Well, after last weeks post about 5 quirks you may not know about me, I figured I would top this 10 on Tuesday post, with 10 things I don’t do well.
- Eating right. This has been a battle for practically my ENTIRE life that I can remember, and that scale is forever going up and down. One day I will take control of it, and my life, and just live the healthy lifestyle. I love to work out, but hate to eat right…you see my struggle?
- Flossing. I don’t know why I got SO lazy with it, but seriously trying to aim to doing it once it day, is hard. On a good week, I maybe do it 2-3 times a week. Speaking of, I just got through doing it and I am needing to buy more at the store tomorrow!
- Deep cleaning. Now I know many of you see my house relatively clean majority of the time. But just reading this post from Karli’s spring cleaning list makes me exhausted! I need to do every.single.item off of her list. Ugh!
- Focusing on one task at a time. I really have tried to get better at this, but seriously, I haven’t seen much improvement in the last few months. I like to think I am a good “multi-tasker” but that is just code for the fact that I am unable to complete the first task completely that I was supposed to do, so I just moved on to the next.
- Letting go of friends. As an adult, I can’t seem to remember the last time I let go of a friend. You know, the friends that always bring the negativity into your life, complain about any and everything, and don’t seem to appreciate your friendship at all? Those friends. Yep, I am still hanging on to them.
- Talking on the phone. There are VERY few people that I actually talk on the phone with. I am much more of a texter (I don’t even know if this is a word) type person, especially if I only need to say a couple of words/sentences to you.
- Surprises. I love being the one to surprise other people, but I have a hard time accepting that others want to surprise me. I used to hate it (now thinking about it, I am not really sure why), but now I have grown to accept the fact that others are thinking about me, and want to show me that they care.
- Sleeping. I want to say ever since I got pregnant with Rochelle, and after she passed away, I haven’t gotten good sleep. It’s nice to know that other grieving mamas go through this too, because I literally have such a hard time staying asleep. Not really quite sure why, but I hope to practice some meditation exercises soon and new relaxation techniques.
- Accepting compliments. I don’t know why I have always struggled with this, I am thinking maybe it’s just insecurity in the end, but I really have to remind myself to say “thank-you” before blurting out something else like “no, you have really pretty teeth”, or “I love your hair too”.
- Moving on from the past. A lot of who I am, stems from the lack-of relationship I had with my father, and it took me a lot of years to learn how to let go, forgive, and move on from the past. It wasn’t easy, and I am still working on it at times, but I feel so much better after doing it!
Today, I am linking up with Karli from Sept. Farm for today’s 10 on Tuesday!
