I’ve seen a few bloggers doing an “A to Z of Me” and I decided
(3 months ago but I’m just getting around to it) today that I would jump on the bandwagon with them. Mostly because I thought, “There’s no way I could think of 26 words to describe me!” Challenge accepted, self! To keep it short and maybe a bit more attention grabbing, I’ll do 6 letters a week and post every Tuesday in September. Right, let’s get started!
A is for Aroha. Because that is my name! Cop out? Ok fine, A is for Active, something I’ve tried to be over the past 12 months. From personal training, to tennis, to running, I’ve tried to be as active and as fit as possible. It’s a far cry from where I was the first 4 years of my son’s life, which was lazy, overweight and unmotivated!
B is for Balanced. I finally feel like I have somewhat of a balance between working, being a mum, being a wife, and looking after myself. There are only so many hours in the week. Sometimes you just have to say “no” and prioritize.
C is for Caring. It took me a while to come up with this one. Calm? Not really. Centered? Hmmm, nope! Creative? Definitely NOT! But I do care. A lot. I like to think I am compassionate (ooh another C!), thoughtful, and caring to not just those closest to me, but everyone I meet.
D is for Delightful. I ummed and ahhhed about this one, because honestly, I’m not sure how “delightful” I am, but I think overall I am a pretty pleasant person to be around, and I try to make people smile and laugh. I thought about determined, but I think that’s a bit of a stretch. The only thing I’m ever truly determined to do is crawl in bed and go to sleep.
E is for Envious. In the interest of keeping this list real, I am often envious. I don’t think being envious is a negative thing. I think there’s a difference between envious and flat out jealous. I can be envious of people while still being happy for them, and not wishing them ill will. I think that’s the difference?? Sounded better in my head, anyway!
F has to be for Fantastic. Doesn’t it? Or Fabulous? I was going to say “funny” but I’m really more sarcastic, which not everyone thinks is funny, so I’ll save that for the S’s. As you do!
There you have it, the first installment. I might make up a poster of all these words when I’m done. If not to remind myself how wonderful I am, then to at least remind my husband and son, lest they forget. Have you done an “A-Z of Me”? Post a link in the comments! I’d love to read!
Linking up of course, with Jess for I Blog On Tuesdays
