Sharon's Ramblings... Not my words, but a nice reminder that whatever is inside you will eventually spill out, so you want to be careful what you're holding onto.   

This picture at left made me think about myself and what I'm really like.  I think I'm a good person, I try to be. I try to be kind to others and leave them better than I found them.

But, there's another side of me that I don't like much and makes me wonder what's really inside. Is there something from the past hidden, waiting to show the "real me?"

I curse. Not normally, for sure. I wasn't raised that way, although I do recall my mom cursing once when she smashed her finger with the pump handle. Yeah, just once. It was a different world back then. People didn't talk the way they do now. Not that I think it makes it a better world now. It doesn't. 

My point is that I find I curse sometimes when I’m startled, by a snake for example, and I’ll wonder, “ Where did that come from?” The curse, not the snake, it came out of the woods since I live in the woods. But, I do wonder, since I don’t normally curse, why it comes out in those unexpected moments. Is that the real me that I keep hidden, even from myself? I hope not. 

It does make me wonder, though, if there's a different me inside, that, but for my circumstances would be a different person.

Sometimes I'll see someone behave badly, or get themselves in a bad situation and think, well, thank God I'm not like that, but then I'll wonder, if I had to fight the same battles he/or she had to, would I behave that way, too? Who's to know what a person would do if given a different path in life.  There's no real answer to these questions, I guess. All you can do is try to be the best person you can and help those you find struggling along the way. 💓
