Do you like to follow the rules? I’ll admit that I’m a begrudging rule follower. I have the heart of a rebel, and it’s my first instinct to want to ignore and break all rules. However, I’ve learned that breaking the rules can be stressful, so I usually just follow the rules anyway. I suppose that I’m a wannabe rule breaker – at least when it comes to the law.
When it comes to less set in stone rules, I’m a total rule breaker. I have been working on Blogthings for almost ten years, even though people nag me to get a “real job.” (Too late – I’m hooked!) I also broke the rules by doing my education a bit differently than most I know. Oh, and by marrying Mr. Blogthings only after we had been dating a few weeks.
So yeah, I’m no lawbreaker, but I’m not so big on rules. I try to set as few rules for myself as possible. They’re too constricting. I admire, but can never understand, friends who go on very strict diets, fitness regimins, or budgets. It doesn’t seem like a lot of fun to me. I prefer to trust myself and take it how it comes. If I mess up a bit with my health or finances, maybe I’ll overcompensate a bit. No biggie.
