You Are Likely a First Born
At your darkest moments, you feel guilty.
At work and school, you do best when you're researching.
When you love someone, you tend to agree with them often.
In friendship, you are considerate and compromising.
Your ideal careers are: business, research, counseling, promotion, and speaking.
You will leave your mark on the world with discoveries, new information, and teaching people to dream.
Verrrrry interesting. They forgot to mention that as a firstborn I am probably way too bossy. I just might have a few control issues, that I strive to please and that I strive to protect and help others. I also tend to be way too serious (as my family will atest), am rule conscious (totally), conservative, and competitive (oh yeah, ask hubby, he hates playing board or card games with me) and not partial to risk taking.
You know being the first born and knowing myself you'd think I would not do the same sort of things to my oldest, but I find myself forever falling into the same old, same old. I seem to have bigger expectations of her. It's like she's breaking us in as parents, preparing us for her siblings. She's the one with the stricter rules, less leeway. Once we've lived through it, and realize we will all live and not die with certain things, the rules for that seems to ease for her & her siblings. I find it difficult to find a balance with this. She is the ground breaker, the one paving the way, the one on whom we make a bunch of mistakes. I pray lots we don't ruin her, that we are able to find this balance that we don't make things too hard on her. That she knows bottom line how much she is loved and what a treasure she truly is to this family.
Sheesh, now how did that goofy blog thing turn into a mushy post reducing me to a teary, introspective, unsure blob. Okay, I think it's time I go back to reading everyone's list for the spring reading thing before there is nothing left of me but a big puddle.
Oh, and if you are an American Idol fan, you have got to go over and read my friend Melanie's post on the judges judging her blog. Make sure you have no beverages in your mouth at the time of reading.
