I think that one of the most important things you can do for yourself is realize your flaws. You should always work at bettering yourself, but there are just simply some things others exceed at that you can’t quite figure out. That’s totally ok, because there are things that you are the best at!
Hair – I can’t do my hair. I have super fine hair that gets stringy when it is too long, but looks ridiculous too short too. I have watched about a million YouTube videos on curling and other various styles to try, and have had my stylist show me EXACTLY how she gets me to look amazing at my appointments. I have purchased all the right products and yet….I just cant. I look a damn mess if I do anything. Don’t even get me started on kid’s hair when Zoe’s starts growing out. Please send help.
Confrontation – I am the WORST at confrontation. I hate it. I will stew and hold shit in forever. I will agree with people even though I know I am right. (Unless it is important or makes an impact, then I force myself to say something.) I have never been able to ask for a raise. When I have given notice at previous jobs, I would make myself physically ill because I hate disappointing or upsetting people. Even if said job was horrible and the person I was giving the notice to a monster.
Hiding Facial Expressions – I have the worst poker face ever! Even if I hate confrontation, you can probably tell from the look on my face that I think you are an idiot and I am just agreeing to shut you up.
Crafting/DIY – I want to be creative. I pin the shit out of DIY projects and crafts on Pinterest. I can spend hours walking through Michael’s and Hobby Lobby. I even have some crafting supplies at home. For whatever reason, even following instructions closely, 9 out of 10 projects I attempt end up in the trash. I am hoping craft weekends with Laura will force me to get better at this. Our trays turned out great! That is a good sign, right?
Gardening – I do not have a green thumb. Not even a little. I basically trashed the whole tomato/pepper garden I had growing two years ago. I try to blame it on the fact that I was pregnant and lazy so I didn’t give it proper care. But let’s be honest, I have never been able to keep a plant alive. Good thing they don’t ask you to care for a plant before you have a dog or kid.
Planners – I have tried and tried to keep a physical planner up to date. I always start out strong for about two to four weeks and then abandon it for the rest of the year. It is a miracle I make it to any appointments or remember any link ups.
Alright, I think that is enough of my secrets. What is something you just aren’t good at?
