30 Days of Truth - Day 1

Day 1 - Something you hate about yourself

WOW!   What a tough one to start off with!   I mean, yeah, I can name a few things that I hate about myself, but which ones do I want to broadcast on the internet?!?!?!

Well.. here it goes.... I think if I had to name one thing, it would have to be my temper.  There are a lot of times (especially with my hubby)  There are a lot of times where I'll get really irritated or mad about something small that can be avoided.

I need to learn to let the little unimportant things go.  I can completely go off on my hubby for the littlest thing...and then afterwards I stop and think... well why was I mad about that in the first place???

I tend to blow things up and over react I guess.  Instead of saying... "Will you please not do that" or just completely forget about it because it's so small and dumb in the first place, I just get all irritated and mad.

I wake up in the mornings with the intention of not getting upset, and letting the little things go.. but when it comes right down to the moment, I just do it without thinking... I don't think before I get mad...I just do and say things i regret saying afterwards.

I've tried doing some reading on anger management.. and got some ideas, but I'm not sure how to implement them.  Yes, counting to 10 before I do or say anything would probably help tremendously.. but how to remember to count to 10 in the moment... that's the hard part.

Controlling your temper is hard sometimes. I REALLY have to work at it. With a 17yo daughter and a 10yo daughter, the bickering this summer is driving me crazy!! LOL! I really try and just pick my battles :)
