It hit me in a meeting yesterday how often I fall into the "runaway bride" trap. Not that I run from commitment or have ever been proposed to. It is the trap of going with other views, likes, and needs and forgeting myself. I turn moments where people are wanting to know about me into moments about them. Then I turn around and dump on my blog, journal, or unexpecting friends. Like the fact that Julie Roberts character doesn't know what eggs she likes... I am often that way. I go with what my friends are doing and don't have an opinon of my own. If anyone asks me "where would you like to eat?" I usually yield to their desires. This is not in all areas of my life, but there are definately times where I yield instead of think. I often live in the moment, go with the flow, and when things slow down wonder why I had no ideas or why I didn't speak up. Not sure what to do with the observation... just noticed it.
By the way... my favorite is scrambled eggs with onions, ham, and cheese on top of cheese grits!
