Round Robin

The Round Robin for today is "The Animal Inside".. Why not play along? Just click the link to read the instructions and post your "inner animal"

I chose a few animals for different times of my life...

As a young child I see myself as a ferret ...
Running around with not a care in the world and having all sorts of energy.. getting into all sorts of things, but being "cute" as I do it of course.

As a teenager, maybe I'd be a squirrel....
Storing away all of my youthful dreams and preparing to meet life as an adult.

As an adult, maybe i would be a beaver....
Never having time for myself and always being busy keeping up a home, caring for my husband and raising children.

But now, as I age, I see myself as the Cowardly Lion from the Wizard of Oz..

All of his life he was afraid to accept himself , he believed in what everyone else told him he was........not good enough to be a real lion, and so he became what others dictated he was.

Now if only "Dorothy" would come along and prove me wrong!

But.. if i could CHOOSE an animal inside, I think I'd choose a MEERCAT. For no other reason then they make me laugh.. and it always feels so good to laugh!

Sometimes I feel like the cowardly lion too. You don't know how scared I can get sometimes when I get in social situations, or things involving everyday life. I tend to run....

I feel like the cowardly lion myself.

Your not cowardly to me, although you do kinda remind me of a mere cat. ~wink~

But only cause your cute and funny!

Hi Hon :)

I agree with Nancy, this is a wonderful and creative entry. You chose many of my favorite animals, I just love squirrels. :) And aren't we all a cowardy lion from time to time, yet that was such an endearing character from literature

Great post, and you're your own Dorothy--prove yourself "wrong" with every post. I've said it before, I'll say it again: you're awesome.
