I’ve always been kind of a weirdo...
My favorite example of that was the story of how I met my best friend, Mary. She was hanging out with my guy neighbors on the porch next door to my house. “Oh hi, my name is Amanda,” were my first words as I tried to introduce myself like a normal person...I then proceeded to do the most embarrassing thing in my life (at that time)...”Look what I can do,” as I kept my eyes focused straight and turned my head left to right. 😳 Mary and I have been best friends ever since. What she saw in me I’m not sure, but I am grateful everyday to have her in my life.
That weird thing I did with my face that day made no sense... what in the hell was I thinking? But that’s me, I can be socially awkward, share too much, and often put my foot in my mouth. Sometimes, I think faster than I can speak, and my words don’t come out right. Half the time I make no sense even to myself.. but this part of me also includes my quirky, bubbly, and loving personality. I am always trying to find a way to connect with people, and I love making people laugh. My imagination is always running, and this seeps into my cooking, silly songs I make up about my daily activities, my goofy dance moves, and even how I dress. Moral of this story is, be yourself, because there’s only one of you. It’s good practice to work on yourself daily, but never do it while loosing site of who you really are.
Shout out to keepingup_withmare for being friends with a weirdo like me! 😘
