30 reasons I am FAR from perfect

On my journey towards mindfulness, I am learning to embrace the messy and the moments that I may not be so proud of. A good place to start is acknowledging my imperfections, and what better way than to share them with you! (Plus, you can get to know a girl quickly if you know her short-comings.)

  1. I get “hangry” really quickly.
  2. I hardly ever make my bed.
  3. Either my makeup or my hair is done–never both.
  4. Sometimes I forget to say I’m sorry.
  5. I say sorry too much.
  6. I am at least 5 minutes late to almost everywhere I go.
  7. I compare myself to others.
  8. I’m selfish.
  9. There are at least 5 clothing items on my bedroom floor at all times.
  10. I don’t remember things very well, even if they happened last week.
  11. My first inclination is to judge a book by it’s cover.
  12. I do not like math.
  13. I have to actively choose to love others, each and every day.
  14. I do not always love others well.
  15. I feel the most like myself when I have had coffee.
  16. I can’t sit still for very long.
  17. One of my pet peeves is when people do not listen to what other people say.
  18. I forget to wear sunscreen a lot.
  19. I don’t, and will never have, the “perfect summer body.” Whoops.
  20. I spend a lot of time planning out what I want to do rather than actually doing it.
  21. I do not know what I am going to be doing next week, let alone after I graduate.
  22. I really like being independent, but I love when others care for me too.
  23. I’m more sensitive than I should be.
  24. I can waste a day easier than I’d like to admit.
  25. My mind is often on things of this world, and not on things above.
  26. I am impulsive, especially with my money.
  27. I try to “do it all” and it never works.
  28. I get bored and distracted easily.
  29. I forget to text people back all the time.
  30. I seek out others’ approval.

Here’s some bloopers for you too πŸ™‚

Alright, so I was vulnerable–now it’s your turn. What are some of your short comings and are you in the process of coming to accept them?

Love,

Jennifer

    First of all, awesome blooper pics….nailed it! Second of all my flaws:
    1) I get hangry
    2) sometimes I care too much
    3) sometimes I care too little
    4) i’m not great at completing goals
    5) I’m awful at “saving” money
    6) I don’t spend enough time in the word as I should.
    Great thing that we have a savior who is perfect to cover our mistakes.
