It's All About Me.

I am pretty comfortable with who I am.  

Are there things I would like to change?  
Absolutely.

But they are not things that make me who I am.
They are superficial things, like to be thinner, or shorter (yes, you heard that right!)

So, I thought I would write down 5 things that I like/love about myself, and 5 things that are my weaknesses.  I am not sure if I want to change my weaknesses, but it is healthy to recognise them and understand that they are a part of who I am.

So... here we go.

  1. I love the Wife and Mother that I am.  I am proud to have the children I have, and I know that Brett and I are doing a wonderful job.  I believe in my marriage and am very happy with who I am spending my life with.
  2. I love that I am organised.  It comes naturally to me.  I have excellent time management skills and even with 5 children, 8 and under, I am rarely late... and even when I am, it is NEVER more than 15 minutes.
  3. I love that I appreciate the little things.  I always take a moment to soak in things people have said or done for me.
  4. I love that I am a fiercely loyal friend.  Watch out if you hurt someone I love.
  5. I love that I know how to use a drill better than my husband.  I am very resourceful and I can fix anything.  I do not rely on ANYONE and I choose to live with my soulmate.

  1. Cooking is one of my weaknesses.  I can cook basics, and we eat very well, however I do not enjoy it and wish it was a passion.
  2. I can sometimes be too trusting of people and can be easily burnt.  I will never learn my lesson.
  3. I can never eat just one stick of kit-kat.  I need the whole bar!!!
  4. I am talkative and can sometimes say things that get taken completely the wrong way - and I usually don't even know it at the time.  
  5. Hair is a weakness of mine.  I wish I knew how to use a straightener, a curling wand... heck I wish I knew how to do a nice plait.   


And 10 random things about me:

  1. I am 5"8 - 173cm's tall.
  2. My favourite flower is The Peony.
  3. I can touch type at 60WPM.
  4. I do not like liquorice.
  5. I went to 4 schools.  2 primary and 2 high schools.
  6. I am an internationally qualified Ice Hockey Referee.
  7. I can drive a stick.
  8. My favourite cuisine is Mexican.
  9. I am a little afraid of heights.
  10. I can not swim in the ocean.

Now that you know a little more about me... you HAVE to tell me all about you.  

Don't leave me hanging...
