My Worst Traits

Day 24, Friday: Your top 3 worst traits

Oh man when I saw this prompt all I could think of was the line from Emma where she says to Mrs. Bates: "Ah! ma'am, but there may be a difficulty. Pardon me—but you will be limited as to number—only three at once."
And then Mr. Knightly yells at Emma and says "Badly Done, Emma, Badly Done."

I just love that movie.

Well onto my worst traits.

1. I hate when plans change: I'm pretty sure Cambodia was like lesson by fire when it came to this, because NOTHING will go according to plan in Cambodia. I used to be a big fat brat when people would change plans on my last minute. But I'm working on it, and am trying to be a lot more flexible.

2. I'm selfish: Everyone is selfish to an extent. I'm selfish when it comes to my favorite treats. Growing up in a family with 8 kids, treats were a big deal. So sometimes even still I have a favorite treat and I don't want to share it with anyone. I may let you have a small bite of my treat, or if I have a lot of it, I may even share a whole one with you. Just know if I do that, you're real lucky.
Don't ask me to share my bueno.

3. I'm Lazy: Lez be honest. I'm real lazy. One time we had this lady do our charts about what our life would be like based on our birthdays and time we were born and what not. She told me my cardinal sin from past lives was laziness. You know it's bad when a random lady tells you that the stars know you're lazy.
I'm definitely working on it more now, I didn't used to care that I was lazy, but then my butt grew with this desk job, and I didn't like that. So I'm finding ways to motivate myself. I'm working out right when I get home so I don't have time to talk myself out of it and be lazy. I'm scheduling things earlier on Saturdays so I don't lay in bed reading all day long.


Angi said... too, me too. I'm trying to work on it as well, but I can't stand it when something changes last minute. I'm a HUGE planner, and when something is planned and then a wrench is thrown in the works, I feel like I can't get a grip. It's bad...haha.

Girl, I'm with ya on the plans too. I am seriously inflexible and my mood depends way too much on how plans go. I'm working on my control issues. :)

Okay, as you know, I'm from a family of seven kids, so I so know what you mean about food. I am super protective of my food to this day. I used to hide snacks in impossible places so that my siblings couldn't find them. And now when I go to get a cookie and Angel already ate them all...I might cry.
I've never seemed to have a problem with laziness...but not being overly disappointed when plans fall through is a continual lesson for me to learn.

I am too lazy for my own good. I wonder if in my past life I was a rock?
