Post-A-Day 2011: What part of life confuses you the most?
Confusion is a funny thing. As I tried to think about what it was about life that confused me, I couldn’t think of anything. I was looking for something significant – world politics, or something like that, but I can’t select any of them because I just don’t care about them enough to be confused by them.
I realized that the things that confuse me the most are the simple things. Decisions that should be easy are difficult and confusing because I overthink them. There are two things that confuse me over and over again that are seemingly simple, easy things. I actually kind of feel silly that I am even admitting them.
I have to admit that every single day when it comes time to think of something to make for dinner, I am at a loss. It doesn’t matter if I have a full pantry or an empty one, all the ingredients confuse me and make it hard for me to make a decision about meals. I am not usually a creative cook, and I don’t like to take a lot of time to cook when there are so many other things I could be doing.
The same concept applies to my closet – I have talked about how gaining weight has limited the choices of what to wear in my closet. Due to those limitations and it being winter, I am completely confused every morning as to what to wear. Do I wear something “nicer”, or do I dress it down to a t-shirt, jeans, and tennis shoes? Should I take the time to actually make myself presentable, or will sweats suffice?
Like I said, pretty pitiful things to be confused over, but it is what it is.
