Achilles

Celebrating 700 posts. You'd think I'd have mastered myself after 700 posts to self-scrutinize.
Here's my problem. Don't laugh.
I am impatient.
To a ridiculous fault.
Just ask.....well anyone who knows me.
And even though becoming a mom has mellowed me considerably, I'm a far cry from being cured. I suspect it's going to take a long time, and many years of life-lessons for me to find balance that way.
It's kind of like the Indigo Girl's song Galileo "If we wait for a time when all souls get it right, then at least I know there'll be no nuclear annihilation in my lifetime....I'm still not right" or something like that.
What is your Achilles heel, your one thing you cannot seem to change about yourself?

I know this sounds like a copy-cat but I'm incredibly impatient. For over 3 years now, I've left every general conference thinking, "I need to be more patient." I go in trying to find a new goal thinking I've conquered it, and I leave knowing I've got more to do. (wish me luck this weekend) Plus, every talk I've given in 3 years I've been asked to speak on patience. Coincidence? I think not.

Lately the chink in my armor seems to be finding the motivation to do much beyond the required minimum.

Happy 700! That's the first time I've ever said that. :) You rock!

Motivation is a big one for me. I get so excited to start something new, and then I usually don't have enough motivation to finish it. I am trying to work on that.

Geez, which one? Apparently I have a lot of heels.

One I'll mention, though, is kinda like Chan's. Follow-through. Or consistency. Basically the same thing for me. Keeping up what I start when I'm no longer motivated. Constant struggle.

Mine is selfishness. I know I'll learn to get over that once the babe gets here. I honestly have good intentions (remembering birthdays, anniversaries, etc.) but the follow through-ness seems to get me. Remembering to not only think about what I want to do, but remembering that those packages need to be bought, sent, etc.

right now i would have to say my mental state is hindering me from having any joyful or happy feelings. with the sleep deprivation and the incredible hormonal changes my body is going through, i am not myself and it is really annoying. i just had a baby and i can't feel joy.

Happy 700- wow! You're ahead of me!

Achilles Heel? Hmm. Like HSF, I have more than one! Biggest is probably impatience- mostly with myself. Also, procrastination. How they cohabit one body, I don't know.
