I’m still working on this list and don’t expect to be done until I cock up my toes at age 100 or thereabouts.

Fewer words, methinks.

1.      Taking yourself too seriously.

Been there, done that.

2.      Refusing to listen to feedback.

3.      Giving up.

Says it all, don't it?

4.      Going bathingsuit shopping in the dead of winter in a store with bad lighting and communal changing rooms.

(there is no picture here because we've all been there and tried to forget that)

5.      Eating the last deviled egg on the buffet that’s beginning to brown.

These things should never be sitting around more than an hour.

6.      Ignoring the little light shaped like an oil can on the dashboard.

This is never good.

7.       Keeping score of slights and hurts.

I get a lot of this in my counseling office.

8.      Not apologizing.

Almost as good as "I'm sorry YOU feel that way."

9.      Pretending to know what you’re doing all the time (I go with most of the time on this one)

10.  Worrying about what other people think.

too many of these!

11.   Quitting moving.

or... you can end up stuck and rusty.

12.  Letting clutter accumulate.

I hyperventilate just looking at this picture.
