WWTK Wednesday – Virtues edition

Yay! Time to tell all about yourself! Hosted by the below and Queso.

Photobucket1. What is the best advice someone has ever given you?

My sister never really seemed to be much for wisdom but there was one time – when she was living in the same city as me for a year – when she said “It’s always OK in the end. If it’s not OK, then it’s not the end.” And the more I thought about it, the more I realized how brilliant that statement is. And to this day, I live by this.
2. What is your greatest accomplishment?

Can I choose a couple of years? I look back over my twenties and from January of 2005 until Elliot was born in August of 2007, I did a LOT: planned a wedding, defended my thesis, graduated with a Masters, got a real job, got pregnant, and had a baby. It seemed like a whole lot but I am most proud of me, getting my life together at that time.
3. Who do you admire?

People who have their shit together. My boss is the kind of person who is always prepared and on top of things and has her life situated. I know she has a lot of stuff going on and doesn’t always have things go as planned but she is prepared to handle it. So her. And my husband, who can stay calm in the craziest of situations. I just wish I could do that.
4. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?

The above! I wish I could handle all things that come my way in a more calm manner. I usually freak out first and then tackle them. Though, some days I am more prepared than others.
5. How do you want to be remembered?

I definitely want people to remember that I was kind and willing to sacrifice for my family. I would also like them to think of me as put together and organized but able to drop it down and have fun.

(This must have been in Spring of 2006(?) because it was right after my tentative graduation form grad school.)

  1. Everything does end up ok – there have been times in recent years where It thought things had gotten bad enough that I’d never fully recover. But you know what? It always ends up being ok. Good philosophy to adopt – and use to remind oneself when the going gets tough!

  2. Too funny!! I had to laugh out loud over that woosah!!! I told a friend just this am to say wooo sahhhh and rub her ears to relieve the stress over going back to work!!!

    Great minds do think alike!!
