    What are some of thing negative things on the list you're guilty of?

    I don't dream very big because I'm afraid of disappointment.
    I worry about the small stuff too often.
    I don't always speak well of others. >>; I actually feel the need to complain about people all the time to help me feel better.
    When it comes to social comparison, I'm just terrible. Always thinking everyone's better than me...
    >< I'm ALWAYS seeking approval from others.
    Admittedly, I do not nurture my social relationships. Need to work on that.
    It takes me a while to accept what cannot be changed. I'm always thinking I can fix something or make a bad situation into a good one. It takes a slap in the face sometimes for me to realize I can't do anything about it.

    What things do you think are totally silly and won't ever do?

    Living minimally is kinda silly to me. I'm happy with my clutter. xD It's organized and I enjoy looking at it. I do get rid of things I don't need, though. I do my best to not be a pack rat...
    Waking up at the same time every morning = LOL! I wake and sleep when I feel like it. Though, when I have this baby, he'll be the one controlling that. @__@

    Hm, I liked that article. I got a lot about myself analyzed and I feel like I just set some personal goals for myself. There's definitely room for improvement so that I can be a happier Fluff. <3

    Don’t hold grudges.
    Treat everyone with kindness.
    See problems as challenges. My dad never understood why I moved to a tiny town an hour away from home. I needed it though, I needed a change that was still a safe bet. When I moved back home he always would talk about how it had been a big mistake, but I point out all the growing I did and how I regreted nothing from my choice despite how miserable I had been there.
    Express gratitude for what they already have.
    Dream big & Get absorbed into the present. They seem like contradictions, but they're really not. You have to live in the here and now, but you must also strive.
    Avoid social comparison.
    Choose friends wisely.
    Take the time to listen.
    Eat well
    Tell the truthWhile I am guilty of white lies here & there, for the most part it's actually hard for me to lie.
    Accept what cannot be changed.


    What things do you WANT to get in to the habit of doing?

    Don’t sweat the small stuff.
    Never make excuses.
    Nurture social relationships.
    Meditate. Maybe
    Exercise.
    Establish personal control.Stiiiiiiiill working on that.


    What are some of thing negative things on the list you're guilty of?

    Speak well of others. I try, but then I catch myself in full gossip mode at times around other gossipy people.
    Live minimally. It's not that I have too much stuff, but oh man the clutter!


    What things do you think are totally silly and won't ever do?

    Wake up at the same time every morning.Ha, I work retail! But maybe someday once I quit.....?
    Never seek approval from others. No you can't please everyone, but the important people in your life are important for a reason. Yes, in the end YOU have to be happy with your decision, but it's smart to think of concequences first before going blindly on yur own desire.
