IT’S WEEK 39 OF FINISH THIS … if this is your first time here, welcome! If you’re a repeat customer, thanks for playing along again. Your co-hosts are LISA (COASTLINED), JEN (The Arizona Russums), BECKY (The Java Mama) and NICOLE (Three 31) and the instructions are simple: answer the prompts on your blog and add the post to the link up. Next week, we’ll do it all over again with a new set of prompts (located at the bottom of this post). Let’s get started!


CHALLENGE FOR YOU … visit at least three (3) blogs and comment on their “Finish This” post. Even if you don’t know the person, introduce yourself and leave a genuine comment. If you know a blogger who would like to participate in this link up, invite them to join us. Blogging is about building communities!

1. I am most comfortable
in the driver’s seat. Even in a new city or place I’ve never been before. I prefer to drive, unless I’m with Husband – I don’t mind his driving. If I don’t know you, I won’t get in the car with you. I won’t sit in the backseat of a vehicle unless I know you REALLY well. But I’d still rather drive myself.


2. Diamonds are
ordinary rocks that handle stress and pressure extraordinarily well. And shiny. Diamonds are shiny.

3. I wish I could be more
forgiving of myself and set realistic expectations. I’m not saying I don’t have lofty goals I want to accomplish, but I’m really hard on myself with some things that just aren’t worth the extra effort and energy I put towards unrealistic perfection. Does that make sense? A lot of it has to do with my “people pleaser” personality but I am (slowly) learning that concept is worthless and a waste of time. I’m also learning that I cannot be friends with every body. And that some people didn’t listen to their Mamas (or Sunday School teacher) about the Golden Rule. I treat people like I want to be treated, but some folks missed school (church) the day that lesson was taught. Some folks need Jesus. 🙂


Invite your blogging friends and come back next Wednesday for another round of Finish This where we’ll answer another set of prompts!
