the challenge

The “challenge” is to list 7 random things about myself and then tag some of you to do the same!
I'm going to put a list twist on it, and say 7 things I want to learn/be better about doing. (I started taking notes in therapy today, so I will include some things I wrote down.)

1. I want to be good at telling people NO.
2. I want to make decisions without worrying if it's the WRONG one. It just needs to be a decision. Not black or white or good or bad.
3. I want to be able to tell people when they hurt my feelings.
4. I need to remember more often that I am not responsible for other people's happiness.
5. I need to be okay with imperfection, mistakes.
6. I want to be able to just sit and not think about a million things I need to be doing. Just be. And maybe drink some tea.
7. I want to love myself, JUST the way I am.

Unfortunately, since it is like, day 4 of my blog...I don't know enough of you to tag.
So, this is just for Sheena. Ha.


  1. love this and love YOU!

  2. this is great Kristin, I love how honest you are. I think we all struggle with things like this, but we just don't talk about it enough. I love from your 'About Me' section: "I've finally accepted that it's okay to not be okay, an dit's okay for me to take a long time to get better." that's a keeper, I really like that. very inspiring. LOVE you

  3. yay! thanks for playing along kristin! i'm loving the blog!

  4. Kristin, this is really refreshing to read. I love that you are in counseling... the majority of my time at UMHB was spent going to counseling weekly. Also, I find that the majority of your 7 are things I truly struggle with like feeling responsible for other people's happiness or being willing to say no, and lastly being honest with people when they've hurt me. Thank you for being brave and thank you for your honesty. It's encouraging and it's helpful to know that just as I am working through life, so are many others like me.

  5. I love you and I love this because we're so similar. I struggle with the same things!

  6. I never replied, but thank you all for your sweet comments! So encouraging.
