Ooh, a toughie this week, over at Listography, Kate has chosen "things I would change about myself" but they cannot be physically, just characteristics. Without being too modest and I am most definietely not perfect but I struggled to find some ideas!! I just believe that we shouldnt change things about ourselves because thats what makes us, well, us! But anyway, cliche aside, I like a challenge so these are mine:
1 - Procrastination - I definetely do put off tomorrow thngs that I can do today!! In terms of my writng, I usually have some free time to do this but often find myself looking for something better to do!! I dont like this characterisitic as if I had this attitude with everything in life, nothing would get done!
2 - Being self -centred! - now as a Mum, this is really not a good thing to admit, but yes, I can be self centred, thinking the whole world revolves around me! Not so much as a parent, as my son comes first, but when I want something, Ill do anything to get it and wont let anyone stand in my way!! Ooh, not a nice characteristic but then thats the whole point of this list!! (Starting to dislike myself even more...!)
3- Learning to keep my mouth shut!! - I can be a bit too honest when I dont realise it, but sometimes its necessary! I like to stick up for myself where others wouldnt, but then not everyone likes to hear the truth and this is where my downfall lies! Still, I wont be changing this any time soon as we are in a generation of foul mouthed people, mostly unnecessary, yet I only open my gob when and where it is needed, not because I love the sound of my own voice!! My mum always said my mouth would get me into trouble one day!
4 - Mood Swings - as my fiance kindly pointed out to me just now, my mood swings seem to be a bit of an issue!! Not sure if I would class this as a characteristic, rather something us women are born with! But yes, I admit through gritted teeth, that my moods can change from hyperactive hysterical girl, to quiet, irritable woman!! And worst of all, I let it out on my nearest and dearest, mostly my fiance. If I could change this, I would, but my darling Dean, I am a woman and this is not gonna happen any time soon!!
5: Learn to think of more characteristics I dont like in me!! - Yes, cheating a little, but I found this list hard and like I said,not because I think im perfect but because the negative things about me are probably what other people see in me, and not what I see. Far from it, Im sure during the week I will pick up on things that I should put in this list, so maybe ill come back and add to it!! *walks away from laptop sulking...!*
