About Me

I've learned a lot about myself in the last month or so. Today I started making a list in my journal. Some of them have been great discoveries. Some I knew but discovered in new ways. Others, insightful revelations that are a bit disappointing. I thought I would share a few of them.
  • I hate silence, except in my classroom, but loudness drive me insane.
  • I don't have as much patience as I like to think I have.
  • I absolutely love teaching students about Jesus!!!! In the past most of the teaching I've done has been in small groups. Lately I've done more large group teaching and I love it just as much. Didn't use to.
  • Although I need to see the bigger picture I think in details.
  • Part of me has started to give up on my biggest dream.
  • I'm not as extroverted as I use to be but still a solid ESTJ.
  • One's physical condition greatly influences one's mental condition and ability to do normal activities. What do you know? That applies to me too. I'm a slow learner at times.
  • I get really anxious when I have to talk about myself.

How about you? Have you learned anything new about yourself lately?

  2. One main thing I've learned over the past several weeks is that as much as I think I'm an outgoing, spontaneous individual - - I'm an introvert and proud.
    And sometimes, okay most of the time - - usually the problem isn't what ends up bothering me, it's the emotions that surface when the potential "problems" arise. Understand? Everything with me always comes back to emotions - - cuz I worry about things a lot.

    Thanks for posting this, and asking the question. It's always interesting to sit down and think about these kinds of things.

    You're awesome! I love you!
