if you don’t mind me

if you don’t mind me being open book honest with you here, i’m not much into the traditional “save face” mechanism that Asian people are known for.. it never did much for me, and I don’t know what it is that it does for others.. so here in my journal, i take off my mask, and let you have a look into my very persona, i’ve got nothing to hide, nothing to be ashamed of, per se, i’m here, what you see is what you get.. somewhat akin to the comment made about Bud White in L.A. Confidential (that he doesn’t know how to hide his own goodness).. I’m not a hider, and I’m not sure how people have the energy to be hiding, because it takes more energy to hide and pretend (to make oneself look better than one really is), than to be oneself and let it ride.. it is now the one month anniversary of my personal breakthrough, and i’m feeling well and life is going on full speed ahead.. i do not work myself too hard, tho’ i do my share of work, perhaps more than my share– at a recent conference, i found myself handing out 5 business cards, with different things that i’m involved with.. a good friend said that if I got up to 6 business cards, that’d be too many and I’d better slow down.. all I want in life is simply to enjoy my family and friends, and have as many friends as possible.. all the rest, career and stuff, is just gravy and for fun.
