Songbird at RevGalBlogPals poses the question: Whether it's new friends or new loves or new employers, what are five things people should know about you?
Not in any particular order -
*I tend to /try to look for the good in people, situations...
When I was growing up, "Pollyanna" was one of my favorite movies. If that means nothing to you, I suggest you find a copy and watch it - the 1960 Walt Disney version with Haley Mills. I had the soundtrack (dialogue and all) on a record. I listened to it until it was no longer playable. I think that is where it all started. Then this became a survival technique in teaching children with severe disabilities. We focused on the positive - what could be learned, not what couldn't.
*I am not nice -
a. When I'm hungry. (My cousin's ex says this runs in the family.)
b. After my bedtime.
*I am goal oriented rather than process oriented.
This means crafts like knitting and other needle work aren't so good for me. I get so caught up in getting finished, I forget to enjoy the process. It also means I get lots of stuff done!
*I am genuinely interested in finding the spiritual in my many tasks (see#3), but I have to be intentional about it.
This doesn't come naturally. Life is so much better when I live this way, but it's an ongoing effort. Prayer helps.
*Family is important to me.
I love being ManBoy's mom and Gifted & Talented's wife. I don't show them enough.
