WWTK-Advice and Accomplishments

Time to get a bit nosy and check out what everyone's saying.  Go see Mamarazzi and Queso, they have the We Want to Know thing all wrapped up.
This week the questions are from Queso:

  1. What is the best advice someone has ever given you?  Just to try.  You'll never know if you can until you try.  Failing isn't the worst thing, failing to even try is the worst thing.
  2. What is your greatest accomplishment?  I could say my boys, but they are still a work in progress.  I'm going to go with going back to school for my geology degree.  I was scared of the math I would have to take and not sure if I could juggle a toddler, school, running a house and a part time job and keep all the balls in the air, but I did it with the help of my husband and my mom and Nick's parents.  And now I have a job that uses my degree, which is an even better accomplishment.
  3. Who do you admire?  My husband, Nick.  He has accomplished some awesome stuff and he is so encouraging to me and our boys.  He's a wonderful person and truly my best friend.  And, bonus, I love him too.
  4. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?  I wish I was a bit more outgoing and comfortable with strangers when I meet them in person.  I don't like social situations where I don't know anyone, I don't mingle well until I get to know people.  Once I'm comfortable, I do OK.
  5. How do you want to be remembered?  As a wonderful wife and a good mother.  At least that's how I would want to be remembered at this stage of my life.
So there you have it.  Head on over and see the other lovely ladies who have thrown their answers out there for all to see.

Keeping those balls in the air is very hard but I'm sure you aced it.

I'm with you on #4; I CAN be outgoing but I tend to hang back, just watching. And I feel like I could be having more fun if I just got out there more.

I hear ya on #4 - i find myself like that...I can't just strike up a conversation with a person...if they make the first move and I like them, then we're good to go. I also find it easier when kids are involved, for example the other day at my daughters needle appt, this dad and little boy just striked up conversation with us and now when we see each other in the street, its Hello to each other!

Math scares me! I think that's why I keep finding excuse after excuse to not go back to school!!!

i'm loving reading everyone's advice. it's good to remember.

and a college degree is a huge accomplishment!

Jill said...

I also relate to #4 - people who know me would laugh at that, but when I first meet someone? I get all awkward, tongue-tied, and can't think of anything to see. This is even worse when it's a man!! haha!!

Love that advice and it is SOOOOO true.

Doesn't blogging help to be more open? It sure did me. Think of meeting a stranger as a fellow blogger. you can chit chat with us pretty good... give it try with those everyday people you run into.

Sometimes you'll regret it but 9 outta 10 times you'll be pleased.

I'm the same in social situations. I think I've found a lot of people feel most comfortable when they know those around them

Emmy said...

I don't think I could have balanced school, family and kids, awesome accomplishment.

Mamarazzi said...

failing to try really IS the worst thing...love that!

thanks for linking up!!

I wish I were better socially too. I get really awkward and lose my filter and make weird faces. I think people think I'm having a seizure. Congrats on your degree! I hope to one day go back to school. Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment.

Great list! It's hard to be outgoing with new people, especially if they aren't welcoming! I always hate that.

Being a good wife & mother is a great thing to want to be remembered for.
