Get Real Monday's

This week in my women's community group we are talking about strength's and weaknesses. Why does society tell us not to talk about our strengths? Like if we do it is bragging or we are being prideful. Why does everyone so focus on their weaknesses? I have so many weaknesses it would take me days to fill up this blog. But when I try and look at my strength's it is like I have to really grasp or ponder for a long while what they really are.

So in honor of Get Real Mondays I am going to try and list some of my weaknesses and strengths.

weaknesses-laziness when it comes to housework, lack of discipline, easily distracted or hyperfocused on things, procrastination, boldness that can put others off.

strengths-Can adapt to anything, compassionate, outgoing, creative and loves people.

I used to think if I just worked on my weaknesses then I would be a better person, but as time has passed I have learned to play to my strengths since really God has given those strengths to me. And you know that there are other people out there that have immaculate homes, lead a very disciplined life, can focus without becoming addicted to something, that get things done in a reasonable time, and that can use a ton of tact while still being bold...that I don't have to be all those people. That if I had all of those things too that the world would be such a boring place.

That God made me who I am for a reason. He gave me adaptibility so that when change happens I just roll with the punches and not freak out. That when someone is hurting I can give them a shoulder to cry on. When God puts me in a situation that might be uneasy that I can handle it with a smile, or a laugh. That I can think outside the box on many issues. And when I am around people I gain so much more than when I am not.

So, what are you focused on? Strengths or weaknesses?
