Secret- Something you tell everybody to tell nobody – /sēkrit/ adjective
We all have secrets that no one knows about us.Maybe they are not really secrets but they could be things about you that you have never had a chance to tell others or put it out there for people to know or maybe its not something people really should know or care about. I really think it is pretty cool and interesting to learn about others internal thoughts, weird habits or interesting facts that make us all who we are. I think that if we shared them with each other then we would find that we are all unique in our own way, we are all different but still the same, we are all weird and we are all interesting.
Here are 5 things about me that you probably didn’t know, not that you really care but it will help you understand me more and maybe even connect with me more. Maybe it will just make you think about the little habits that you do every day or on occasion that makes you who you are.
1.I am a diaper salesman. Yep, it’s true. I never in a hundred years would have ever dreamed that I would sell diapers for a living. As a matter of fact, I am a Certified Incontinence Coach. I could tell you more about incontinence product than you would ever care to know. I love what I do and strive every day to be the best diaper salesman to ever walk the face of the earth.So if you are in the market for baby diapers, adult briefs, liners, wipes or any other kind of incontinence products please contact me, I will send you out some free samples.

2. I have many nervous habits. Eating sunflower seeds all day, fidgeting with my fingers or with anything I can get my hands on, chewing on pens or plastic, biting my fingernails and keeping beats with my hands and feet like I am playing the drums.I can’t ever sit completely still. I find it interesting that I do these things without even realizing it. I am not even a nervous person, I am generally pretty calm, its just my way of thinking or releasing energy because I am uncomfortable. Trying new things is uncomfortable, failing is uncomfortable, success is uncomfortable. One of my goals is to become comfortable being uncomfortable, because then I know I am always growing.
When you stop being nervous is when you should retire. I’m always a little nervous for anything I do because when complacency sets in, that’s when I feel it’s time to move on to something else. ~ ~Chris Jericho
3. I hate running. I blame this on the Marine Corps. We ran 3 to 5 days a week sometimes with running shoes and sometimes with boots on. Either way, I had to do it and now that I am out of active duty I don’t have to anymore, but I still do. I still run even though I do not have to because I know that it is good for my lungs and it helps to clear my mind. If you ever see me running down the road, just know that I am hating ever second of it. The Marine Corps taught me this disciple. Sometimes we have to do the things we hate, because we know it makes us better.
“Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty… I have never in my life envied a human being who led an easy life. I have envied a great many people who led difficult lives and led them well.” Theodore Roosevelt
4. My favorite movie is Tombstone. I am not a big western tv show guy but this movie is awesome. I have watched it over 100 times and it never gets old. I can quote almost the whole movie word for word. Val Kilmer, who plays, Doc Holiday makes this movie what it is. I often try to imagine myself as Doc Holiday when I get in stressful situations. His relaxed, humorous, carefree, but intimidating demeanor is captivating to me.
“Their is no normal life, Wyatt. It’s just life, Get on with it.” Doc Holiday
5. I would like to Pastor a church one day. I know there is a time a place for everything under the sun. Being a church Pastor is something that I thought I was called to do early in life but I have not yet been given the privilege yet.Maybe it is because God has had other plans for me or maybe because of my disobedience. God may never give me this job or responsibility on this earth and I am completely okay with that. He has me doing ministry in other ways. He has been using me ever since I gave my life to Christ at 12 years old in ways that I wouldn’t have thought of. Writing blogs is one. I guess I will keeping working while I wait.
