Day 35: Blending In

What a blessing! I feared for a bit last night that I was getting worst when I started to have a fever, but what was actually happening was my body fighting the virus. Those suckers fought back and they won! I managed to eat two crackers (while truly lusting for a banana nut muffin) and passed out. I slept through most of the night and woke up with an appetite.

Though I spent half the day sleeping, finally recovering, I'm most happiest about being able to eat and not have my body reject it. I almost didn't do a picture for today, but this one occurred to me right after Jose and I watched "The Informant" tonight.

Blending in. Sometimes we try so hard to blend in we end up standing out even more. Honestly, I can't decide if this is more typical with women or men. I believe pop culture displays both sides -- you know, films where we root for the middle school underdog because we can all relate. Or at least most of us. At one point in our life when we were trying to figure out who we were, what "group" we belonged to -- we wanted to blend in. So here's to those awkward, please-help-me-forget, funny, don't regret, never repeated moments that we tried so hard to blend in...

Maybe you don't blend in ... you stand out. Embrace that because you never know who loves that most about you.
