People always say that “honesty is the best policy” so why is it that whenever I tell the truth it ends up biting me in the a$*?!?
For example: my mother-in-law asked me if I liked pumpkin squares, it just so happens that I DO NOT like pumpkin squares, pumpkin pie, pumpkin chocolate chip cookies and so I answered honestly and told her “NO”. My mother overheard the conversation and proceeded to tell me how rude it was and that for the sake of my MIL feelings I could have just told her yes!! Really?? So that the rest of my life she would have make me pumpkin squares, thinking I like them?? Hmm doesn't make much sense..
I am sorry if I hurt your feelings when I don’t pretend like we are best friends if.. I don’t really like you,
or if you ask what I think of your outfit and I tell you it’s not really flattering.
I don’t feel bad telling you that I don’t like pie or nuts in food or spicy food at all- it’s not your food it’s anyone’s!
I don’t think it’s wrong to admit that you’ve changed your mind about plans that you’ve made and would rather stay home with your husband.
What’s wrong with agreeing to disagree instead of just going with the flow?
Why is it that we feel that telling half truths or creating a “story” are a much better alternative to telling the truth?? Shouldn’t the person being told the truth be grateful that they are respected enough that they aren’t being told a blatant lie that the person feels they are emotionally mature enough to not overreact to the truth…
Don’t get me wrong, there is a respectful way to approach the “honesty” issue. People’s feeling must be taken into consideration and if the cold, hard truth would crush them- find an easy way around it.. lead into the conversation slowly but don’t chicken out… or else you will find yourself making excuses and telling more half-truths for a very long time!
Which do you prefer… A story to soften the blow or-
the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.. ?? Got any stories??

For those of you who have never (and probably never will) seen this side of Jesse.
Please ignore my high pitched voice and cackling in the background..

People magazine came out with their annual "Most Beautiful People" list this past week and Christina Applegate was their #1... I have to say that although I do think Christina is beautiful, it's not just her exterior that put her at the top this year. Inner beauty has got to be what pushed her to the front of the pack as she courageously fought a battle with breast cancer and ultimately had a double masectomy to prevent any future altercations. It made me happy to see that although all around us we see what the definition of beauty should be.. we can still take a step back to appreciate strength, courage, optimism, and the beauty that the eye can't see...

I am feeling a little down today (i know it should be a crime cuz it's friday) so I thought I would steal an idea from this blog and think of things that make me happy in no particular order...
Wish me luck!!
