My Life in 6 Words

My friend Sandra decided to tag me with this one a few days ago. Now all I have to do is figure out which 6 words to define my life! I've really been having trouble figuring it out.

Let's see:

  • Retentive - yup, everything has to be in the right place.
  • Territorial - don't touch my stuff without asking & certainly don't move it.
  • Emotional - cry at the drop of a pin but laugh openly when I find a funny in life
  • Freeing - I do my best to get away from anger. I get angry easily since I have an awful temper but I live by the motto that "It isn't worth staying angry over. If It Won't Kill Me, I Let It Go."

Won't Kill Me, Let It Go!

Yup! Those are the words I live by. Since I really do have an awful temper (blame it my parents since I get it from them), I try very hard not to let others see it.

  • When David & I have a disagreement, I apply those words.
  • When Erin wants to wear nothing that matches, I apply those words.
  • When the bosses at work want me to do something that makes no sense, I apply those words.
  • When I see friends doing things that "get my goat," I apply those words.
  • When I know I'm doing something stupid, I apply those words.

Now I have to tag 5 other people. Let's see:

Gosh we are so similar! The only one that doesn't hold true for me is the crying. Sometimes I wish I would cry just for the emotional release but it just doesn't happen very often for me. But every other one is dead on for me. No wonder I like you so much, my friend! :)

Hah! You can't hide your temper from me! And I am not scared, have seen you angry (if only briefly) and the nickname I gave you still stands!
As for the rest, we already know we need a super sized box of tissues at the hand, and we love you for all you are.
Thanks for the tag and your words of wisdom! (And if I ever do something stupid that irks you please let me know!).

THANK YOU for not tagging me, that woulda just been one more thing to add to my way too long list of things to do that I never finish!

Cry at the drop of a hat, welll... I've seen that! Your box of tissues is all gone now, but I may have to make you another. :-) I find myself getting worse in this area as I get older. I wish I could only grow a temper like yours!

I love the honesty of your post. I cry at the drop of a hat, too. Always have. Can't stand it!

Happy Fourth!
