOU LIED TO ME?! I’m hurt!
I kid. I kid. I’m not that hurt.
“Who we are is nothing more than the choice we make in the next moment”
(the other thing I say – ALL THE TIME!!!)
Every day we wake up and decide who we are going to be and the people we encounter pull more pieces of that person out as the day goes on. You were a bitch to the mailman, an angel to the hurt/sick child/animal you saw crying in the street, a fierce taskmaster keeping your wayward employees in line, a mousy girl on that first date with the boy you’ve been crushing, a sexy goddess at the climbing wall/yoga studio.
We are not always one thing and never another. We are all things: good, bad, ugly. And the truth about lies is that lies are filled with truths. It’s less about who you are not and more about why you chose to be *this* person to me.
Regardless I am flattered that the person you wanted me to know was this awesome creation with whom I have bonded and shared my life these past few years. Where do we go from here?
