Lying to Myself

All these years I have been lying to myself about something.  Not only myself though, but to the world.  I always pretended to be athletic, agile, and coordinated... but the truth is that I'm not.  The world probably already recognized this but chose to let me carry on so as to not hurt my feelings.  Yesterday opened my eyes to the truth.  

The following pictures were posted on the ambassador facebook page, exposing the lie I had been living:

I now fully recognize that I am not coordinated.  I prefer to blame my amblyopia (lazy eye) because my depth perception is skewed... maybe that's just another lie.  

BUT.  I have come to terms with it, because I have other talents.  

Have you ever seen me:

Scrape a mixing bowl?  
Speed walk?
Cut strawberries?
Make a prezi? 
Play Wheel of Fortune? 

It's true, I'm pretty good at all those things.  And, after all, we can't all be kickball champs, somebody has to be good at other things.  

I may not have kicked the ball, but at least I got a pretty good kick out of these pictures.  Hope you will too!

  1. BEST PICTURES EVER. you're the best syd! i just recently found out about your speed walking abilities...impressive to say the least.

  2. This is a great blog for anyone who wants to know about this topic. Thanks for sharing such a nice information to everyone. buy provigil

  3. Wow, thanks Sewi, I had no idea people were searching for information about dealing with kickball coordination issues.

  4. Hahahaha! Syd, you're the best. Are you lying about having a lazy eye? I've never noticed such a thing.

  5. Ha, not the kind of lazy eye you think... it doesn't wander it just is lazy in the sense that it doesn't work as well as the other. Fact: I wore an eye-patch as a child to try and remedy it.
