    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” :)

    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!

    -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
