Looking for a way to learn a bit more about fellow book bloggers outside of their interest in books, Danielle of There’s a Book created this meme. It is a fun way to step away from the books and share a quirky fact about you with others, all while promoting community!
This week’s question:
Tell everyone a bit about your very best quality or talent!
It is my greatest quality and my largest downfall – well, that and my perfectionism but that’s a whole other story. Simply put, I stand by my word. If I tell you I am going to do something, I will do it. I stress about meeting promised deadlines, whether it is for work, for family, for friends. If I am late on anything, I feel like I failed. A promise to do anything is something I take very, very seriously. Yes, sometimes I regret making a promise, and it takes everything I have to attend to whatever that is, but I still get it done. That’s my way. It’s not a bad quality to have, and based on most of my co-workers, it is a rather rare quality these days.
My answer is rather boring, and I wish I had a fantastic talent I could share with everyone. I’m curious how others would answer this question. What is your best quality or talent?
You are very welcome! Thanks for hosting this meme!
Thanks, Kathleen! It is frustrating for me to see so many people who do not keep their word. I've been burned many times in the past because I refuse to believe that others are not like me.
I completely agree with Kristy! Being responsible and somebody who tries their best to do well with their obligations is definitely not a bad thing. It's actually quite refreshing. Although, I do know what you mean about "over-promising", as you know, I have a bad habit of saying yes to practically everything…it's not a good thing sometimes. But I still love it.
Great quality to have for sure! Thank you so much for sharing!

It is hard to find people who keep their word these days. I think that is a admirable quality and one to celebrate.

In this day and age being responsible is never boring. You should be proud of that.
