This was originally my post for yesterday for Motivational Monday, but I had to get all that Miley and JT biz off my chest! So now it's Tuesday and here's your self help tip of the week. You're welcome.
Soul searching - it's a necessary evil. I call it evil because it can be hard and let's face it - the truth can flat out hurt. You don't have to go deep (THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID) to find out things about yourself. I love self help, if you haven't noticed. I believe we can always improve on our weaknesses and we are eternal works in progress.
So let's discuss a few of my weaknesses I need to work on:
I am promoter of raw honesty, transparency, good karma and never ending faith that things will work out. Which to me is a strength, but not everyone appreciates this quality - especially the raw honestly part.
Work on delivery.
I am a Virgo to my very core. I like to avoid feelings, but I will explode with them eventually. I am not an overshare-er with personal information, but I will blab for days about anything insignificant. I am often guarded and passive at first, but once I let you in I am fiercely loyal to you. But I have the good Virgo qualities too!
Let your guard down, trust your instincts about people.
I am stubborn, very stubborn & impatient.
Compromise, learn to work at a pace different than my own, value things that make a long wait worthwhile.
I can be witty at other people's expense.
Stop being an asshole.
I have grown a lot in the past year as an independent female and I can honestly say that I have focused on these (and other) categories. Except for the last one....that's a damn tough one! My sarcastic ass cannot stop cracking jokes. BUT I'LL WORK ON IT! Usually I just surround myself with people who can take a joke. Patience is a huge one for me that I can never seem to tackle correctly.
So tell me what are your tips for self reflection and more importantly tell me how to grow some patience and TELL ME NOW! Kidding...
