Coffee and Conversation: Strengths and Weaknesses

Coffee & Conversation
Linking up with Kalyn and Lauren for another week of Coffee and Conversation.
This week’s question:
What do you consider your two greatest strengths? What about the areas you would like to improve?
I dread these questions in interviews. For whatever reason, I have a hard time boasting about myself, and I am also scared to show my weaknesses because it makes you feel vulnerable and well…there are many more weaknesses than strengths in my book. There is always room for improvement. 
I feel one of my greatest strengths is my loyalty. If you are a family member or friend…I am loyal to you for life. I always give you the benefit of the doubt, back you up and am there for anything you need. If you treat me right, I do the same for you. I am also this way in my professional life. If an employer treats me right, I am loyal forever. If there is a nice client/vendor…I will do what I can to make sure you receive our business. 
I am a hard worker. I do what I can and feel accomplished when I can cross things off in my mind that I did. I feel proud when I am home on a Saturday and have the entire house cleaned from top to bottom before 11am. At work, I try to get everything off my desk as soon as I see it. I hate having piles of things that need to be done, so I do it as soon as I can. 
 There are so many things that I need to improve on in my life, it is just easier to make a list! 
I need to improve my strength and time dedicated to my faith.
To stop worrying about things I can not control. 
I need to learn how to say no, and accept that it is a perfectly acceptable answer sometimes.
I need to be more confident in decision making. While I can make professional decisions easily all day, every day…I have a hard time making the little decisions in life. Do I buy this or not. Where are we going out to eat? What do I want to do today. Those decisions can daunt me, and drive my husband crazy!
There is always room to improve your marriage. I strive every day to be a better wife.
I would like to learn new skills and hobbies.
I love to cook and feel that I am fairly decent at it, what I am not good at is baking. I need to practice more!
I have been trying to eat cleaner, healthier foods and have been doing pretty good. I need to work on the physical side with consistent exercise.

    I also struggle with worrying and decision-making, as well as trying to eat healthier.

    Love this post! I agree… I always hate it when an employer starts asking questions about your strengths. It’s like you just want to say, are you trying to make me conceited?

    These are tough questions, and I too avoid them because they often make me feel exposed. I mean I know that I have weaknesses but I don’t like to exaggerate on them. Does that make sense?
