Post #24 in the Blog Every Day in May Challenge, 250 or less. Prompt for May 24: Your top three worst traits.
So many choices, but here is the final list I can admit to (without husband input):
- I am always right. Yes, in spite of evidence to the contrary, I still think I’m right in most circumstances. So don’t argue with me over this. About this one I’m positive.
- I am messy. No matter how hard I try to be neat and well-organized, it just doesn’t work for me. My kitchen desk is a disaster. My office desk is a disaster. My closets—well, you get the idea. I take forever cleaning off a desk surface; the reason those papers are there is that I didn’t know what to do with them in the first place! Still don’t. And after I cook…
- I take on too many responsibilities and then do some of them poorly. I started to say “do none well,” but that isn’t quite accurate. I end up letting some things go in order to take care of other things. One year I decided to say “no” to everything. It was quite freeing. I didn’t have to make any decisions; I simply said “no” whenever I was asked to do anything. The next year I said “yes,” and I loved that, too. I was back in the middle of everything, which is where I love to be. Sometimes.
You’re welcome to argue with me on these. If you know me, you know other negative traits. But I refer you to number one.
