I decided to change things up a bit today and talk about me, me, me. After all, if you’re reading this, you wanna know more about the person behind the blog, right? I thought so. I wasn’t initially sure the best way to do this without coming across like some vapid reality star, so after some deep thinking (aka talking with my cat, Max), I decided to let Max interview me. He was happy to play along, since he felt it was a bit rude that he wasn’t a part of A Mindful Migration and wanted to introduce himself to y’all anyway. Being the indulgent Cat Mama that I am, I agreed.
I tend to be a people pleaser, which is both bad and good. It’s good because there is nothing wrong with wanting to make others happy, except when you put their needs and opinions before your own, then it becomes bad. There have been instances where my people pleasing ways have gotten me into trouble, like when I used to tease my hair to Jersey Girl heights to fit in and be taller. I kid; I kid. Sort of. It did technically make me taller. 🙂 All kidding aside, my desire to please others also made me more susceptible to following the herd, especially when it came to how I spent my money. And that is bad.
