    Agreed – real books are better than ebooks!!! This is a great list! I think my list would start with “wearing heels even though I’m taller than most barefoot” :)

      Ooh, that’s a good one! I finally, in my thirties, have decided to wear the heels if I love them and all the short people can kiss it. :) Love it.

    This post was amazing. I’m still not sure what about it spoke to me so much. I’m thinking it has something to do with the fact that I do, often, catch myself apologizing for lots of things on this list. “My height” was a good one. I’m 5’2″ my husband is 6’3″ and I never noticed or cared that I was short until suddenly everyone had something to say about the height difference between us. How funny that I actually feel embarassed by that after 26 years of not even noticing!

      I spent half my life wishing I was short–so just rock it! And it’s so weird how other people’s issues make us look at ourselves differently. Blah. God made you perfect and your husband must not mind, obviously, so walk proud!! :)

    -saying I like someone/something when it is not the “popular” choice

    -knowing the answer and speaking up

    -eating lunch out by myself because I like my own company!

    -shopping by myself because it is faster/more efficient and I trust my own taste
