I recently went on a personality profiling course … Thinking it would be a great way to learn how to better communicate with colleagues and clients … Turns out I have gotten so much more out of it personally, being reminded who I am again … I feel like I’ve had a holiday by simply changing some of the ways I do things so I’m engaging my dominant personality more.
So why am I falling head over heels?
Well, funny thing is, up until maybe 18 months ago, I was one of those people that fall all the time! Yes, I walk around in gorgeous stilettos most days but that has absolutely nothing to do with it … I would just find myself on my knees or my ass on a regular (maybe 2 or 3 times a month!) basis … Usually accompanied by raucous laughter at myself, scraped knees, torn jeans, you get the picture, my scarred knees tell the story! I also used to wear crazy bright big earrings, coloured eye shadow or mascara every day, and in general dress loudly.
Insidiously over the last 18 months, my secondary personality has slowly taken me over, a necessity for the role I’m playing most days, but it has resulted in me wearing black almost every day, I no longer wear earrings at all, let alone coloured eye shadow, and I haven’t fallen in about the same period! I’ve also been exhausted! Couldn’t sleep enough really! And I don’t much like this me!
So, of course the minute the blinkers dropped off my eyes on reading my personality profile last week, I made a conscious decision to change some things, to try and be more me.
Funny story, I’ve tripped over my own feet twice in the last two days! Like seriously!?!?!?!
So I guess I’m head over heels for the real me … Last night I said, “single and loving it!”, this morning I say, “me and loving it!”!
