Word-High July: Timpi

Please visit here to learn more about this 30-day challenge.


I often have trouble with self-control when it comes to staying on task. I get easily distracted. For example, I will sit down to work on family history research about one specific person or family, but there will be a wiggly leaf or a note in a sidebar of a blog, something that gets my attention…something "shiny", so to speak. It is downhill from there. I get to chasing rabbits, as we like to call it here, and before I know it, I have a hundred tabs up with things to read that have nothing at all to do with the person that I am supposedly researching. The things are interesting and educational in many cases, but they are not what I am supposed to be focusing on.

Also, if there is a cheesecake or shrimp in the area, any thoughts of self-control go totally out the window!

Do you have trouble controlling yourself? In what circumstance do you have the most difficulty in controlling yourself? Are you working on gaining better self-control in any particular area of your life?

  1. I have no control when there is chocolate and junk food like cheetos around- I shouldn't bring them into the house, but I do.

    1. It is a hard temptation to fight, that's for sure. Cheetos and Cheese Puffs are yummy!

      The bad things find their way into our house, too. Someone likes to sneak them into the cart when they think I'm not looking. I won't name names. haha

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Have a great weekend!
