What are my best qualities?
My wit, my tenacity, and my petty.
I would be remiss if didn’t mention the Mariah Carey Christmas Tree in the room: I skipped writing on Days 17 and 18. If you are new to this series, WELCOME! If you’ve been waiting for me to get off my rusty dusty to write, I’m sorry to have kept you.
My mind has been elsewhere, TBH. I’m having surgery tomorrow for the first time in my life. Needless to say, blogging has been low on the totem pole this week but I’m surprisingly at peace. I have my top qualities to thank for that.
Wit keeps me smiling. I always think about writer Regina Brett’s famous quote – one of my faves: ‘If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else’s, we’d grab ours back.‘ It could always be worse, I think. It’s true if you’re still breathing through everything you went through. You are here. I am here. That’s worth a smile.
I don’t like to quit. Astrology is one of my bags so I can tell you with certainty that tenacity is a hallmark of my Capricorn Rising. I’m not as hustle happy as I was before my journey, but it’s still there, keeping me focused on this new chapter in my life. Srsly, the fact that I wrote what you are reading right now was an uphill battle with my finicky creativity.
Yes, the petty is strong in this one. Always has been, always will be, I’ve learned. I’ve accepted my petty and have, in turn, tempered my behavior. It’s a part of my shadow work, a practice I recommend to every human on the planet and specific aliens elsewhere. Now, the typically negative trait provides me more insight on where I need to rehabilitate myself.
Or maybe I’m just dressing up fuckshit? Yeah, probably, but it’s still one of my best qualities.
Thanks for reading.
More tomorrow. Bye.
