3 Undesirables

Life is a series of periods where you define yourself, evolve, redefine yourself, evolve, find yourself, evolve, so on and so forth. In defining my 3 worst traits, perhaps it's time to consciously evolve right now!

1. Lackadaisical tendencies - I flit between exuberance and listlessness. My natural inclination is to be excited about pretty much everything, but when I'm overly stressed I melt into my couch and lose all motivation. You know it's time to worry when I cop to watching an entire season of Keeping up with the Kardashians in a single afternoon.

2. Overly analytical - I feel the need to understand and rationalize everything that people do or say. I was a psych major back in the day and that only made this particular trait worse! There has to be a catalyst to every situation and I need to figure out what it is, regardless of how obscure it may be. I'm sure it's easier to just live and let live.

3. Frustration tolerance - Oh, how I wish I could control my frustration over ridiculous little things. My blood pressure skyrockets when I stub my toe or when my cat scratches the side of the couch. In the big scheme of things, these are frivolous nuisances. Perhaps I need to do more yoga ;)

What are your undesirable traits?

  1. Wow, I could have written this! I still struggle with #1. It made me feel good to know I am not alone. I have found a lot of help with the others after reading The New Earth by Eckhart Tolle.
    My undesirable trait is speaking before I think and taking everything personal.

    1. Thanks for the book tip, Sherri! I'll check it out. Yeah, people don't like it when we speak the truth, sadly. We always have to be mindful and censor ourselves!

  2. I am with you on #1. I get exited and then nothing.

    need to work on it.

  3. I feel like I can relate to you on all of these. I have a tendency to get super excited about certain things, I jump in and get cold feet and stall out.
    I also let thing get to me, I over think thinks and misinterpret how other things were meant.
    I wear my heart on my sleeve and so I am a person who is easily hurt.
    I can also be overly opinionated.
