Saturday Confessions

Confessions? I like honesty. I like to think I am a very big fan of it. But when I really stop to think..... am I truly honest in all things? In my thinking. In my talk. In my way of life. In my marriage. In the way I am raising my children. In my time management. In my priorities. In how I portray myself to others. Bottom line...am I an authentic person? I want to be. I really, really do.

I found Melissa's post at A Familiar Path  and even though it's not full of deep confessions, it's still fun and it does help me check up on myself. 

So here goes::

I have a really hard time letting go and allowing my children to be children. Therefore this was hard for me.

2.  I'm very rarely satisfied with things around my house. I'm constantly rearranging furniture, painting, and looking for ways to change the decor.
3.  I struggle with knowing if #2 means I'm not content.
4.  I am OCD about several things and I hate it. I consider it a curse.
5.  I love to get new books. Lots of times it's more about the idea of reading it than actually getting around to reading it.
6.  I have no self-control when it comes to food.
7.  I am a "screamer". When I get angry, I yell. I hate it.
8.  I think Sunday is the most stressful day of the week. I wish very much that it wasn't.
9.  I am not doing very well at keeping up with my 49 weeks of words. I am way behind.
10.  I forget everything! (Thus #9.)
11.  I want to be able to accept people for who God made them and not try to make them be who I think they should be.
12.  It is not even Saturday anymore. So should this be Saturday/Sunday confessions? Or should I just simply be in the bed?!!

Beth, You are a great mother, wife, daughter, and especially big sister! Your children love you more than you know and would not have you any other way than you are! Just like all of us! I love you!

Hey girl, dont feel bad I definitely do several of your confessions. I dont rearrange, but I'm constantly wanting to move, change vehicles, or get a new house. Crazy I know... Scott says I have a lost soul. I wish I could be just more content with all my blessing around me. I am a screamer too. I'm trying to work on that lately as I'm seeing Ivy do it back to me. It's something I hate very much about myself. And I only do it to Ivy. Sundays are stressful. This is extremely selfish, but I wouldn't mind going to church on Saturday just so Sunday can be the relaxing day of the week. With that being said, I'm not changing me religion... And the no self control on food.. I'm right there with you. Your post about the cadbury eggs. I'm right there with you. I can not buy stuff like that as I'll not be able to stop eating it. I used to hide it in the top of my cabinets only to find myself reaching for the step stool to get it. lol.
