Pat's questions keep going through my mind. I can answer one. I know my weaknesses. One of them is staying on track. I'm truly a Gemini, going from one thing to another, without mastering anything. Another is lack of confidence. It isn't new. I've dealt with it all my life. For now---if I can make myself stay with it---I'm working on it. I'm the only one who can.
Value? Well, yeah, I guess I have value. I believe everybody does, just as I believe everyone is gifted in some way. Strengths? Well, I can be stubborn enough not to give up. Strangely, I never believed I would be a published author, but I refused to quit writing. It kept me out of trouble. It still does. ☺
I love Theresa's list! I also see myself in many of her points. However, I can let things go. It's a major weakness. She may be a stuff shuffler, but I'm a piler. It's obviously been passed down in our family, because we all are. In fact, if our heads were flat, we'd pile things on them, too.
Joan teaches me that we don't give up. Health issues are one of the worst things that can happen to us and cause us to see ourselves as weak...which is not true. Joan proves that each day. I'm in awe.
All of this reminds me that we're eight days into the new year, and I'm dragging my feet. Why? Gee, I wish I knew. It's not that there isn't plenty waiting for me to do. So I'll make a list, get a calendar, and create a schedule. There's a whole new year---minus eight days---to get things done. Wish me luck!
