No one wants to admit their flaws. I mean really – let’s wear a big ol sign and say, “hey – look at all things I do poorly!” Yeah, no. But I guess as they say, admitting it is the first step to make a change? Is that part of the 12 steps? I guess I should have Googled that first.
I figured since it’s January and the air is still filled with resolutions and such, that I would talk about some bad habits – and in theory,
saying them out loud writing them should help me break the habit. Hoping this doesn’t backfire.
Swearing. I mean seriously Kerri. I really need to take that down a notch. Maybe just stick to my fav “F-word” when I need to… but as my momma always says, “swearing is trashy.” And she is so right.
Writing in the third person. I rarely do it. But look what I just did above. Shaking my head over here.
Acting judgy. I don’t even think that’s a word. But regardless, I really try not to judge people until I get to know them. But first impressions are a bitch. ARG. Back to number 1.
Not working out. This is catching up to me in my old age. I need to get on a regular workout train. Key word being regular. I need to live a long time so I can swear less and be less judgmental.
Trying so hard. Difficult to elaborate on, but this one is solely for me. I’m not talking about this as it relates to my job, but more in regard to some personal things in my life. Sometimes trying too hard only sets myself up for disappointment. And nobody likes that.
Picking my fingers/nails. I KNOW. So gross. I only do it when I’m stressed. But I don’t really need to go on here.
I think that’s good enough for now. Now the hard part. Changing these bad habits into positive ones. Let’s check back later this year (if I remember) and see how things are going. Why not make your own list? It’s like a new and improved list of resolutions. What bad habit do you want to stop?
