I is for Interesting

This is seriously one of the most important words in my vocabulary. If I had to choose one and only one thing to be, it would be this: interesting.

Being interesting is how I met my husband. We met online, and though we weren’t all that well “matched,” I read his profile because he asked, “Aren’t there any interesting women out there?”

Why yes, yes there are.

In my mind, boring is one of the worst offenses someone can make, beat out only by willfully stupid.

I like people who do their own thing, even if doing their own thing means doing what others do. As long as they do it because they like it, that can be interesting.

For me, the most interesting people are the ones who have stories to tell. I’m a firm believer that quirks, flaws, and weirdness are what make people interesting. That’s why I’m not afraid to talk about the mistakes I’ve made. People make mistakes, and the sum total of those mistakes (and non-mistakes) make me who I am, and keep me interesting.

I find other honest people to be the most interesting. I like when people aren’t afraid to talk about the good, the bad, and the ugly in themselves.

What do you find interesting in other people?

    I 100% agree, even if agreeing, might be less than interesting! I like hearing it all… not just the published version. It is the good, the bad and the ugly that draws us in and keeps us there. Cheryl

    I always find people interesting when they agree with me. 😉 Thanks for stopping by.
