A friend with a great blog (and one that is updated often) is doing the NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) and I thought I would dust this off and have a few things to say this month. . .partially using her Tell the Truth which is 30 days of questions to use.
Today's is: What do you hate about yourself?
My biggest thing I can think of during the school/work year is letting myself get over committed and upset when things seem to be piling up. I forgot what is important. . .that I love my job, love what I do, the kids I work with, and each year try to be a better counselor. I take continued learning very seriously and try each year to improve my skills, my time management and my ability to do what I want to do, and do it well. When things go crazy. . .start of year, May, and usually right before the end of quarters. . .I tend to let myself get overwhelmed and end up having some sort of meltdown. I want to be able to take a deep breath and cope better, but I don't always. I can, and I want to be better at traveling through the stress times.
