Many people, including myself, are fascinated by the copy machine. It holds such power and precision, and there seems to be no limit as to its capabilities (provided there is sufficient ink, functioning parts and competent operators).

Can you remember as a kid you would be a “copy cat” and annoy friends, parents and teachers? I wonder if we ever really stopped. We take advice and fashion sense and a multitude of other things on surface value and copy/imitate others almost subconsciously at times.

We have influence over others and they over us. How far does it go?

Has it passed on to our children? Was it passed down from our parents?

Is it realistic? Although some things are good to copy or imitate, not everything is meant to be duplicated.

I have a very important question for you.

Are you a carbon copy or an original?

Can you think of things that make you unique or are you going with the flow and being a duplicate?

Hmmmmm…..I wonder…

    How on earth have I missed your blog all month long? I’m so glad you dropped by to mine so I could find you.

    I like to think I’m an original, but I do catch myself from time to time channeling my mother or someone from my past. I really see it with my kids, perhaps because I became a stepmom at 46 (they were twins, age 17) and felt unsure of myself. Over time as I’ve found my way with them, it’s gotten easier…most of the time at least.

      Hi Nadine! Thanks for the comment 🙂 WOW what a brave woman! 17 year old twins! That’s INTENSE. I think we all channel our mothers and take the good with the bad. My concern is that so many young girls aren’t following the greatest of role models and aren’t even thinking how it can impact themselves and their future. It scares me.

      This is my first blog ever and I am so excited to have participated. It’s also bittersweet because its just about over 🙁 I have learned soooo much! Do you have any idea how I can join another blog or challenge? I don’t remember where I found this one way back in January. Any/all advice would be greatly appreciated. 🙂

      Have a wonderful day!
