One More Step

I’m at a place where I feel like I should…evaluate? Think? Know? Myself. So with that in mind…this is inspired by Brandy’s post a while ago…I’ve been meaning to do this and tonight just felt right.

“Leave those bags behind, and hope they stay lost before you get to your next destination. All right, take few souvenirs if you must, but just nice stuff. No junk.” – Michael Rawls

I can’t…

*Do a cartwheel
*Sleep with a cat on my face
*…or at all.
*Fit into the new jeans I bought
*Look up when I’m higher than the ground. (Afraid of heights)

I can..

*Be a great friend
*Make people laugh
*Write through the pain
*Keep trying
*Climb on roofs even when I’m afraid of heights.
*Go through books like my life depends on it.
*Appreciate It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia
*Speak fluent That’s What She Said

I won’t…

*Drink straight out of the milk carton
*Take food off your plate without asking
*Lead you on
*Buy Starbucks for the next 7 days.

I will…

*Always say what’s on my mind, no matter what.
*Start going to the gym.
*Spend more time on ME.
*Take care of myself and go to the doctor.
*Always be there for my friends.
*Take food off your plate.
*Go see the monuments at night with the girls
*Remember to smile everyday.

I shouldn’t…

*Let the pain linger.
*Hold on to the unworthy.
*Give up.
*Stay up so late.
*Feel so guilty about living my life.
*Eat shitty.
*Ever…EVER change who I am because people are too chickenshit to appreciate it.
*Be bitter because of the ones who hurt me.

I should…

*Sleep more.
*Email Jackie
*Keep looking.
*Let go of the pain.
*Eat more veggies.
*Drink more water.
*Keep loving. Living. Climbing.
*Look into free classes at the gym.
*Read more blogs.
*Be more positive.
*Remember to breathe.

Your turn. I want you to give me at least one from each column in the comments…

“I can’t… but I can…
I won’t…but I will…
I shouldn’t…but I should”

    I won’t settle in this job…

    1. I love those!! I wish I could play things by ear…I used to be able to read sheet music but it’s been years!


  6. I love this post topic, so glad you did it! I can’t do a cartwheel either, but can execute and elegant somersault on demand. AND ALSO go through books like my life depends on it! Good luck with all your goals!
    .-= Lusty Reader´s last blog ..The Proposal gone wrong =-.


    1. I’m glad I did it too!

      Oh…somersaults…Haven’t done one in years!


  7. I whistle like a loser. I suck at it. We weren’t allowed to whistle in the house as kids — an unbelievably ridiculous rule. But now it means I don’t know how; I never learned.
    .-= f.B´s last blog ..dumber then yore avridge dumby =-.


  8. I can’t get over the pain of my past, no matter how hard I try

    but I can be strong and remember it makes me a better person

    I won’t be fake, ever. If you don’t like me, fuck you.

    but I will love all my friends dearly who accept me for who I am

    I shouldn’t be so wasteful with money

    but I should have some more coffee…


  9. I can’t… strike up a conversation with someone I’ve never met
    but I can… talk forever with anyone I know
    I won’t… ever take Walter for granted again
    but I will… cherish every moment with him for the rest of my life
    I shouldn’t… always overcompensate for everyone else
    but I should… eat healthier than I’ve been eating
    .-= Jaime´s last blog ..Umm…. =-.


    1. I shouldn’t… always overcompensate for everyone else

      You & me both.



    1. I do mini evals all the time…It’s the only way I can be sure of moving forward


  10. What a great idea.

    I can’t do a cartwheel (stole yours, yes, but I can’t either and it sucks). I can be a good listener.
    I won’t change who I am for someone. I will bend over backwards for someone I love.
    I shouldn’t eat so much junk food/drink so much soda. I should stick to my gym committment.

  11. I can’t bear tourists near the zoo.

    I can watch marathons of “Law & Order: SVU” like it’s my job.

    I won’t let myself get wrapped up in worrying about whether this boy likes me.

    I will unpack. Soon. Maybe.

    I shouldn’t worry so much about finding a guy.

    I should stop buying ice cream.
