One Liner Wednesday…….. on Thursday

Hubby and I were talking in the car this morning about people, make up and how so many seem to judge a person by the wrappings rather than the inner pages.
Hubby liked me on our first meeting. I remember I wore a black skirt, and black batwing jumper (my favourite outfit of the time), a little bit of makeup, and a smile. I also talked a lot, and he let me.

One of the reasons both my first marriage and live in relationship failed was because I tried to be what other people wanted or expected me to be, not myself.
One of the reasons we moved away 11 years ago was to stop living our lives for other people.
What you see is what you get, no ulterior motive or hidden agenda.
So with that thought in mind, I came up with this:

If you can’t be yourself, who are you?

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Some quotes come to mind:
    “You can never please everybody, so don’t waste your time trying.”
    “Be the best “you” that you can be, because you as sure as hell can never be anybody else.”
    “You might be able to fool the world, but you can never fool yourself. Look in a mirror and if you do not like the person you see, then some changes are in order”

    If we are not ours, then who are we?

    Great post! You are so right, the inner is much more important than the outer! And being yourself is the most important!

  4. This reminds me of the quote,
    ‘Be yourself. Everyone else is taken.’.
    I like yours better for some reason though haha πŸ˜„.
