You haven't failed, til you give up and don't care anymore...

Friday, February 08, 2013

One of my greatest strengths I have found in myself is having the ability to admit my faults. I have a alcohol problem, I have a addiction to food, I get word vomit and can be a real bitch at times when voicing my feelings, I interrupt people, especially my husband, too much, I chew my nails, I procrastinate on projects, I'm late to most places and events, I drive too fast, I am horrible with money...
But with these faults, I have made progresses I didn't think I could. I am aware of alcohol on my health and how it effects everything in my life, and I'm still trying to get through this addiction everyday, I've lost weight even though my binge eating disorder, I have tried to approach situations in a less forward bitchy ways lately, I try to listen thouroughly to what people are talking to me about and wait my turn to speak, I painted my stubby nails to try and prevent my 20 year chewing episode from continuing, I set schedules for my days on what I need to get done so I don't slack on projects, Trying to leave earlier than usual when going somewhere, trying to remember that tires for my new car are $200 each so I take it slow on the canyon and not wear them out so quickly, priority spending and bill paying is a huge focus;working on it!

See, alot of my faults that I am so very well aware of, I have made it a point to work at and make better. I've learned from them. I'm doing better. I getting to the point of liking myself again... There is hope.
