My World

I believe that I am a good person.  I don't lie.  I don't like to gossip.  I pay my taxes.  I serve on the PTA.  I'm supportive to my peeps, and I encourage all people to run.

Regardless of gender, race, speed, age or fitness.

I will invite almost anyone on a run...

even if I think they're too slow - I'll slow down.
even if they don't run as far as I run - I'll make two shorter loops.
even if I think they will never accept the invitation - I make sure that it's out there, just incase, because tomorrow is a new day.
and I will run with people if they ask me, especially if they say they're struggling, regardless of gender, race, speed, age or fitness.

I am faithful to my husband, my God, my training partner, my best friend, my true friends, my favorite dog, and my children- not necessarily in that order, because there is no order...  I just AM.

And, believe it or not, I am proud of that integrity.  It's the ONE thing I have that I believe no one can take away from me except me.  And WHY would I give that away?  I wouldn't.

Yesterday, I found out, I am Elizabeth Proctor.

Today.  I am still Elizabeth Proctor.

I'm usually a very forgiving person who can accept the mistakes of almost anyone, and it's absolutely true that can make a joke about almost anything and move on.

usually.  
and.
almost.

I'm not going to lie... I had to google her. And I still do not understand the comparison.

Pam said...

I'm with Jen. I googled her too. So you're a witch? Cool. That makes two of us.

E. Proctor was the victim of a witch hunt. If she denies = guilty for denying, if she says nothing = must be guilty b/c she says nothing.

Ahhh, I see. The good ol' "Damned if you do, damned if you don't."

Hope you set 'em straight!

drama! That is why I live my nice boring life. Noone notices me enough to gossip about me. Hope you get it worked out or can kick those gossipers to the curb.

awww... hang in there. everything usually balances out in the end, and if it doesn't, you can find peace within yourself for knowing who you are. some people have lives that are in disorder or chaos and they try (maybe not intentionally) to throw others into that same disorder.
i hope it turns out better soon. :)
