Learning to laugh at myself has been one of the greatest gifts I could have given myself. It took a while, trust me. I went through a phase where all I wanted to do was "fix" myself.
I convinced myself that there were so many things wrong with me, that it would be impossible for someone to love me. Then I started to take the time to get to know myself, as I would hope someone would and I started to see a more endearing, yet still potentially annoying, personality emerge.
There's a country song that goes a little something like this:
I know she's not perfect but she tries so hard for me
And I thank god that she isn't 'cause how boring would that be
It's the little imperfections it's the sudden change in plans
When she misreads the directions and we're lost but holdin' hands
Yeah I live for little moments like that
My bestie always says, "someone will love you," usually while rolling his eyes at a number of things that make up the greater part (not necessarily better part) of my personality.
So while running late for my client today & doing a very bad job of not annoying the living daylights out of myself, I decide it might be project me like to fall a little more in love with my personality. If I don't do it first ... who will!
Murphy is a really grumpy old man, because that very statement sent my day into a long line of dumb moments.
My directions suck! My diary has about 80% of the events that I actually have to attend. I am technically challenged beyond belief and most men will tell you that I drive like really badly.
It takes me about 2 hours to get ready in the morning, purely because I'm faffing and get completely distracted by social media. I never finish a cup of tea and lose my keys at least once a week. I have two pairs of glasses ... one usually has to be worn while I search for the other one and lose my to do list before I'm done.
So today, when I finally got to work about an hour late, I sat down to get stuck into work and pulled out my laptop cord ... which belonged to another laptop from home. This ... amazingly ... is not the first time! This ... is not the first time with the same client.
Thanks heaven's I'm so endearing!!!
