Sanchez tagged me and I tag; Missy, Nicole and Rhianne

The task: fill in 12 likes, 1 love and 8 hates like Cassie in her therapy video. Below, the bolded things are what you MUST include. Also, please link it back to Erimentha, and link it onto 3 other blogs you admire!

Here I go : 
Abracadabra, Wow! 
I like boys who have a geekiness to them girls who have nice wavy hair
I like the sun
I like  Egyptian “winters”
I like my family
I like tanned skin and bright eyes.
I like soduku 
I like books
I like acceptance
I like studying J
I like laughing out loud and meaning it.
I like serenity
I like words
I love the world.

Today I got a phone call telling me I was hired.

In some ways, I love everything. Its less, its less of a thing to like, its less distinct, its less particular, I like things that I like but I love everything. There’s more choice in like, Cos even the worst things have things you love in them. I don’t know what you mean about things I hate…

I hate feeling trapped
I hate knowing that I have a lot of growing up to do
I hate having to work to be able to live…
I hate the “grown-up” world
I hate distances.
I hate that I need to get away from here but in a way, I also sort of really really really love it .
I hate not knowing how to write a manuscript.
I hate people who don’t love enough. 
I hate this, wow...

I enjoyed doing that! I got the government job. I start on Sunday. I need to do some commenting. I have even more family coming today!

I totally agree about embracing your flaws =) But, I don't believe that I myself am enough. I need a redeemer and salvation from my sin, and fulfillment that only comes from Jesus Christ. I never want to be overwhelmed by my flaws, but I want to grow in ways that I should, and I want to be always humbled and challenged, even when I am encouraged and even though I know I have no guilt in life (as a Christian).
The danger of something like Gala's challenge is that it focuses so much on self, and self fulfillment, self-help, our own happiness. One example - my greatest prayer right now, looking ahead to marriage and children one day, is that my husband and children's desires would become my desires, so that there is no struggle of selfishness - so I am happy when they are happy, and not just looking for 'me-time.'
Anyway. I definitely agree that we can adapt dubious things to be useful and helpful. It's just that the core of this is so contrary to what I see as truth and love. But I look forward to seeing how my friends like you develop it. Thank you for responding so pleasantly :)

So happy for your getting the job Sara! =)
with love,
