#WednesdayWisdom: Don’t pretend to be anything else.


It’s Wednesday, and the sky is gray, getting ready for the big storm, I imagine. And then frigid temps.

Fun ahead.

Today I am tired, my brain is tired, my thoughts are tired, and maybe it’s the weather, and maybe it’s the year ending, and maybe it’s just because I’m tired.

All three are possible.

But I’m not going to pretend to be anything else. Not today. Today I am tired and while I am tired I will be tired. I won’t try to make myself untired.

We’ll see how that goes.

We spend so much time pretending to be things we aren’t. Pretending to feel things we don’t, giving impressions of moods that we’re not in.

What happens if we stop?

What if we don’t pretend to be anything else?

Today. This hour. This minute.

You can go back any time you like, but try it on for size.

And see how it feels.

Have a great Wednesday.
