Here's a opportunity to have a perve at take that as they tell me to "have a little patience" whilst you read the rest of my nonsense. I didn't realise that having kids (durrr) would push my limits of patience to the very edge. I am obviously either a)very impatient or b)very efficient. I like to think B but we all know the reality is that it is A!
To be less control freaky/perfectionist
Yep, there I said it...I am a control freak. Again, I didn't realise this until I had kids but for 15 years I was running big accounts worth millions and had a team working for me and so *had* to be in control. I am slowly but surely getting better at this but find myself sitting on my fingers when the kids are say colouring as it irritates me if they go over the lines (naughty mummy!)
To be less SHOUTY
I have come to realise that I have an addictive personality - it has shown it's form in various guises over the years (which I won't be blogging about) and it takes me a while to realise that I am in the throes of an addiction. I believe that this is part of my genetic make up and I nearly always replace one addiction with another. Some of them have lasted for years, some I obsess over and then get bored of very quickly. Am learning to deal with it.
I actually can't think of a 5th thing I would like to change so instead, I'll leave you with this quote which is one of my favourites.
Peace and Love
