What are your good and bad characteristics?

My good things:
I'm 65 but strong and resilient.
I am loyal.
I am optimistic, mostly.
I am a good weight.
I sleep well, mostly.
I have empathy.
I can do for myself.

My bad things:
I smoke cigars.
I drink too much.
I'm something of a recluse.
I never forgive someone who purposely hurts my feelings.
I've been known to be vindictive.

Wow Liz! I love the honesty here - so refreshing! I don't see being a recluse as a bad characteristic necessarily (I am a semi recluse but have good social skills).

My good points:
- I am positive minded
- Compassionate/care about those that suffer
- I can easily make others laugh (used to do stand up comedy although you would never think so from my posts on this forum....a case of 'who knew?")
- I have a youthful face and a bit of an adolescent/young mindset
- I am creative, e.g. like to upcycle (adapt/reuse something discarded)

My bad points:
- I am outspoken e.g. my honesty gets me into trouble occasionally
- I lack patience
- I overeat
- I find exercising hard to get into (but I do have ageing aches and pains)
- I am very picky when it comes to choosing friends

Interesting subject Liz! OK, let's see...

I've always had a thirst for knowledge.
I have strong moral values.
I love deeply.
I'm not what anyone would consider wimpy.

Those things can also be twisted into

I think too much.
I'm often too judgemental and idealistic.
I often procrastinate.
I worry too much about things I can't change.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

I'm very creative, and tend to think outside the box. About just about anything.

I'm good with one-liners and zingers, and have a crazy sense of humor.

I'm generous to a fault.

I've been told I think with my heart instead of my head, especially when working with kids.

I have a nasty sarcastic tongue, and I'm not afraid to use it.

I'm a procrastinator, especially when it comes to cleaning or mucking out the basement and garage. A bit of a hoarder.
