Life Lesson #4:
Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
Okay. This one I definitely don't have down. I can goof off and laugh with the best of 'em. But not only do I take myself so seriously, I take life so seriously too. I guess it's from years of being "perfect"... or at least trying to be perfect. During high school and college, if I had to erase or smudge something out on a piece of note paper, I would choose to get a new piece of paper and restart. Or I would rewrite them later. Or, as computers got more popular, I chose to type them up later. See where this is going? I even do it now with my to-do list. Or grocery list. Exhausting, I tell you. Still to this day I strive for perfection. With planning the wedding I am still trying to make it perfect. I mean, who doesn't want their wedding day to be perfect?! It's hard to give up the perfection. To me, it's organization and order that feeds into my perfection. Careful planning and thought goes into just about everything. But I am trying. Seriously. But it's hard.
Do you take yourself so seriously? Do you have advice for this "serious" girl? What was some of the best advice you received to get out of taking things so seriously?
