I wholeheartedly subscribe to the rationale “fake it till you make it.” Countless things I do are hands-down out of my comfort zone. Of course it’s always easier to avoid a confrontation, let your kids watch hours of TV, not work out, and eat like crap, but why don’t I always just give in? Because I’m playing the part of who I would like to be. Plus, I have found when you push yourself to do uncomfortable things, it usually makes you feel better on the other side of it.
Except sitting through school talent shows. Just plain painful. I will never feign my way to actually enjoying one of these things.
What I really want to pretend to be is a bourbon drinker. I have visions of saddling up to a bar and ordering a Bulleit 10 Year neat. How ballsy and cool would that girl be?! Sadly, I have never been her, but it’s good to have goals. Maybe I should just frequent more bars after school talent shows……
