I am Flawed.

Day 24, Friday: Your top 3 worst traits.

I have, admittedly, been a horrible participant in the Blog Everyday in May challenge. I just feel as if I have really had great content to share, and I did not want to put that on hold. Although today I was going to post something different, I saw the topic and felt it was absolutely necessary to write this post.

Why, you might ask, was it SO important for me to complete this post? Well, simply because I think social media gives a skewed image of our lives. Although I try to be as real as possible on this little space, sometimes I am scared to blog about the negative, or do not want to dwell on less than perfect things in my life, so I skip over them. I do not exactly see this changing anytime soon, but I do find it necessary to share the not-so-perfect aspects of myself with you all sometimes, like now. 

So, here are my top three worst traits:

1. I lose sight of God DAILY. Seriously. Although there are days I just feel His love all around me, embracing me and encouraging me, there are also times throughout those same days that I feel no connection with Him, that I question whether or not He is with me. This happens more often when I have crazy busy days, probably because my quiet time is the first thing to go. On days I lose sight of Him, I am not a nice person. I NEED His grace, because without Him I am lost. I have to constantly remind myself that He is with me, even when things get crazy. I admire those women that can live the majority of their days praying and listening to God's guidance, I need more of that in my life. 

2. I am terribly moody. Sometimes I wonder if I am bipolar because I can wake up so happy and ten minutes later just be irritated or upset or mad. Sometimes I feel like I can't even control it, which is a joke because I can and I refuse to use excuses for my behavior because there are none. These mood swings end up coming out on my loved ones, and there is no excuse for that either. I pray on this one a lot.

3. I have really limited patience at times. I think it comes down to me wanting to be a control freak and have a plan for everything. I get frustrated at silly things like being asked to repeat myself or being given the infamous "let's talk about this later." Although I know I am getting better at this, I still have a LOT of work to do.

That's all friends. Maybe you can learn a thing or two from my worst traits!
