Coffee & Conversation.


Okay, Okay. I'm a little late for this one.  I got busy yesterday and didn't get to finish typing this post out but I didn't want to miss this link up! You should go check two of my favorite Alabama bloggers, Lauren and Kalyn and join the link up!



Coffee & Conversation


Todays Coffee & Conversation question: What do you consider your two greatest strengths? What about the areas you would like to improve?

As I was growing up, we were taught a lot about spiritual gifts/strengths. I haven't taken the spiritual gifts assessment in years, so I am not sure what those are now. I think my biggest strength is my ability to connect with people. I have always been very outgoing. A social butterfly, if you will. I never meet a stranger. I still have my moments when I occasionally feel awkward, but I'm only human. For the most part, I can make friends anywhere I go. I love people and people love me. I try to be a light in every room.

My next strength is that I am extremely empathetic. Sometimes too much. Especially when it comes to those who can't take care of themselves. I have an insatiable desire to do things for others and take care of them. have a huge hurt that is constantly overflowing with emotions and empathy for others. I am a great listener, but my heart actually hurts for people. Or animals, or children, or the elderly. Commercials make me cry all the time. Haha. I love being able to relate to people on such a personal level, but this can also be a huge weakness for me.

I have two things I would really like to improve... I think we all suffer from the first at some point or another. I'm a procrastinator. Big time. With everything. Laundry, packing, school work, studying, cooking, shopping. Whatever. I do everything at the very last possible second making myself a total mess. Haha. I really am working on this.

This one is a little more personal. I have a very hard time walking away from things or people. I don't feel like I have to do this often, but even when something is totally bad for me, and it's hurting me, I can't just walk away. Because I am so empathetic, if there are other people involved, I don't want to hurt them too. I end up being hurt in the process because I didn't just walk away when I should have. I am really trying to learn to "Let Go and Let God". It's really easier said than done.

I hope you are all having a great week!
Happy Tuesday, Y'all!

I completely relate to these! I'm an extremely empathetic person too... to my core, I hurt! I'm a huge procrastinator, in EVERYTHING!!!! I always tell myself I'll start early and never do. I also have a hard time letting people out of my life, even if I so desperately need it.

I tend to procrastinate about some things. Being empathetic can definitely be a problem sometimes for me too! It is a strength and weakness all rolled in to one!

Heating bands wrapped across the barrel Mens Sweater are set at progressively higher temperatures from the hopper to the nozzle. The molding technician can regulate shot dimension by adjusting the stroke of the screw. The screw of a molding press is said to be on “bottom” if the screw is in the full ahead place. If the screw is in the full back place it's mentioned to be at full stroke or max shot dimension. This is normally measured on a linear scale in inches or centimeters but can also be|may also be|can be} measured volumetrically utilizing inchesᶟ or centimetersᶟ.
