TAFKAP: The Artist Formerly Known As Pepper

Betcha by golly wow, I am not a perfect person!  There are close to a thousand and one things I’d like to change about myself.  Sure, we always say, “We’re only human!” but is there anything wrong with striving for perfection- or at least, self-improvement?  We may never be flawless but we can always snip away at our nasty habits and unappealing traits.  As for me, here are some things I’d like to work on when it comes to my personality overhaul:

Temper.    My pot boileth over when things don’t go as planned.  I seethe with anger when my daughter tries to battle it out with me during a habitual power struggle.  Curse words come out of my mouth when some driver with an IQ of 50 tries to cut me off at the intersection.  Little things set me off like a dynamite.

Needless worry.  The operative word here is “needless”.   I read somewhere that “Worrying is like sitting in a rocking chair.  It gives you something to do, but doesn’t get you anywhere.”  That’s one lesson I’d like to drill into my thick skull.  Ever since I can remember, I’ve always been an advocate of worry, and it hasn’t done me any good- healthwise.  I often find myself losing sleep because of worrying over the smallest of things.

If I am known to possess those traits, I would like to do away with them.  It will take tremendous willpower to change one’s personality, but I will do it.   Like a boxer trying to knock his opponent down by round 5, I will damn well do it.

How about you?  Is there anything about yourself which you know you can possibly change- or improve?
