The 52 Lists (for Happiness) Project #19



List the ways you think that someone you love would describe you:

  • Competitive. Because that’s hard to miss.
  • Smart. Because if they didn’t notice, I’m sure I’d let them know.
  • Creative. Because everyone I love has been a recipient of my creations.
  • Particular. Just ask my daughters about the proper way to fold a towel.
  • Argumentative. Also hard to miss.
  • Stubborn. “Like a dog with a bone” stubborn. Way beyond what is good for me stubborn. Unrelenting, way beyond logical, STUBBORN.
  • Prone to bad temper. There have been times in the recent past, when I’ve been frustrated by how my hair is behaving, and I catch a look at my sister, Brenda. She is tense, terrified, and fully expecting that at any moment I will fling the hairbrush at the mirror in a blind rage. Because that’s what I did when I was fourteen. And that kind of temper is not easily forgotten.

The problem with this list is that the people I love know me all too well!

  1. Good morning, Cindy. Your family may know you well, but even more important is that you clearly know yourself well. And that’s a strength, no matter what’s on the list.

    • Good morning, Karen! I agree, it’s good to be aware of those things that make us unique, whether easy to live with or not. Thanks for reading, and for your comments!

  2. Great post Cindy! It really is amazing how well our loved ones know us, makes it a little difficult to hide our real feeling from them:)! Thank you so much for sharing! I hope your weekend was amazing and I hope you have a great week!!
